Very nice, but why Honda center caps on the wheels?

Enkei caps are very expensive and the Toyota caps' diameter are smaller so they won't fit. I plan to paint over the caps when time permits.

Not direct bolt on. Aluminum brackets were needed and also the calipers had to be machined as well.

Brackets were custom machined. Costs for parts and labor were somewhere close to a grand.

Nicely done! those calipers are screaming for bigger wheels! So jealous of the SET spoiler.

I think you should add some fogs to complete the front.

Planning on tinting the windows?

Windows are tinted with Llumar ceramic 50%. The darker tint is nice but I can't really back out at night.

I had 18'' wheels before but the empty gap between the wheel and rotor doesn't look good. Also, there's a silver painted SET trunk spoiler on EBay at the moment.

Thanks man. I sold the Camry last year. The spoiler, front, side and rear valances give the Camry a unique look compared to the sea of other Camry. I was able to sourced most of the valances except for the side skirts.

The wheels and brakes setup live on in my current 07 Camry.
