For EBs, bigger brakes come in the Perf Pkg, which comes automatically with the black 19" wheel setup. In GTs you can get the 20s with the bigger brakes.

EB performance package brakes are the same size (4 piston non-Brembo) as the base GT.
They are supplied with 19" wheels, but 18" will fit as my car demonstrates in street config.

So are our performance brakes.. are they kind of like a Brembo knock off that Ford made on their own.?
I'm not sure who makes the "base" GT calipers. They are no slouch -- I road race on 'em and have NO issues at all.

I hear you they are amazing calipers that we have... they alone are worth the price of the performance package that we got

There's a guy on the EBM facebook group selling some Pony Package wheels/tires. That is a pretty good looking option.

Finally got around to test fitting my winter package from my old 2011 Mustang then took a 280 mile trip to pick my son up from college for Thanksgiving on Wednesday. Crappy rainy drive and mid afternoon rush hour traffic through Milwaukee sucked (5 MPH crawl) but was surprisingly much better on the way back through at 6 PM.

Still running the 2011 style TPMS Sensors and thought that "maybe" the car was OK with them as it was displaying pressure similar to what I had in them but the fault eventually popped up on the display and the "TPMS" indicator started flashing. Eventually the indicator stopped flashing and being right around 2k RPM on the tach face it is partially behind the needle and not too annoying. I've got a set of OE 2015-up sensors, just need to make an appointment to get them swapped in.

MB FIVE 17x7 Wheels
Gorrilla 26143S Small Dia Short Duplex Lug Nuts
215/65R-17 Michelin X-Ice XI3 Tires

This will be the 7th winter on the ugly as sin wheels, but only the 2nd winter on the tires ... got almost 58k miles out of the 1st set with 32-44% tread left so it was a no brainer sticking to these Michelin tires !!

Also I see they have the Ford tire sensor reprogramming tool for like 40 bucks
I had mine installed. According to the tech, they didn't program anything. They just mechanically installed and my car did the rest. But . . .they were Motorcraft parts, not aftermarket.
