@  2017350GTRRR : (10 February 2018 - 12:57 PM)

Hello All! I have a 2017 GT350R chassis HR687. Does anyone have the final breakdown on the 2017 production number totals and production of each specific model and option pkgs yet? Ford SVT told me there were 942 R's made and about 6000 GT's. Also, what is a good street tire to run on an R since no other company makes the R rear tire size? Can I run the front tire size on the rear of the R? I have seen phohot of guys running the 325-30-19 on the rear but it looks too large for the wheel well. I wanted to go with the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S. Thanks!

Thanks guys, I was able to get a New 2018 Black with White Stripes for 5k over

@Biggest for a 2017 anything between 5 and 10 over is a good price but you'll have tough time finding the color you want. Popular color/stripes combo can easily go for 15/20 over. I'm not sure if I would even try to buy a 2018. Being the last production year I'd be surprised to see anything below 20 over sticker. My advice is to be patient and keep calling around all over the country. I got mine at 7 over sticker out of pure luck. Every single dealer that I spoke with before finding mine would not go below 15. All you need is one lucky situation where they are trying to get rid of it

@  panzer69 : (29 January 2018 - 01:15 PM)

yeah i agree with that, my dealer is selling his 60k above

IF YOU FOUND A GT350R AT MSRP ITS PROBABLY ALREADY SOLD TO SOMEONE ELSE .... JUMP ON IT ... DO NOT PAST GO DO NOT COLLECT $200

@  Biggest : (27 January 2018 - 10:10 AM)

Hey Guys, im new to this forum(registered now) Can any of you give me an idea of what a good price for a new 2017 Gt350R is? I have one on hold in New Jersey, Black with white stripe and electronic package, MSRP is $68020, I have not found one at MSRP so my question is whats a good/decient price on a 2017? Thanks

When upgrading to the "R" calipers, do you need to change the rotors as well, or are they the same for all the 350's?  I'm assuming they're the same, but would like to know before I spend the money.

NO ..... the calipers for the R model are identical to your grey calipers and you dont change the rotors ..... only difference is the color which I love. The red calipers stand out so well its a must

 

You use the brake pads from the old calipers and snap and play into the red calipers .... real easy

I got mine at cost plus 10 percent ... employee pricing .... with the caliper bolts and all four calipers I paid around $800 plus tax.

 

On ebay for $1249

 

http://www.ebay.com/...fNXl5S5&vxp=mtr

 

so if you can get your local store to order them for you and have them install them they may give you a reduce cost on the calipers since they are getting the install job

Dang them look SICK!!! I think the Black looks better against my Yellow than the red would. But if the price was right I am sure I would switch to them LOL

Black and Red are probably the top colors to have the R calipers installed.

 

What I would do is search the net and find a Yellow R and see what you think with the Red calipers.  The gray calipers just blend too much with the rotors and wheels and you cant make them out real well
