Those look like carbon ceramic rotors. Must have cost a fortune! But looks great and surely must work great too.
Was the brake master cylinder modified also? If so, mind sharing?

I haven't made any master cylinder changes. It seems to work fine with the set-up. I know the later model C4 ZR-1s had a slightly larger piston in the master cylinder. I may upgrade at some point just to see. Car performs great. I made buddy nauseous standing on the brakes from a 25-0 test

I have the C6 Z06 brakes all around mine. Its a 92 and absolutely no issues w the master being inadequate. When u have this level of braking power, I have rarely if ever needed to stand on them. If anything I end up stopping sooner than I thought I would.

What had to be done to mount the rotors? Adapter to the OEM knuckle mounting points?

looks like the the front wheels are convex and rear concave (centers)

also so what size wheel tire combo are you running?

Due to the size of those calipers and the wheel offset required to fit over them, there's not enough room for much more than a 1" lip on the front wheels.

I used the adapters for the C6 Z06 kit but the calipers had to be milled to allow the adapter to lay flat against it. The front wheels are shallow concave and the rears are deep. Tires are 275/30/19 front and 325/30/19 rear

I don't plan on giving any wheels specs because if you're going to order a custom wheel for your car you would be wise to take your own measurements. The car has Callaway coilovers and the ride height has been adjusted
