Do you have aftermarket wheels?: Yes

If yes, post size, width, and offset: 19" Work Euroline LS

Was it a perfect fit without any modfication?: spacer for the fronts

Post fitment issues if you had any including your solution: rubbing, I'm lowered on H&R sports with Koni adjustables and running 235/35/19 BFGOOD KDW2's..originally had the same size Toyo Proxes but had to do more trimming after putting on the bfgoods. Had to roll the fenders for the toyos. Upgraded the rotora pads to some custom porterfield r4s which seemed to be too aggressive for the rotors as I experienced warping. Went back to rotora pads and got new rotors but had them cryogenically treated (frozenrotors.com) so far so good. I can run this set up with the stock wheels and my spacers with no problem as I do all winter

and endless pads...finally, i have motul 600 racing brake fluid replacing the stock fluid...H&R makes a 5mm and 15mm spacer kit depending on your wheels...if you run a big brake kit you most likely will have to use one because there is no way these calipers could ever fit behind stock wheels...my wheels are a +49 offset and i need them...

if any of you dont have enough money to upgrade your front rotors to brembo or rotora...the 2 piston calipers on the tL are very strong if you change out the pads and rotors...dont buy the one piece rotors for the TL, KVR now offers a two piece 12" rotor that is supposed to kick ass, they are like 700$...along w/stainless steel brake lines and high temp racing brake fluid, these 2 piece rotors will help your braking out substantially...Shyne

You mean power brakes? If that is what you mean then all ABS equipped cars have "power assist" already added and there is nothing further to be done to improve the braking system.

Now if by chance your referring to the latest cruise control that keeps a certain distance between cars or the one that automatically brakes if your approaching too fast...well I would not trust ANY addon device that attaches to my brake system.
