There is a box on the front page for the RV-10 wheels and brakes. If you have any questions, give them a call. George is more than willing to talk with folks and explain their offerings. Do allow some time to get them. They are built to order. It took about a month to get mine.
I don't recall the exact price, but I believe they were around $900 for the pair. Of course, since I upgraded during my condition inspection and my four year old tires were shot, so I also bought new tires and tubes. This bumped the total cost to about $1,500.
They are no big deal to install. You will have to drill new cotter pin holes in the axle. Also, I would purchase one size longer bolts than they specify in the manual. You also need to purchase their spacers, which are on their site, but they don't highlight that very well.
Your wheel pants will get shifted inward about 1/8" to clear the brake AN fitting. They do supply these washers. Otherwise you have to modify the wheel fairing bracket. I went with the washers.
BTW, Geoff installed them several years ago too.
I can tell you that they are much more effective than the Cleveland brakes.
