Default Compatible BBK w/ stock wheels on an '08 350?

I was wondering what would be a good BBK that would work with stock wheels on a 2008 gs350? Anyone have experience with a BBK that clear the stock 17's, and which brand works best? Or would it be wiser to stick to same size rotors and pads, and just use better quality? I feel like the brakes aren't as tight compared to my previous cars. They do stop the car, but I feel I have to press harder than I normally used to compared to my previous cars...and I have checked the pads and there is plenty of life left on them. Thanks!

Your 350 already has 4 piston calipers on it, or it should at least. Perhaps you have a brake line leak, or change to more aggressive pads and rotors combo. I have a 4 piston gs350 on my GS300. Love the upgrade. So essentially running what you have stock!

Don't yell at me! Lol jk. The brakes are good. I actually had to get used to them as coming from my previous car those brakes were quicker to grab based off pedal feel, but I've since come to appreciate the stock set up. As far as pads go, I'll probably upgrade those when it's time to replace them
