Dont kill me, I really have been searching for this answer. I want to upgrade the size of my front brakes but I don't want to need to run huge rims. Id like to keep my stock chrome 17s. The two popular upgrades ive seen are LS and Supra. I dont need all out performance just a bump up from stock.
I do like the idea of bigger rotors. More leverage, cooler braking temps, more pad surface, longer pad life, more control during braking. I guess the only downside is more rotating and unsprung weight. But there are more pros than cons.
If my only reasonable option is to run Hawk HPS pads then so be it. But bigger rotors would be a nice benefit.
