    Brakes

    Honda says Im going to need new brakes before my next oil change.

    Should I just have them put new factory brakes on, or should I go aftermarket?

    The reason Im thinking of aftermarket is because I will have an extra 300-400 lbs in the trunk that were not there before. I only need new front brakes. If I should go aftermarket, can anyone suggest brakes?



    Best receiver ever?
    I think so

    Just go to auto zone and pick up some semi-metalic and do it yourself. Make sure you turn those rotors though.

    Re: Brakes

    Will that be fine though?

    The car will have 400lbs plus me which is an extra 600 lbs at all time, and that weight can only go up because of batteries.

    Re: Brakes

    You could always spend the extra cash for a big break upgrade. The extra 400lbs would, be as if you had your car fully loaded with people all the time. It WILL take longer to stop but not enough to worry you. Just take the extra time to stop. Also auto-zone should have a better set of break pads to help you stop. Take it easy and you will be fine.

    dont go big break kit, buy new rotors slotted and a harder pad and upgrade to stainless steal lines and upgrade the fluid and you should be fine and it would cost you too much to do

    Re: Brakes

    dont go to a pad thats too much firmer if you go wtih slotted rotors. most of the superhard pads need to be heated to very high temps to be effective. plus theyll screw up the rotors. my friend's powerslot rotors got screwd b/c he ran the superduty pads on just a 1/2 ton pickup

    powerslot rotors, better than average pads, and stainless lines will be enough

    i run those rotors with their street pads and its a GREAT improvement. i have heavy 35 inch mud tires & heavy *** rims, it stops much better than a stock truck

    Re: Brakes

    go with larger rotors, such as wildwood rotors, and a nice pad like EBC.....you'll be set, even if you go with performance upgrades in the future.
