Wilwood Brake Kit?

I was looking at this kit and wondering if anyone had any experience with it.


Thanks in advance.

heard there pretty much pointless, from what i understood they were small, better off getting good pads and brake fluid, or spend a bit more and get stoptechs :D

The only tricky part of stoptech's i've seen is that they have open piston design so you can't use them in the winter.. I don't know if they have since sealed up the pistons though for the newer cars.. Just something to consider but StopTech's are the bomb

I am just a bit confused. They are pointless because they are small? Small rotors?

Our brakes are VERY effective for a stock brake kit.. they just need better pads.. but they are already very large and you're buying calipers/rotors that are marginally better. (see not worth the $$) but if you go Wilwood, they are much better (larger/stronger) calipers and really good material as well.. basically you're better off getting good rotors, good pads and good fluid with stock calipers and stock sized rotors.. less $ and equal performance basically.

Nope, if you buy the Wilwoods in the first post, they are marginally better than better pads/rotors/fluid on OEM calipers/size.

STOPTECH however is a real big brake kit (Like Brembo etc)
