Do the ATS Brembos clear 17s?
this is the beginning of a very expensive habit that there is no 12 step program for. I remember the same feeling back in 2003 when I put the black deep dish bullits on mine and it didn't help that the very first time I parked it with the new wheels a dude complimented the car for the first time in years. After nearly 10 years with them I decided to upgrade and found the ones I have now. I am afraid to know what I might justify spending on the next set.I giggled like a little kid on Christmas morning when I saw them back it out of the bay. I just turned 53, I've owned 30-odd cars over the years, and this is the very first set of custom wheels I've ever bought.
A little bit more to it....A larger rotor allows for more pad sweep area which increases braking performance. It also helps with heat dissipation. I still suggest going to cobra brakes if you haven’t already.
Ah that’s the word I was trying to think of, leverage. Much better explanation than mine.A little bit more to it....
A larger diameter rotor will allow more "leverage" on the wheel when braking.
If you look at brake rotors over the years, they have all gotten to a larger diameter. Even the base models.
