Brake Upgrade

I have a 99 coupe that now has aftermarket wheels 285x19 rear and 245x18 front. I put Baer Eradispeed plus 2's (I believe they are plus 2 - like a 14 inch rear rotor and like a 13.25 front rotor-something close to that) on my car with a set of Hawk Brake Pads and the thing looks amazing and stops so hard that you eye balls almost come out of your head. Baer makes great stuff! I recommend them and I have put about 6,000 miles on my set and no issues at all.

Enjoy!!

I personally have stayed away from the drilled rotors. I'll admit they look cool but if they are going to crack that is where they're going to do it. If you are planning on tracking the car to where your going to get some big heat into the rotors you absolutely don't want the holes. Slotted only!! I have 14" Brembos in front and 13.5 in the rear (slotted only) with 18" rims on front and 19" rears. If I do say so myself it looks bad ass and the performance is ridiculous. I have tracked my car many times and worked them to a nice glow. I have never had a rotor problem. I will end with one last thought. Brembos aren't cheap!
