I've really enjoyed the summer rollin' on my new 22" Dvinci's and 305 45 22 Hankooks. With winter aproaching, I decided to put the original 17's on with Bridgestone Dueller A/T Revo's. I am trying to do a BRAKE UPGRADE for summers with the 22's but I still need the 17's to fit on. Can anyone suggest a rotor/ caliper combo that will be an improvement over stock to work with the 17's. Any info on what to use or where to call will be greatly appreciated.

So far, all that I found that will work with the 17's are pads and rotors from EBC.Has anyone else improved the brakes using the stock wheels?

I think the stock rotor size is 12"...? I upgraded to 14" and the stocks won't fit over the rotors anymore. However, I left the stock calipers on my new rotors to save space because of the airbags. It all comes down to which wheels will be used more... the 17's or the 22's? I suggest just leaving the stock rotors on.

Hey thanks, but it's not a question of what I will use more (17's or 22's) because ultimately I am at some point going to be using BOTH. Summer=22's and winter=17's. So I am trying to increase the braking system over stock to still fit over my 17's for when I have the 22's on.

It seems that T Byrne has an upgrade to 14" rotors that need 18" wheels or bigger. Does anyone know if 13" rotors will fit in a 17" wheel and who sells them??? I'm quite certain that the stock fronts are 12"
