Since the 3 piece wheels weigh a lot less, could you get away with keeping the stock brakes, on like 26"? Cause isnt it the weight that makes it harder to stop, not the size of the wheel right?

coming from someone who has 26" 3 piece wheels on his truck. And previously owned 24" 3 piece wheels. 3 piece wheels are a lot lighter than 1 piece but essentially you still need new brakes. My brakes are upgraded to the same size but rotora slotted. and they basically suck. stopping is a task, and my brakes squeek constantly. I'm saving money now to buy 18" big brakes from rotora and hopefully can get those within the next month.
