Brakes!!!

Good night everyone, happy Friday and happy holidays!

I was browsing around in other posts but I don't want to do anything crazy, so is there an easy(not sure if easy is the right word) not super expensive way to give a little boost on the brakes?


Has anyone done it? If so, how much it cost? Any regrets?

I already have 20x9 inch wheels.

I was very happy after I put the slotted and dimpled front rotors and the included pads from Brake Performance on my '10 R/T. I mainly did it to cure the never ending warping rotors, but the improved braking was a bonus. No more warping in the last 18 months I had it.



Now I have the Brembo Dynamics Package brakes on my new car, and if anything, I would like the brakes to be a little less grabby than they are now. But stopping in a hurry is great.

What year is your car, and how much do you want to spend?
The Power Stop parts are excellent - had them on my 2010 and also on my C6 Corvette. But you can do more with bigger calipers and rotors if that's in your budget.

Ended up ordering from Summit Racing. They have $20 off $200 and PowerStop has a $30 rebate until May 31. Total with tax will end up at $330. I installed them this past weekend. They feel better than stock. I'm happy so far.
