    First off, I'm new here so Hello. I have a 98 V6 and I need to replace the rotors and pads. I'm running 17s off a 96 cobra. I have already decided to upgrade the front to 13" rotors and new calipers. My question is, should I bother to increase the rear rotors to 11.65" or just get direct replacements for stock? Is the extra money required for new calipers in the rear worth it? Thanks.

    I don't think that it will make much difference to have a slightly larger caliper on back and it still won't look big, so I say get the 13's for the front and just replace the rotors and pads on the back. Just my opinion.

    I say go big brakes all around. I think it would look better. :nice:
    Not to mention, I would think the bigger brakes in front would make the nose dive under harder braking, just a thought.
