    I meant I NEED New Brakes ...

    2008 SR5 here. My brakes are gone, history. Almost crashed yesterday.

    Would like to upgrade to something better than stock.

    I don't mind spending for the best.

    Recommendations?

    Several companies offer big brake kits, keep in mind you will need a minimum 20" wheel.

    I wonder what the stopping distance over stock is knowing that you can’t brake faster than what the ABS can do.

    Dunno. But the real value of BBK's is their ability to absorb and shed heat more effectively, allowing your brakes to continue working well after sustained abuse.


    ...So I would like to see stopping distance comparisons before and after DOZENS of emergency braking applications

    I’m sure you’d see the biggest difference when towing or hauling heavy loads

    According to Wilwood you need minimum 18" wheels.
