brake question

ok so i need new brakes on my 4th with h23, and from my research on here its obvious i should go with anything but drilled rotors lol, but any particular setups that would be best? im going for good looks as well as a little better stopping power as i wil gradually be building my engine up.

also i have 17" rims so what size could i get away with without spacers or anythings like that

thanks for the help, and for those who kinda know that my situation im just droppping h22 and doing a n/a build for now since its my dd

Re: brake question

standard brembo discs with pagid or ferodo ds2500 brake pads should be ideal..realistically you need to give a bit more detail as to exactly what your planning to do with the car..you might also want to look at getting SS braided brake lines and uprate ur brake fluid from dot 3 to dot 4 or 5 if your going to bu putting down some power because dot 3 seems to heat up very quickly if you drive the car hard.

Re: brake question

Si came with smaller brakes right? Upgrading to VTEC rotors/calipers/etc. would be a good start. Then just say some Bremo blanks and decent pads. If you want larger than 282mm, then you start with kits that relocate the stock callipers at one end and a full big brake kit at the other. Also need to keep in mind front/rear bias if you want them to be effective.

Calliper clearance without spacers depends a lot on the design of a particular wheel. Could have the same size and offset with two wheels and one would clear whilst the other wouldn't.

Re: brake question

i really dont need anything special as it is my dd and its more of a show car than anything else, i do kinda drive it hard but i dont go to the track and i dont really go over 60 to much as im in a city setting.

i dont care really about size just looks and upgraded stopping power thats worth the money. nothing extravagant

Re: brake question

Going back to stock and either polishing or painting your calipers seems best for your needs. You don't need the extra stopping power and you get to keep the front / rear bias to ensure proper safety. As a opinion on caliper color, I would say red with black Honda emblems would look pretty awesome on your whip.

Re: brake question

I actually never get drilled, i get slotted. From stop sign to sign your brakes arent going to be too hot. Drilled is just to keep it cooled( incase you didnt know, which you probably did) I get slotted thats all. Good luck on your decision btw.
