Those look much better. Gives it a more sporty look. Your old ones looked like mud tires:).

I agree. OEM brake package leaves a lot to be desired!!

Hi, GXP

Did you also with switch to Nitto Invo on the fronts too? And are you running 19 X 9 1/2 wheels w/275s tires on front too? Very beautiful wheels, and enjoy watching the mods.

Only for those that buy brakes for appearance, not performance.....;)
Dunno, looks really weird when I see big wheels and tiny OEM brakes. Surprised JCWhitney has come out w/hub covers. Tried Googling but all that came up were imitation brake covers.

The stock brakes are adequate for any normal use (although the pad material needs changing for anything other than puttering around).

Big wheels, over around 16" are just a styling phenomenon aimed at selling cars. You can tell how well that works by the people here wanting to go as large as 20" because it 'looks cool' notwithstanding the fact that it has a negative effect on braking performance. Stick large enough wheels on something and just about any brake will look small in comparison.

I had Nitto Invos before the Sumitomo HTR ZIIIs I have now. They were a good tire, but didn't last very long. Considering what the Invos cost me and the mileage I got out of them, I probably wouldn't buy them again.
