    Question Rear Breaks

    Hi all


    I was wondering is it possible to upgrade ya rear breaks aswell as front so you could have 308mm disks all round or 308mm on front and 284mm backs (not sure if that 284mm is correct)? also would it be as simple to do as the front?

    Cheers

    It's not a very advisablething to do.

    The discs are smaller on the back for a reason. Change them and you could well find yourself in a hedge.

    nope the front wont work on the back as the rear one are used for the hand brake
    the std rear one set up works fine
    if you want to upgrade the front brakes with up rated disc's an pads

    The guys above are right - even on a McLaren SLR the rear brakes are almost the same as the standard AMG SLK (when the fronts are carbon ceramic)
