    Braided Brake Hoses

    Ok so i have all disc and pads now to upgrade all the brakes but still in two minds weather or not to get braided hoses aswell.

    A mate of mine has said its not really worth upgrading them unless you going for a big brake upgrade such as a 4 pot conversion.

    So is it really worth the extra money to upgrade them? Has anyone else fitted them with standard size disc and pads felt it was worth the extra money?

    Slap your mate as he's talking cod

    Braided hoses don't balloon under pressure like rubber ones so more of the force you put on at the pedal end get transferred to the caliper piston. Granted that may not be much difference on new hoses but on older ones it can be quite significant.

    Also as braided hoses are metal, they do help in transferring heat away from the caliper/pad, and thus help to control brake fluid temp. Again its only a small benefit, but it might make the difference between stopping and not stopping one day

    Try camskill.co.uk for some very good prices on these. Was tempted myself but other things to sort first.
