Do bigger rotors stop better?
Likewise, people ask, are thicker rotors better?
Thicker fins allows the manufacturer to produce a less expensive rotor because the surface that does all the stopping, the machined surfaces, can be made thinner but the replacement will still have the same discard thickness as the OE rotor even though the life expectancy can be severely shortened.
Beside above, can I put bigger rotors on my car? The point of having larger rotors is to have larger calipers to hold larger brake pads for more braking power. Just installing larger rotors won't do anything for performance and you may have clearance issues with the smaller caliper brackets, not to mention out of spec rotor wear that might cause braking issues.
Just so, do bigger brakes stop a car faster?
A big brake kit will not increase the stopping power of a vehicle or decrease its stopping distance due to the physics involved. A larger brake pad will only spread out the clamping force of the brake caliper over a greater area.
Why are my front rotors so big?
The front rotor is bigger because you CAN brake more with the front before losing traction. The rear rotor is smaller because a whole lot of extra braking force is just going to make the wheel lock up anyway, so a bigger rotor would just be a waste.
