Is constant braking required for "chasing apex's"?

I have a 2014 Limited and I'd do the SRT Brembo swap but it seems to add wheel complications. I don't mind getting the SRT rep wheels, but the tires I'd want aren't run flats and a spare rep wheel/tire wont fit in the spare tire well (I think I read the cover wont close fully?) and also I'd just like to be able to use my 18 and 20 inch wheels/tires..

If there was a Mopar Brembo kit designed for the WK2 would be ideal even if it's not in the SRT league. I could use my existing wheels/tires, stop on a dime and have cool looking calipers too. Anyone??

Scott , Just to confirm , If I got the Brembo P/N's that you already list , and keep me OEM 20'' wheels , will have an interference ? What if I just add a wheel spacer how much I need .

Thx a lot

Yes...if you add the brembos from the Jeep SRT and install your oem wheels....you will have interference....the wheel will not even go on. As far as spacers.,....me personally....I would never add spacers....but I have no idea. Youd have to play around with them.....probably 2-3" and that's a guess.
