I think brembo makes an 8 piston upgrade for the fronts. ...but for like $4300.
Just get the brembo sport rotors in either drilled or slotted and some high performance pads.
They don't. They are coated, but after 100 miles or so the contact patch will be shiny silver just like any other rotor.

Re: Larger Rotors? Wilwood?

If u order the brembo rotors, they might take awhile to get to you, just a heads up I ordered my cross drilled rotors from the tire rack over 40 days ago, probably closer to 50, and they still haven't shipped.

Not to sure what the hold up is, They have been on back order since I ordered, I was told originally told that it would be a two week wait... But still nothing.

Block ops have brembo in slotted or drilled for the WK2 why you didn't order it from them? Theey have a better customer service and many members here are dealing with him.

Lol, didn't really know about them back then when I ordered, but it's good to know for the future.

Cheers mate.

Re: Larger Rotors? Wilwood?

I'm the one that's changing out my crap R1 rotors for Brembo. Everywhere in the country is back ordered waiting on Brembo Italy to manufacture the front rotors. You will find many places that say in stock, but I assure you NO ONE has the front rotors in stock. They were slated to start shipping to the states from Brembo Italy in early Jan and now have been pushed back again until March or so.

Re: Larger Rotors? Wilwood?

I have done a tone of research and I am with Scott. Brembo is the ONLY way to go. All the others are crap. I personally do not love the gold color Brembos come with. I would prefer black my self. I am going to have them powder coated or possibly heat transfer coated (Check the link below). But anyone who wants Brembos, they are on national back order!

Automotive To Industrial And Anything In Between

Re: Larger Rotors? Wilwood?

Just got off the phone with CarId and the fronts are available but the rears are on back order. The estimated ship date they got from brembo is the 16th of February. Now if you go on eBay CarId has a listing for the rears but they said that is a mistake and they are going to update the listing as it should be for the fronts.

Scratch that... The guy I spoke to at CarId is incorrect. The fronts are on back order. Not the rears

Re: Larger Rotors? Wilwood?

I had the first set in the USA on my 2013...waited like 12 weeks for the rears. It will be worth it though
