NEW TO ALL THINGS NISSAN
I have now reached that time when I am interested in upgrading the crappy GTS 4-stud hubs and tiny brakes, in order to fit my 17" Manaray wheels..
The thing I'am unsure about is :- GTS-T 5-STUD HUBS will go straight on, but should I want even bigger brakes than the standard GTS-T brakes.. Do I need matching callipers and discs or will up-rated brake calipers work fine with standard GTS-T discs ??
I know the GTS-T brakes will be incredible compared to the sh**ty GTS ones but I'am thinking if I further upgraded the brakes to say : 'Brembro' for eg/ then I'll have all the stopping power I need at the ready, for when I swap out my GTS lump for a 440 bhp (Approx) GTS-T single turbo lump etc..
I'am really unsure of the best brakes to go for, all I know is I want them to be as big as possible to fit inside my 17" Manaray wheels..
I don't know the widths & fitting etc of my wheels but the numbers on the tyre's read :- EJKA ccE050Z
^ (The only thing I get from those numbers is Radius 17" ...I have no idea what the other numbers etc mean..) But guess they could be useful when trying to work out what the biggest brakes are that will fit within my 17" Manarays !?
How should I tackle this ???
At the moment I still have 4-stud GTS hubs and crappy 17" erroded chrome vaults so the swap over cant happen quick enough !! - Martin.
