Hello Isugymrat24,Actually 235/55r18 is almost exactly 28” diameter and has a much better tire selection than 245/55r18 which is 28.6” diameter.
I’m very worried about the ride quality if i go that route, but it would allow for larger brakes.
so the three options are...
Hello Isugymrat24,Good info and questions.
While Others have said to go as big as possible, I feel no huge need for 6piston big brakes..
I have read that single piston calipers cause pad taper so I’m thinking the 4piston setups would be nice.
I provided data previously where others have claimed to stand monster trucks on their noses with small 4piston setups so they’re plenty powerful enough and should keep even pad wear as a plus.
I have read that the 6piston setups are 100+ Degrees cooler when stopping from 60mph. That sounds like a benefit but Does that matter for a putt around town convertible? Most likely not. If I were doing some autocross that might be a different story.
The 6piston calipers do look cool but the lower cost 4piston setup is probably good enough. And the wilwood setup still looks nice in either option
