    How did stock tires contribute to a "blown caliper"? Besides, you can't brake too hard because you have anti-lock brakes.

    Talking Brakes

    Not trying to start an argument with you. But your caliper dieing is because of your caliper dieing. Not your ďslightlyĒ more heavy tires. Plenty of people run 37s or more with stock brakes and the calipers are just fine.
    If youíre just trying to justify reasons to buy an upgrade then yeah it was totally that and you totally need to upgrade, itís super unsafe if you donít and youíre irresponsible and putting yours and others lives at risk so you better go get them now. Plus you said you made up your mind anyways.
    Talking about upgrades in the near future should include adequate size wheels and backspacing and then your question is answered correctly. In case you donít know Jeep tires are generally cheaper for 17Ē than 16 anyways.
    Unless you scraped the shit out of your rotors you can throw another set of pads at it for the same price as a pack of beer until you start the bigger upgrades which youíll actually want the bbk, so youíre really not wasting money by buying brakes ďjust to take off againĒ

    I think when you jeep all the way from 810 down to 207, you need bigger brakes to go down that many numbers.

    Is this an area code joke that only you get? Or is that your expected 60-0 stopping distance?

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
