If I upgrade my wheels, do I have to upgrade my brakes?

Upgrade Your Wheels, Upgrade Your Brakes

So you think you are ready to upgrade to some fatty dubs? Not so fast. When you replace your wheels with something much larger you are increasing your rotational mass which makes it harder to stop, therefore putting more stress on your factory brake system.

You are probably going to need to upgrade your system so it can take on that extra stress and maintain your ability to stop on a dime, no matter how cool you look. So remember, when you are rolling with dubs, beef up your stopping power.
