Braking news people (see what I did there?) my new PB Brakes are fitted, working, and they are seriously awesome. Also, fitting took less time than it takes our Lee to do his hair. Which is 1-hour 58-minutes if you were wondering…
As mods go, the fitment went like clockwork. Nothing snapped or sheered off during the removal process, and everything in the kit fitted perfectly.
Even the monster 6-pot calipers that I thought might catch on the inside of my 16-inch wheels had mm perfect clearance, exactly as Dan Newton, head honcho of PB Brakes promised.
As a kit I can’t recommend it highly enough. The large 304mm FC250 iron alloy vented brake rotors dissipate the heat perfectly, whilst the combo of 6-pot aluminium calipers and high performance fast road pads have pretty much halved my stopping distance. In fact, they have already saved me from a near front on collision on the way to work (that wasn’t my fault, may I add). So they’ve definitely passed the test!
What I love about PB Brakes is not just the performance, but their range, as they tailor 8 different sizes of caliper so they suit each size of rotor. Impressive stuff really, as a lot of higher priced brands only offer two or three sizes.
Also, with 18 different anodized and 14 powder coated colours to chose from they look great as well. There’s even the option of adding your own logo design to the caliper (for a small extra cost). So you can look good stopping too! And the price? Well you can’t really argue with that!
