Bigger Rear Disc Brakes

Anyone installed some larger sized rear discs? The front factorys are larger than the rear. A noticable difference to me. Has anyone found a kit or other solution?

The rear bakes have to be smaller 'cause they do less work than the front. If they were the same size the rear would lock up/trigger ABS prematurely in relation to the front and you'd get less overall braking effectiveness than with the OEM brakes. Not exactly a performance enhancement...

You want bigger rear discs, you'll need yet bigger front discs...

Exactly ! I've never seen a car with same size front/rear brakes .
