Looks like that's what I'm going to do.

Jared- thanks for the link bra. Interesting reading and in line with my thinking.

FWIW,

18" wheels could be fit with up to 14.25" rotor kits. The value of such a BBK will be diminished slightly however as you'd do well to have more rotor than this.

There are plans on file for a rear kit to match the front if anyone wants to do so. A rear kit is a real plus for towing apps where rear weight is a greater issue.

sorry for bringing up an old thread but did the front brakes change for the 2009 F350? Brake Pros has a listing for big brakes that fit 2005-2008.

I would have thought 2008 and 2009 would be the same and if anything would not fit 2007 and older!

Applications for AP5200R / AP5200 Front Big Brake Kits:
• 2005-2008 Ford F250 Super Duty 4WD
• 2005-2008 Ford F350 Super Duty 4WD
• Matching Rear Rotors also available - Part# FOR5850XS

RBF600 is Dot 4, while the Super Duty line calls for Dot 3. Please advise.

I just cant justify reselling my wheels and tires at a loss just to buy another set.

Something to look at to put inside your 18's....I have no idea how good these are, and zero experience with the company or their products, just did a search and they showed up. Maybe worth researching more...

Nope. Only sold the fronts thus far.

Super Duty - Kits

Found a site that sells the wilwoods.



I realize that the sweep is important. Has anyone tried these?

SSBC A193-2 Front Quick Change Caliper Kit For 05-08 Ford F250/F350

It uses the stock rotor size but switches from the standard piston to a 6 piston. I havent seen my truck yet. i am not sure what a stock truck runs for piston count. I wouldnt be surprised if it was a single piston.

What's important is the centerline of the swept area (diameter), the coefficient of friction of the brake material, and the clamping force (total piston area). With opposing piston calipers, use only half of the pistons (one side for the calculations.

You might be surprised.

Here's the calc's. So the Wildwood calipers need to be using a higher COF friction materiel, a larger swept radius, or a combination of both.
