Question BRAKES front & rear

After I put much heavier rims on the car. What should I do about the rear and front discs?

Should I go w/ slotted or cross drilled? I dont notice any price difference.

I'm finding 10.3, 10.5, & 10.8 inch discs. What should I be going with or does it matter? Is OEM 10.3, the reason I ask is because all the bk pads say what size they are compatible with (10.3, etc.)

Re: BRAKES front & rear

the best thing to do would be to upgrade the front to cobra brakes, the calipers are about 200 bucks and the rotors are about 200 as well. So for 400 bucks you can make a huge difference overall. For the rear leave them as is for now but if you want to do them later you can buy a new bracket to make the cailper fit on a larger rotor. You will need 17 inch rims to upgrade to any decent brake sets.
