    Upgrade front brake, need hubs change?

    Hi all

    I got a prelude si 1997 which have 260mm rotor and 4x114.3 PCD.

    I just want to upgrade to bigger brake (prelude 94 vtir 292mm rotor and keep 4x114 pcd)

    But do i need to get the capiler, rotor and the hubs or i only need the rotor and capiler without changing the whole front hubs and whole metal thing?

    282mm not 292, you dont need to change the hub just need to cut a small corner off the metal shield to accommodate the bigger caliper and possibly bent it a bit to avoid rubbing with the rotor.

    You may already know. But just to point it out, you will be needing the 4th gen Vtir rotors, not the 5th gen ones. Due to the 4x114.3 PCD.
    Calipers can come from either the 4th or 5th gen.

    Which bracket?
    The caliper is everything fitted to the hub. You need the whole caliper.
