Re: Upgrade Clio 3 Breaks?

I have always used the APEC brand without any problems and have found them reasonably priced and effective.

Brakes convert energy into heat and it is the rate of disapation of this heat that ultimately decides braking efficiency. Primarily it is the design of the braking system that is the over-riding factor so by changing only one aspect you are unlikely to make any massive gains. Also the tyre contact with the road will also affect efficiency.

Ultimately good regular maintenance and inspection is the best thing you can do and don't wait until something wears out or fails.
