Do you know of anybody that died from their brakes fu*king up because they had big wheels on their car?
no but i know of people who died because their brakes failed...which is what having big rims can do because it causes them to wear quicker. And if the pad is the size to stop a 16 in steel rim its not gonna be able to stop in the same amount of time if u got big chrome rims that weigh more on ur car.
Im not going at big rims at all..sh*t I got them on my car...Im just saying upgrading your brakes is a smart thing to do even if you've never had problems.
Edit:And I had my rims on when I got in my accident and dude slamed on the brakes in front of me. And to tell u the truth it took me longer to get stopped because of the rims and it is why I hit him in the back. I dont have upgraded brakes because they dont make them for my car unless its custom but I've been wanting to do it just because its safer
When ur brakes fail your brakes fail...I know people whos brakes have failed because of larger rims it was just that they were not in a place that could of caused death. But any car accident can cause death...but u know that already...
