    What do I need to upgrade my front brakes to Tundra brakes? Just Tundra rotors, calipers, and pads? Tacoma's are not equipped with the strongest brakes. I know there is a few threads on this but I'm having trouble locating them. Any links, part #s, etc.. would be a great help.

    Does you bolt pattern and hub diameter match a tundra? Can your current wheels clear the tundra rotor?

    I have 16" wheels, so I don't see why they wouldn't clear, that's what the Tundra's come with

    I know tacomas and 4runners are nearly identical in this department. The only clearance issues us 4runner guys encounter is the caliper hitting the dust shield (simple trimming) and the caliper rubbing on the wheels (It depends on the wheel, spacers solve the problem if there's rubbing)

    I currently have the 231mm 13WL tundra brakes and they are just awesome.

    That's not bad, I might see if I can find some decent rotors and calipers at the junk yard and buy the rest new.
