Disks and pads on my 147

Do i need to change the back ones if i change the front ones?

I.e. If i uprate the front disks and pads will that affect the back ones at all?

Any reccomendations?

Thanks for your time.

Re: Disks and pads on my 147

On a FWD car very little braking is done at the back.
You want to fit a lower friction pad on the back than the front.
You also need to make sure that both the front & rear pads are in harmony; you don't want the rear pads to start working before the fronts.
Ferodo DS2500 front with DS-Performance rear is a perfect setup.
