Any ideas, what's better,

10.9 rotor with Mustang GT caliper, and 205-65-15 tires

or

11.6 rotor with the stock caliper and 215-55-16 tires

If they're about the same in terms of performance, it seems like Mustang GT caliper upgrade is a fine cheap mod for non-SHO gen-3 people. Otherwise, we need to buy new 16 inch rims.

I find the 11.6 upgrade to be better over the 10.9 upgrade. Lots of SHO people use the 11.6 setup on the track and good pretty good. I have seen the 10.9 setup fail on the track.

Also the 11.6 is simply more mass to absorb more heat and dissipate it. Meaning less potential brake fade.
