Wilwood Brakes Unveils New GM Series Brake Kits

August 2015 Products Trevor Mason Web Exclusive

Wilwood Disc Brakes, one of the nation’s top brake manufacturers, has announced new front and rear brake kits for GM trucks and SUVs in the 1999-2015 model years. The TX6R Tactical Xtreme features forged aluminum calipers that will upgrade your disc brakes to 15-16” on any heavy duty General Motors vehicle and can handle up to 14,000 GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating). These kits are designed for both off-road and highway use, offer easy bolt-on installation inside compatible wheels, and are fully compatible with your truck’s original equipment. 

“Too often owners of heavy duty trucks upgrade to over-sized wheels and tires without compensating for the increased spinning mass,” said Doug Burke, Senior Vice President for Wilwood Engineering.“That’s especially important to consider when towing. Wilwood’s new Tactical Xtreme TX6R big brake kits are the pinnacle in braking performance, providing unmatched stopping power no matter what you plan to haul. And their great looks are an added bonus.”

The kit also features Wilwood’s fade-resistant BP20 SmartPads, combined with large diameter Spec37 directional vane GT slotted rotors, which work together with the superior response from the high-capacity calipers to give you unparalleled cooling, durability and stopping power. The calipers are available in three color options: gloss black or red powder coat or a clear anodized finish. MSRP on the kit is $2,127.94.
