Default Honda Brakes

Well Hi ya'll it's me AsiaAnne again and I was wondering~We all know I love
my 1997 Honda Accord but I have been in 5 accidents since I moved here and
the people do drive like idiots pulling in front of me basically and I can't
stop in time but I have 18" chrome wheels and I have low profile Perellis on
her so should I invest in some "Green Stuff" brake pads or do you have any
suggestions on the best brakes a Honda like mine can have? I know the tires
have something to do with it but they are very expensive tires so there has
got to be some sort of stuff I can get to atleast TRY to stop better~Thanx

If you have had five "accidents," it might be better to invest in a
course of defensive driving...

My suggestion is that perhaps you should slow down and drive defensively.
You appear to be unfit for being in control of a moving vehicle.

If you have been in 5 accidents already you don't need new or better brakes
, you need to stop driving or maybe glasses !

I have just the product for you. It's called Windex. Get some, wash your
windshield with it, throw your cell phone in the trash, and your problem
should be solved.

Aside from the obvious - slowing down - I'll bet you still have the standard
size (front) brakes.

Green Stuff pads, drilled and/or slotted rotors are not the solution, as all
these do is attempt to make a barely adequate system work more efficiently
at a higher heat level.

Better brakes come from greater surface area and heat dissipation capability
ie bigger diameter and sometimes thicker rotors. Larger brake pads means
different, preferably twin pot, calipers. For example, if your brakes are
260x25mm, put in a 275x25 or 300x28mm rotors. Thicker rotors need suitable
calipers.

If your Accord is a 4 cyl, check if the V6 model has bigger brakes. Its not
difficult (just expensive) to adapt brakes from another vehicle to your
Accord. Some machining of adapters will be required, and you may have to
change the master cylinder (bigger diameter) to support the new calipers.
If you have lots of money, look into a Brembo solution.

You will also likely need to adjust the front rear brake balance. The
simplest way to start is to put softer pads on the rear.

www.pixcl.com/lancerproject discusses brake updates for Mitsubishi vehicles,
but the principle is the same for Hondas.
