2017 sport brakes

ive seen it thrown around that the 2017 accord sport will come with 12.2" rotors. anyone able to confirm this? if so anyone looked into cross compatibility of calipers/rotors/brackets w our 7g dinosaurs?

The only braking system that I would put on a 7th Gen in 2016 is the Stoptech system. Or if you are on a budget, the Advics RL calipers with some nice 328x28 2 piece rotors. I would not put a 2017 Accord system on a 7th Gen when there is better out.

You don't live anywhere that it snows do you? ppl like me who have winter tires on the stock 17" wheels have that to consider. And if the legend dual piston caliper with coupe rotors on a sedan is considered an upgrade why wouldn't a 2017 sport rotor be?

Could always go with the crv caliper upgrade. Benefits of equal diameter dual pistons and use the rotors from the tsx/6-6 coupe. No need to flip for bleeding like the legend calipers.

We get a 1-2 foot snowfall just about every year where I am. The RL Caliper should fit a 17 wheel. The 2017 system sounds like an upgrade over the stock 7th gen, but I would not use a factory system, unless the calipers were of aftermarket quality. But that is just me.

Need to find a source on this, sounds like a currently available and viable upgrade. Although as the car sits right now on RX-7 16s the caliper has about a pinky width of clearance to rim.

this is the first ive heard of this swap, good info, although i already have the legend so im set there. as for the RL calipers, the 17" wheel diameter isnt the problem, its the offset of the factory wheel thats the problem, to fit with factory wheels we need like 20mm spacers (although i still haven't heard anyone able to nail this number down). and that requires extended studs or janky bolt on spacers with new studs attached, never been comfortable with those.
