Stoptech BBK ST60 380mm for 435i F32 on 19" wheels?

Guys do you know if the Stoptech 6 piston calipers will fit the 435i with 19" wheels?



The rotor size on this kit is 380x32mm and I currently have these wheels in 19"

Not a big fan of cross drilled rotors...prone to cracking. Slotted are better IMHO. These look nice. Plan on tracking the car? As far as fitment..not sure. Their website doesn't tell you?

(I have cross drilled rotors on my Benz...they show stress fractures but you're required to replace them every 2 brake jobs anyway..and they're MBZ factory rotors meant for the car.) If you go this route, find out the best High temp brake fluid too; ATE is a good brand; not sure if they make it for our BMWs........

Their website says MINIMUM 19" wheel...which you said you have..so in theory...yes. I'd contact them for sure though.

Me neither for heavy track use. But for occasional Trackdays it's more than enough, the drill will develop small cracks over time buy it's nothing you should be worried about

When i looked up the setup, it shows slotted rotors for this application...so you might want to verify

High quality drilled rotors are just fine. Buying cheap drilled rotors to replace stock are not good.

I have stoptechs on my m3 and they are great. But for the money you can get the M performance brakes on our cars and they are the exact same as on the current M3 for not much money...Also the M performance brakes are quiet with no pad knock.

Calipers are the same. Rotors are larger on the M3 resulting in a larger swept area per rotation.
