Wilwood's new AERO6 Big Brake kit is specifically designed to upgrade your C5 & C6 Corvette' front brakes for aggressive street or dedicated competition. Engineered to provide maximum braking capacity without any modification to your Corvette. Fits 1997-2013 Corvettes with 18" high offset wheels or factory C6 Z06 equipped Corvettes. See install sheet online for wheel fitment dimensions.

The new AERO6 forged six-piston caliper delivers heavy duty stopping power for the road or track. The caliper incorporates race technology into a body design with widespread adaptability. Radial mounting, multiple options for piston volume, and a rotor diameter ranging from 12.88" to 15.00" give this caliper the versatility necessary to suit all types of heavy weight braking requirements. The body of Aero series caliper is stress-flow forged from a premium grade aluminum alloy billet. Stress-flow forging realigns the metal's internal grain structure to flow within the contour of the caliper body. This process eliminates the stresses and interruptions to the internal grain structure that occur when machining a straight block billet. The results are a caliper with superior clamping efficiency and ultimate strength against fatigue, stresses, and distortion under load.

GT Series Big Brake Short Offset rotor hats are precision machined from premium aluminum alloys for high strength and attention to minimized weight. Hats in this category feature threaded rotor mount holes for use with standard through-hole mount rotors. Threaded hole hats may also be used with T-Nuts or bobbins designed for use with specially machined slotted hole dynamic mount rotors. When used in conjunction with matched Wilwood rotor hardware kits, GT hats provide solid, reliable performance in the most demanding conditions.

Wilwood's GT 60 Curved Vane Spec-37 rotors are manufactured from a proprietary iron alloy developed to withstand extreme temperatures with the highest possible degree of resistance against distortion, warping, cracking, and wear. The formulation for this alloy is a derivative of technology and materials that were significant in the development of the extreme duty military spec rotors that are manufactured by Wilwood. Combined with our proven GT Series asymmetrical face slot pattern and individual dynamic balancing, you are assured the smoothest, vibration free performance at any speed. These rotors provide the highest cooling capacity and longest service life for extreme braking short tracks and road course competition.

Note: Wilwood brake hoses are required for installation of all SL4 brake calipers on 1997-2013 Corvettes. See Zip # DB-1151 for 1997-2004 Corvettes and DB-1153 for 2005-2013 Corvettes for the stainless brake hoses to complete installation.
