A high performance Wilwood Big Brake Kit for your Gen1 and Gen2 MINI. Designed for the street and track, this brake kit with 12.19" rotors increases stopping power while greatly reducing brake fade.
Radial mounting provides secure and accurate installation of the forged billet DynaPro four piston caliper with large diameter rotors for your Mini Cooper. These kits are the perfect compliment to wheel, tire, and suspension upgrades on daily drivers, competition vehicles, and custom styled show machines. This kit is engineered specific for the Mini Cooper to maintain full compatibility with the OE master cylinder output and factory ABS functions.
Fits the following models:
2002-2006 R50 MINI Cooper and R53 Cooper S Hatchback
2005-2008 R52 MINI Cooper and S Convertible
2007-2013 R56 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hatchback

Select rotor type and matching brake lines (required).
Most stock OEM wheels will need spacers to fit (use template below to confirm fitment before ordering - clearance will vary depending on the wheel).
CHECK BRAKE CALIPER TEMPLATE BEFORE ORDERING. Use this template to ensure compatibility with your wheels - Big Brake Kits require more space behind the spokes to clear the caliper. In some cases, spacers may provide the necessary clearance.
Forged Billet DynaPro 4 Piston Calipers - Stress flow forging re-aligns the metal's grain structure eliminating the stresses and interruptions to the internal grain structure. FEA generated radial transition design substantially increases resistance to deflection and caliper separation.
7816 "Q" compound Polymatrix Pads - Operates at the lowest noise and dust level of any performance pad. Polymatrix Q offers high resistance to fade, long wear, and low rotor abrasion.
GT Series Rotor Mounting Hats - Lightweight and strong, these hats are specially designed for use on OE hubs without modifications or interference to the suspension or ABS components. Black anodized finish prevents corrosion and enhances appearance.
SRP Series 12.19" Vented Iron Rotors - Adds stopping power and cooling capacity over smaller diameter OE rotors. Premium grade, long grain carbon iron provides long wear with high thermal stability and resistance to distortion. Venting and cleaning action of the holes and slots reduce pad glaze, dissipate surface heat, and minimize irregular pad build-up on rotor faces. This results in smoother engagement with improved consistency and response at the pedal. Treated with silver zinc wash, these rotors resist corrosion.
Caliper Brackets and Hardware - Aluminum mount brackets with steel threaded bolt inserts are lightweight and stong. Each bracket is CNC machined for precise fit. Grade 8 or higher and AN style nuts, bolts studs, washers, and alignment shims are included in all applicable kits.
Note: Installation of Wilwood Disc Brakes may affect the wheel offset.
Brake fluid should be replaced every 2 years.
