Its here, the “TMN Good Brakes™" Kit for Volkswagen Kombi’s 1955 to 1963. Complete kit with "Wide Five" (5 X 205) Wheel Bolt pattern.
Over the last few years we have been developing this kit as we have been dissatisfied with other kits that have been on offer, after living with them and hearing clients feed back, we decided we could do it better……….and we have.
Why are our kits are better…
1) They have a quality readly available vented brake rotor, not a proprietary steel rotor that you can only buy from the brake kit manufacturer, that wears quickly, is noisy when the brakes are applied and "clicks and ticks" when heating up and cooling down.
2) With the “TMN Good Brakes” kit you can purchase the kit in parts, this means if you want to get the latest race brake rotor with slots and cross drilling you can, or if you are on a budget, you can even get a set of used rotors from your local dismantler, or for ease go with the rotors we supply with the complete kit here at The Metric Nut VW. The choice is yours, no other kit offers those options.
3) Off set, our brakes have less than half the off set of any similar brake set up, the off set is a minamal 5mm and this includes the wider vented rotor, less off set reduces the chance of tyre rub. Other brake kits out there are over 12mm of set and with a thin rotor.
4) The ability to change wheel patterns. We will be offering 5 X 205 or Porsche pattern 5 X 130 (Porsche pattern will be available later this year) as standard options and the ability to change with the purchase of the adaptors to change from one pattern to the other if you want to change wheels later on.
5) New Zealand LVVT certifiable, we have worked with the LVVT authority to make sure our kit complies with no issues, and are pre approved, no other VW brake kit has this for New Zealand and it will save you money at the time of certification.
6) Will fit Dropped and Stock Spindle set ups.
Alloy wheels are the best fit to these brake kits due to clearance, also alloy wheels allow you to use wider tyres (as alloys are wider than stock steel wheels), having wider tyres allows better braking performance due to a larger contact patch on the road.
Steel Wheels will fit, but only Beetle 15” rims or larger steel wheels.
Will not fit Kombi factory VW rims.
Your Master Cylinder is recommend to be changed for the best performance and safety of your braking system when changing to the TMN Good Brakes kit, we recommend changing to this master cylinder available here, you will need to also order the spacer kit if you are using this kit on a pre 1967 Kombi, the spacer is avalaible here.
We also recomend for the best brake performance you also purchase our "TMN Booster Pack™" Brake booster kit for a modern brake power and feel. See the selection here.
