Hey Guys,

I, along with many other 04-07' Titan owners, have wanted a BIGGER braking systems. I've found that unless you're running 18"+ wheels, all of the existing kits have been too big to fit inside a 17" wheel (as far as I know...). The second thing is the cost of the larger kits is pretty steep for some, so this mod is definitely more economical!!

I recently had a buddy install a set of 08' Calipers, Rotors and Pads on my 2005 Titan. I have Helo Maxx8 Chrome 17x9 wheels. After install I was left with about a 1/4"+ clearance all around the wheel. There isn't ANY rubbing, and it's definitely a perfect fit.

Just thought I would share this with everyone... Here are some pics :cheers:!

Interesting.

I wonder how much clearance is there on '06-'08's.

FYI. I changed out my rotors to PowerSlots and love them along with EBC brake pads. Very firm!

Not sure of the compatibility between other rotors, but slotted/cross-drilled would definitely be an even better addition to this upgrade!! I know that the calipers/rotors/pads/hardware were each sold separately :upsidedow ...

Cool. Thanks for sharing. Wonder if my 17" wheels will fit? Only one way to find out I suppose!

I think the new trucks have 18" as minimum...so you'd likely be pushing it.

BEST is using 18 inch wheels OFFSET ??
very few 17 inch will work & I know 04-07 Offroad Wheels will not work.
PART # - (PART NAME) = AMOUNT NEEDED
D1060-ZC60J (HARDWARE KIT)= 1
D1080-ZC60B (BRAKE PADS) = 1
41011-ZC60B (LEFT CALIPER) = 1
41001-ZC60B (RIGHT CALIPER) = 1
40206-ZR00A (ROTORS) = 2
41005-ZC00A (BOLTS) = 4
BRAKE FLUID AT LEAST DOT 3 OR HIGHER
I HAVE DONE 2 SETS NOW..
no mods needed direct bolt on even with Pro-Comp,Fabtech or CST spindles.. Brake pedal alittle softer but brakes much better..
Retail parts are just under $1000 but if you have a hook up...
Thanks Littlemike822 for finally posting it..

I asked because the poster has 17" wheels. I'm sure if the dealer stands to sell $1000 in parts, they'd gladly let me try my wheel on a new truck in their lot??? :dunno:

Littlemike822 has Helo Maxx8 Chrome 17x9 wheels & seem to be the only 17 that will fit..
We tried 6 different wheels for 08 Titan & none fit (even 2 18 inch.)

Yes.. I know because some 08 XE's come with left over wheels from SE's & LE's or Silver steel wheels..

Oh this is great news! Totally awesome! Finally we have a upgrade path. Nissan is listening and watching the domestic market as far as how to build trucks.

What about the center hub, still the same size? Reuse the old one? TIA
Same size.. but you cant install old rotors 13 inch on 08 truck front hub..
08 front hub has a collar on it..

Probably one of the best mods thus far... And wife/old lady can't fight the $$$ for it because it's a "Safety" feature!! Hahahaha & Good Luck!

awesome deal, glad someone w/ 17"s did this... I had been wondering about the same thing since I probably have about 3 - 6 mths. left on my current brakes... oh yeah, those are HeloMaxx-6's, not 8's... lol, six spokes... kinda like mine...
