    I edited my previous post. I did a horrible curb job so since having to replace a rotor I'm just going all in for this whole upgrade with reman and new parts.

    I don't know anything about wheels. That sort of thing depends entirely on offset and other specs.

    Apparently the AV6 rotors are 11.1 factory, I didn't know that. Roy is right on that use factory brake rotors.

    Great. So for V6s it's just a caliper and pad swap... sounds simple enough.

    As to offset, it's +40, I have plenty of clearance for a 16'.

    Ok. So let me make sure the list i have is right.

    -4th gen prelude rotors(11.1in. 282x23mm)
    -V6 Accord caliper bracket(23T) or the 25T
    -Acura Legend GS calipers

    What brake pads do i go with for this set up?

    Pads that fit the bracket, so pads for a v6 6GA
