How bad are 22's on brakes?

I have a set of 22's. Was wondering how bad are they on our brakes? I haven't replaced the factory brake pads yet and before I put them on. Do I really need to upgrade to the cts-v calipers? Just a little FYI I do like driving fast.

If you are not tracking the car, chances are the CTS-V brake kit will be a little over-kill. However; they will help fill up the look inside the wheel.

A good set of pads, lines and fluid will likely be all you need from a performance stand point though.

Best regards,

No expert here, but I'll give my 2cents for whats it worth. I would assume you are still running the same overall tire diameter, just with a smaller sidewall. The car shouldn't be able to tell if it's a 22" wheel or 10" wheel assuming the tire diameter remains the same. Now, if there was a significant weight difference or distribution of weight between the two wheels, then I guess rotational inertia could come into play.

It isn't the size, it is the rolling mass that causes issues.
