[FONT='Verdana','sans-serif']its a bit of an extreme analogy but you're still failing to see the correlation between tires and brake fade? RE92's are not gonna put as much stress on your brakes as Yokohoma Advans[/font]

Stock brakes should be able to lock up any street tire.

You worte back that stock brakes ought to be able to lock up any tire, but what pormetheum is saying is that when you lock your brakes, you put very little to no stress on them regardless of what tires you run. It's when you hit your brakes and they do what they are supposed to that you stress them, and he's right; RE92's are gonna put far less stress on stock brake, brembo brakes, any upgrades brake than Yokohama Advans will as a sticky tire is the composition of what makes your braking shorter.
