Many restorers are switching over to VW disc brakes through our VW disc brake conversion kits. Disc brakes are far superior to the original VW drum brakes, which is why so many manufacturers have switched over to them. Installing disc brakes on your VW Bug will make your vehicle safer, as the disc brake design reduces the chances of overheating and fading that is more likely to happen with a brake drum system. 

 If you have made changes to your Beetle, such as increasing the horsepower or the size of the wheels, or if your original VW brakes aren’t working efficiently you may need to convert to the disc brake system. 

Converting to VW disc brakes? On this page, you’ll find 4- and 5-lug front disc brake conversion kits for most years of the VW Bug. Our VW front disc brake conversion kits will help improve the safety of your VW Beetle. 

We offer brake conversion kits in the 4 x130 lug pattern and the 5 x 205 pattern. Our conversion kits may include disk brake rotors, calipers, brake pads, brackets, and mounting hardware for your air-cooled VW.
