Default Larger brake rotors/ stock 17 wheels

Can the stock 17's on my truck handle a larger rotor, or would have have to swap out my wheels too?

Where are you getting larger rotors? Baer? The only time I've seen this was on an Escalade w/ 24's. The rims were larger than nessecary but not by much.

I pretty sure in order to go to like a 14in rotor you would have to run a minimum of 18in wheels

They are Baer. The one piece fits stock wheels according to Baers site.

SSBC's kit requires a 18" wheel.
