Default What brakes to go to when running 20s?

I am going to 20s with 255/45-20 tires and they are much heavier than the stock LT setup.
I will need some extra braking power. Are there any caliper relocation kits that allow us to use a larger rotor?
I can get vette rotors for free and have heard people have done the swap on S10 vehicles, I just can find the DIY.
If that is not an option what pads should I use to manage this extra rotating mass? Thanks

my blazer is on 20's and i didnt do a big brake upgrade. i just bought a new rotors and the best brake pads and seems to do fine. i know they say not to but i have no problem with mine. i have had to stomp on the brake in emergancy situations and it reacted fine.

One of the most common brake upgrades for an s-10 blazer is to do a corvette brake upgrade!!

I don't have a link but the bolt pattern is the same, I believe that the swap isn't that hard either! I will try and find something about the swap to help you diy!!!
