Why Choose PMB Performance?

For the last 15 years PMB Performance has been rebuilding vintage brake calipers, using OEM finish techniques and factory seals to restore them to like-new condition. From factory 917, 908 and 911R race cars to daily driver 356's, 308's, 914's and Alfa Spiders, we've done them all.

We are the "only" brake caliper restoration facility that uses factory finish techniques exclusively.  No cheap aftermarket poly coatings, just zinc plated steel and anodized aluminum.  It is the worn zinc plating and the anodizing in the piston bore that causes 99% of all caliper failures.  Our strict adherence to finish both "inside and out" make us the only caliper restoration facility in the world that can offer an astounding 10-year warranty on our products.

This is why we say "We don't just rebuild brakes... we restore them".  Whether you plan to compete in an important Concours d'Elegance or you simply want the best for your vintage Porsche, Lamborghini, Alfa or Ferrari, we can get you back on the road.

Any Requests?

As a general rule of thumb... if we can get a rebuild kit for it, we can rebuild it.  We've gone to great lengths on extreme calipers.  1971 Lockheed Indy Car calipers?  We've restored them to like new condition.  356 annular brakes? Yup.  Porsche 917 Girling calipers?  We've built a (couple two three) full sets with custom pistons and drilled fasteners.  How about prototype calipers on your 911R #001?  Yeah, we've done those.  Delicate RSR calipers that haven't been treated very delicately in the past? We've repaired the broken fins and give them the proper black anodized finish.  Uber rare magnesium 908 calipers? We're the only place on the planet that has hard anodized 908 pistons.  Or... maybe you want your calipers rebuilt off the special 914 you were conceived in (it could happen).  If you want them done properly, you'll want us to do them.

How Does All This Work?

We get this question often; how do I go about getting calipers from you or getting my calipers restored by you?  Here's the short answer:

1. If you know exactly what you have, you can purchase calipers outright off our website.  We'll also be happy to help you identify calipers if you're uncertain of what you have. You will (usually) pay a $200.00 core charge for each pair of calipers at that time, if we have cores available for your vehicle.  We usually ship within 2-4 days if the items are in stock.  You will get your core charge back upon receiving and deeming your cores rebuildable (most are).

2.  You can send your calipers in and we can then assess the condition and send suitable replacements if we have the cores in stock.  This avoids the core charge.  We usually ship within 2-4 days from when we receive your cores.  

3. You can send you calipers in to be restored.  This (obviously) avoids the core charge.  This is sometimes the only option on rare Dunlop or Girling calipers.  We usually ship within 10-14 days from receipt of your calipers.
