Well a LOT of people have bought them and have been happy with them. It was a group buy or a big discount.

The answer to this question really depends on the Track you are on and your driving style. But generally the recommendation is Stock rotors and Calipers are fine for track use. Pads and brake fluid need to be upgraded at a minimum to prevent/minimize brake fad.

Do you know if the stock calipers and brakes are fine when you put bigger rims and tires on? Going from 17x8's to 18x9 and 18x10 with 305's in the back. Dont want the brakes to fail.

Yes, the stock rotors and calipers will be fine. The brakes will not "fail", that would be extremly rare regardless of tire size, etc. The stock brakes may "fade" (spongy feel, reduced stopping power) with extended heavy use and little cooling. Depending on driving style you may want to upgrade your pads to something like Hawk HPS. If you are on a road track, upgrade your fluid.
