    Most likely, Kia only increased the front rotor size for the SX and kept the rear size the same across all trims.

    Good find though!

    The stock front rotors are .8 inches bigger on the SX than other Forte models.

    Odds are, you guys have the same brakes as us, which means the Ksport BBK will work, both the 6 and 8 piston variants.

    I did searching around and I believe the SX optima front rotors are bigger yet than our SX front rotors... so a caliper swap would have to be done, but I believe there is someone on the veloster forum that has done that already
