Straight up braking is no longer limited by tire size. Our front tires are capable of lifting our rear tires off the ground under braking. The tire/suspension capability has exceeded our CoG moment of rotation. Plainly put, your tire size no longer matters if you can get the rear to lift off the ground and thus negate it's capability to transfer braking force to the ground. It all becomes a matter of balance between front grip and front flip.

The Vette won't stoppie either. It's rears stay on the ground.
As far as ceramic brakes, carbon brakes, etc are concerned, they only affect braking power after frequent braking from high speeds. They are more tolerant of heat and even work better at high temperatures. They actually underperform regular street brakes for a cold quick stop from 60-0.
