First of all, there is an old saying; "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". :)

If your vehicles brakes are not doing the job, if they are not adequately stopping your vehicle, if they are overheating with the very dangerous resulting brake fade, if you have a race car that will generate a lot of heat in the brakes and not a street car that doesn't generate race car brake temperatures, then yes these are performance problems that would be best to address.

But if your vehicle is not exhibiting any of these problems then there is no need or benefit to upgrade the brakes with racing brake components. In fact, street braking effectiveness can actually be reduced by using racing brake components with a street car. This is common with many racing parts being used on the street. Great idea for a race car, but not a great idea for a street car.
