Default what size brakes

my car will be 3000lbs, 5.7 hemi (small block size) weight up front. i seem to think wilwoods will best suite my needs and buget. is it better to have 13s in the front and 12s in the back or 13s on all corners? i wont be road course racing this car, but i do want to have serious brakes when i need them. im seeing some of you are looking into this hydroboost as well. for now i just need a recommend size disc brake set up for my car. thanks

The front break on our types of cars do the bulk of the braking so they are going to be the bigger diameter.

The rear being the lighter end of the car requires less braking force and thus the smaller rotors.
