There's two options.

Upgrade the BF (or Territory) brakes. Bolt right up, and solves the warping problem.

Spend some moola, and upgrade to a Brembo kit. There's plenty floating around eBay with the right brackets to bolt up to a B series. The callipers may not clear your wheels though, as they're pretty big.

I'm not 100% sure (haven't done it myself), but only callipers/pads and discs need to be sourced. Apparently it all bolts up like factory.

Check a wrecker for the BF setup.

(same with the Brembo's but you need the calliper mounting brackets and new brake lines too)

That's more a symptom of poor quality wheels.

There's a reason you can get 20"s and tyres for $1500. It's because both the wheels and tyres are s**t quality.

"s**t aussie roads" - you do realise that with the increasing popularity of SUV's (shudder, american terminology continues to contaminate our society - if Canadians are plastic yanks, I guess we're becoming... paper ones?) - the writing is on the wall - ie. there is/will be so many large vehicles designed for rough terrain in use that the authorities will become less and less diligent about keeping roads in good repair..... :(
