It has Coopercraft calipers on it now, and I fitted a new master cylinder and flexible hoses ( the old ones were completely blocked ).
I've got Dunlops on my 403 and find they are well up to the job of hauling up the car. Not had any issues with the callipers, despite the car not being used regularly.

Basically Bristol's would do pretty much do what ever their customers asked.
