Also, unless you are actually using it for mountain biking, i wouldn't bother; cheap disc brakes are awful; most alloyl v-brakes are fine and can be improved dramatically with better pads such as Koolstop (Salmon coloured).

Salmon - Kool Stops most famous Salmon compound is also one of their most aggressive compounds for extreme all weather conditions especially in the wet, but still superb in the dry.

i don't want to spend money on new pads every year for a v brake and the disc brake doesn't use them up as fast. i also need them for trails and out camping because some campground don't have pavement at all.

Depending on the model and year of the car you may be able to find a conversion kit. If not you'll have to do a lot of your own custom changes to the car to change over to disk brakes.
