Default Going from 13in to 15in tires will braking be an issue?

Hi Civic peeps, I have a 96 civic dx I am going from the 13in to a 15in 195/50/15 because the is almost zero options for 13in tires, my question is will this put a huge strain on my brakes/ brake system? I am mounting them on a set of steelies. I would really appreciate some feedback. I always get great help here so thank you in advance. Peter

You won't notice much difference but I would upgrade to some very good pads. I just put Hawk pads on my Civic and it stops much better.

the tires would be more of an issue then the wheel size when it comes to braking.

what i mean is the brand and model tire relevant to your environment. a set of no name chinese tires won't handle or brake anywhere near as good as to the name brand counterparts.
