Welcome to the site.

Everything I have seen or read, I would say that their systems are equal in quality and performance.

Any disks are better than drums.

And as an unrequested comment I will state that in the real world, the difference between brakes is mostly manifested in how much traction your tires have.

Some of the baer kits use factory type calipers from some application. Because of this they will have dust boots on them. I don't know of any Wilwood's that come with dust boots making them not so good of an idea for a street driven vehicle.
