Answer!

The three most important systems involved in slowing down a car are its brake system, suspension, and tires.

The brake system is obviously important - it provides the actually stopping force to the wheels and tires.

The suspension system is also important since it keeps the car's tires in firm contact with the ground (even on uneven terrain) and keeps the weight of the car distributed as evenly as possible even when turning or stopping quickly.

However, you can see what these two systems have in common - they both function to provide maximum performance to the vehicle's tires. This makes the tires' performance and condition the single most important consideration in a vehicle's stopping performance.
