    Upgrades to EBC Ultimax rotor and Redstuff pads


    EBC RedStuff pad!




    Nice slotted EBC Ultimax rotor

    So satisfied with low dust and good bite.

    Please check out the correct part number of EBC brake parts with the reference below if you consider EBC brake parts

    EBC makes some good products for sure. My last vehicle was a 97 Jeep Wrangler and when I upped my tires to 33", I upgraded my brakes to the yellowstuff pads to help deal with the much larger and heavier tires and I was definitely not disappointed.

    Just installed red stuff pads about a month ago extremely dissatisfied, large amount of brake dust they produce for being an expensive pad and rated least amount of brake dust compared to their other pads

    I experienced the same thing when I had them on my '08 Caliber SRT4. More dust than the OEM pads (which was pretty high), and they were constantly noisy. This was even with spraying disc brake quiet on the back of them, and bedding them in properly. I switched to Hawks and was much happier.

    Changed to Redstuff on my J55 fronts to try to reduce dust (original rotors turned). Just passed break-in period, so I am not sure if they will get better. Not happy with the amount of dust, just as bad as the originals. I still had plenty of pad left, was only looking for a dust reduction going from semi-metallic to ceramic :-(
