    New brakes and rotors.

    Hey fellow owners. Hows everyone today? I recently bought new brakes & rotors. Brakes are Bendix global pads all around. Rotors are ATE PremiumOne Disc Brake Rotor. http://m1290.photobucket.com/albumvi....jpg.html?o=14
    Just looking for options and comments on my choices.

    If they are cheap Chinese made crap, they will warp an not last. Been there and done that before.

    Re: New brakes and rotors.

    I have heard and read that its a German product. So shouldn't be an issue there. The thing I'm concerned about is the economy bendix brakes I have to go with these rotors. Was told they might chew up the rotor? Does that sound right to anyone?

    "Chew up the rotor"? No, but they. Probably won't be anything special. May dust, be noisy...

    Rotors are made of cast iron, they DO NOT warp.

    get the ceramic pads, less dust and last longer.

    For brake homework, go through the pages and links in www.ebcbrakes.com

    The StopTech website - pad and rotor discussions - is currently down.

    Brake rotors are machined from cast iron for good reason. Study.

    Re: New brakes and rotors.

    However, badly 'warped' rotors frequently repeat their vibrating in a short period of time, and are then completely replaced to eliminate the problem for good.

    Well, the truth is, brake rotors do not warp at all, and a simple recommendation can save you a lot of money at your next brake services and the future ones to follow.

    According to this magnificent article from StopTech, the cause of brake vibrations or shimmies is the result of uneven transfer of brake pad
    I stand corrected. The my cheap Chinese ones weren't true to flat. Had to replace them in about 10K

    Re: New brakes and rotors.

    i installed brand new u rotors and brakes.
    rotors are slotted, drilled and zinc plated by R1Concents
    Brakes are ceramic from Power Stop
    i was replacing my bad sway bar link today and decided to take a look on pads. i got upset after what i saw on pads that been on for about 600 miles
    i dont know if my rotors did all this with pads?.....


    my semi metallic from RAYBESTOS that i had for over 2 years looked even batter and still had over 80% left, i will call to rockauto and see if they can do replacement for me for RAYBESTOS ceramic ones. i paid for Power Stop like $40

    Thanks. So those pads were brand new 600 miles ago, that's weird how they got like that. That's a shame. That's why I was hesitant about getting ceramic. Have some friends that have had back luck with them including you it looks like.
