    Question Anyone Recommend Rotors for 2000 deville

    I dont really know anything about brands when it comes to brake pads and rotors. Can anyone tell me what rotors they would recommend with my 00 deville. I dont want to buy them at brakecheck or other brake shop , where they charge me a whole lot more than if i buy them myself.

    i want rotors that dont collect rusts and will last me awhile.


    i have currently thermo quiet pads, bought them at brake check but wished i didnt.

    greatly appreciated

    I'm sorry to say one you don't need slotted and dimpled rotors on a Deville. Second you spent more money on the rotors that buying them at your local brake shop.

    Just curious why would you want slotted and dimpled rotors? You do realize they aren't effectively machineable?

    As for rear rotors I'd recommend Bendix or Raybestos rotors. Don't bother with slotted, dimpled, or cross drilled rotors. A straight cut rotor is all you'd need.

    if they go out of round or you gouge 'em you won't be able to turn them. in other words - you mess them up you need to replace them. the "true" race boys run them for increase cooling, however, they replace them before each race.

    On me 96DeVille I went with Raybestos:

    pads - QuietStop Ceramic
    rotors - PGPlus VMI

    got complete set from rockauto - ran me round $260 delivered [fast delivery]

    You can run with the vented rotors. I always like to keep all four paws wearing the same clothes. Rubber to rotor. As far as I know it won't matter if you have solid up front and slotted in the rear, Just keep everything in pairs - starbord to port.

    You mention dust. That's not a rotor issue, it's a pad issue. Go with a quality ceramic pad - I recomend the Raybestos line and get 'em from RockAuto. I might also consider a return on what you have.

    Those slotted rotors might eat up the pads a bit more quickly. Again the "race boys" replace that stuff all the time, you're going to want longevity - I would guess.

    well i have lifetime warranty on pads with Brake Check ( brake store)
    and hopefully using slotted rotors wont affect that.

    Brembo or the ATE will be excellent

    The ATE have a MetaCote protective coating helps resist salt, dirt and corrosion.

    I use and like Performance Friction pads.

    I like NAPA rotors and brakes. Their Ceramix pads have good feel and don't leave much dust at all.

    Re: Anyone Recommend Rotors for 2000 deville

    Ok I want to jump in here. I had posted this in the DeVille forum, not thinking,

    //"On my 01 DTS, are all 4 the slip on style? The first time I do brakes on the car I want to do Brembo(or some other upgrade) slotted rotors. I don't want to get into a bearing mess, I hate that.

    Anyone have any experience with a specific brand or type to stay away from? Rotors NOT pads. That's a whole other discussion we've already had."//

    Now I have more questions. I have always been a big fan of Performance Friction Carbon Metallic pads.

    Then with the advent of ceramic I thought they were great. However I hear people saying that the braking power of ceramic isn't that great and they fade more under heavy use.

    So I will assume that all these rotors are slip on style? I hear what you're saying and I agree that slotted or drilled is unnecessary on a DeVille BUT out of good will I have to do slotted for my special project or it just wouldn't be right.

    Re: Anyone Recommend Rotors for 2000 deville

    I can't say that I've heard of rotors to stay away from. One thing I would consider is that whatever you do, try and coordinate the rotor/pad selection. I went w/ Raybestos. The pads are ceramic and the rotors are an alloy that is compatable w/ the pads, at least that's how I understand it.

    So try and match the rotors and pads. Not saying they need to be the same manufacturer, but research the facts based upon the set working the best together. The web-sites have tons of info to sort through.

    I also hear the tales about ceramics fading under heavy use. I'm thinking that comes from the early days of ceramic brake parts. I think the formulas used today provide reliable performance. I'm a street driver - a bit heavy on the pedal - but not into performance driving. I've seen no problems with the set-up I just installed. I do have a vibration coming out of the right rear coming from the rotor I believe, but that's going into a new thread soon......
