New Rotors and pads? What do people recommend?

Postby NewShockerGuy » Sat Apr 16, 2011 11:25 am

Anyone have recommendations on front and rear rotors and pads?

They don't have to be cross drilled or slotted. Slotted would be fine if they are cheaper than stock, BTW how much are stock rotors?

Thanks,

Need more input, otherwise you'e just asking what everybody has. Are you looking for something comparable to stock, slight upgrade, or track-grade stuff. Does noise matter? Does dusting matter? Do you want to upgrade hardware like rotor size, bracket relocation, caliper?

most people suggest getting brembo blanks for an upgrade to rotor while keeping everything else the same
if u change pads and get slotted or drilled ull get some squealing

EBC Red Stuff pads is where it's at. That combined with some EBC Ultimax Slotted Rotors would be a killer set up...but you could also get some R1 rotors off ebay and save some bucks.

I personally dislike my brembo blanks, wish i spent a few extra bucks for the OEM
toyota ones. btw I have it paired with the oem pads.

They just dont feel as solid as before. and before everyone flames me on
the brake line, i have the stainless steel lines too.

but thats just me.
