New Rotors and Pads

2014 overland with 70k miles. Just put on some brake performance dimpled/slotted rotors with thermo quiet pads. Also painted the calipers red. Very happy with the look and performance. Will post a pic when I get a wash (waiting for paint to cure). The old pads still looked good but the front rotors had worn down considerably, was starting to get some pulsing. Recommend that you pay extra attention to the rotors when checking the brakes. Had mine checked 3k ago and they said I had plenty of pad left, didn't say anything about worn rotor.

Re: New Rotors and Pads

Oh ya I have seen those, are the ceramic pads noisy when braking or is it too early to tell

Only about 100 miles so far. Very quiet.
