We'll see what he says.....
He needs to update that site to show the correct year, but if you call him he'll tell you exactly what goes with your WK's year.
I'm sure he'll be here soon.

No I haven' order them for my WJ yet, but next time I need brakes, those will be the ones I'll be getting.
And the pads I would get to go with the R1 Premium drilled and slotted rotors for the WJ would be the Hawk LTS Truck/SUV Pads. Just my personal taste .

Re: My new R1 Concept Premium Rotors and new brake pads

I saw these brakes today. OMFG, what a work of art. Oh and BTW- those brake pads were bedded very well.

Re: My new R1 Concept Premium Rotors and new brake pads

Mario you'll love them. I'd had mine on for about 5000 miles with with the Hawk HPS pads and they work great and have been quiet. Plus they look great.

Re: My new R1 Concept Premium Rotors and new brake pads

Looks great. must Have set you back a nice amount of cash.

I need to do front brakes on my limited soon, I need to find good but reasonably priced drilled/slotted rotors and oem pads, (i guess they last longer vs the hawks pads)

Kyle, don't go by the prices on their website. I paid $500 for all 4 drilled and slotted premium rotors including shipping. That's why I would like R1 Concepts to be a vendor here as well, I'm sure he'll come up with some crazy group buys for all you guys here.

Thats awesome. I know i need tires and brakes before winter and i did not want to put stock back in. My rear pads are 2 months old but both front and rear rotors need replacing as well as front pads. I think i am going to use mopar pads up front.

Re: My new R1 Concept Premium Rotors and new brake pads

They look good Mario. Helps give the jeep something else to look at while looking into the 20's.

I plan on doing this same exact set up down the road so keep us posted on how you like it.

I know the R1's have a good amount of positive praise on the red site.
