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

Is it worth it to spend the extra few hundred bucks to get the nicer rotors that they have on their site? When i do mine this fall i want to get the brakes from them but i cant afford $300/450 for rotors alone for those really nice ones. Will the Zinc slotted/drilled ones be just as good? (its just a limited 4.7 not an srt)

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

Thats pretty sick. Though i dont want full ceramic pads, ive heard too much about them lasting less then 10k miles. and i guess they wear down the rotors quite a bit. They are supposed to be used to for high performance cars and less DD use i guess.

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

Dont go by me, i know nothing about whats good/bad when it comes to brake pads, tha tis just what i was told to do, keep stock pads and get nice rotors for DD use, if its hi performance only get the ceramic ones.

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

^-- Like Scott said. Plus if your pads are fawked and you replace only the rotors, your pads will unevenly wear your rotors...and vice versa.
