recomandation for brake pads and rotors

Hi all
I have some vibration problem when i apply the brakes on the driver side and also in the steering wheel.
I gess it's a wraped rotor , correct me if im wrong .
What would you recomend to solve the problem ? What are the best rotor for replacement instead of OEM.
I was thinking Slotted DBA rotors to replace stock that will wrap in all case

Any advice is welcome

Re: recomandation for brake pads and rotors

I bought Centric rotors (plain, not slotted or drilled) and pads from TireRack. High quality products, better than OEM at very good prices. Been installed for about 50k, better braking than stock, with zero issues.

Powerstop makes very good kits. I put them on my Yukon and will be putting them on my Blazer very soon. The GC will be getting them when the time is right.

Re: recomandation for brake pads and rotors

im in the same boat and I think when all is said and done ill end up with a plain face rotor from raybestos and a set of raybestos pads. my OEM rotors have lasted me... 80k+ with two pad swaps- but the fronts are warped and the amount of brake dust lately is ridiculous.


if youre looking for a slotted option- im looking at EBCs or powerslots with a decent ceramic pad like a raybestos or a wagner thermoquiet

Re: recomandation for brake pads and rotors

FWIW, Centric is very high quality, a division of Stoptech, racing brakes. A good friend just replaced his Wilwood ultralight setup with Stoptech (Cobra race car) and the stopping difference is dramatic with zero fade.

Re: recomandation for brake pads and rotors

the more I look and read through threads- ive made my mind up, going raybestos pads/rotors. blank rotors, no need here for the slotted or drilled. its a daily driver, not a race car.

That's a good choice. But if you change your mind:

good one.

idk, 1 replaced the rotors on my WK at 66k and here at 149k theyre finally warped. 80+k on a set of OEM rotors, cant be disappointed in that. I feel a new set of blanks are more than suffice

I'm at 125K miles on my original OEM rotors and think I have only replaced one set of brake pads, but I am starting to get some vibration under heavy braking. I don't need the drilled/ slotted rotors, but they sure look good!!

Agreed! A set of drilled and slotted black EBC rotors would look tits, but at $450 for all 4- they're not necessary

Re: recomandation for brake pads and rotors

For how cheap a new set of quality blanks are, and how long they last. I replace and do not resurface. MY OEM pads/rotors lasted 74k, then switched to Centric's. 40k later zero vibrations or issues, or brake dust or any noise.
