Summit's Ultimate Rotors & Pads...

Just wondering if anyone has had an experience with Summit Racings ultimate perf. rotors and pads on the WJ or any Jeep really?

Seem to be fairly priced for zinc coated rotors and ceramic pads...

I may get some other items (Eibach springs ...) from there so would be handy to combine shipping.

Here is the link to the package for the fronts and this is the rear. Any idea as to why the rears are more expensive, thought it'd be the other way around!?

EDIT: If the rotors are good, would it be worth upgrading the pads to EBC Green Stuff 6000?

EDIT2: D'oh!! I just realised there is more than just their own brand they sell. So I'm open to any suggestions on brands they have on the left: EBC, Baer, Power Stop, Power Slot etc....


Thanks in advance!

I went with EBC Green stuff 6000 all the way around and the EBC dimpled and slotted rotors. The black ones, NO DRILLED.

Re: Summit's Ultimate Rotors & Pads...

Hmm.. I have the Hawk HPS pads at the moment, need to check the amount of life left on them as I may just get discs only.

TBH, the Mopar parts are tempting too because I know the smooth rotors are dead quiet... Decisions are a PITA...

Re: Summit's Ultimate Rotors & Pads...

Rears are probably more expensive due to the emergency brake in the rear rotors.
