Re: Brakes
I just ordered a set of R1 Concept Premium Drilled and Vented with Posi-quiet extended wear pads.

Re: Brakes
R1 are a waste of money for anything short of an srt-8 and even then theyre questionable unless you're racing it.

get some thermoquiet pads and some stock rotors you'll be set.

Re: Brakes
So you're saying I don't need Stop Tech rotors or anything expensive for good braking performance? Just oem rotors and some good pads?

Re: Brakes
If you're just looking for everyday use OEM or slightly better quality, I've had good performance out of NAPA Ultra Premium line (rotors and pads). Slightly more expensive than regular "OEM" quality parts but last much longer than OEM.

Neat thing about these rotors, the exposed parts are painted black, so no rusty rotor parts showing through your wheels.

Re: Brakes
Will the ThermoQuiets work with drilled slotted rotors? Or no?

Re: Brakes
they will. just picked up a set myself from (cheapest I found) and they shipped same day. PLUS you get a $30 MIR when you buy the front and rear sets.
