price is tempting one of my friends bought those and was happy with them ...

Usually the thing to look for when buying rotors is to make sure they are slotted rather than drilled ... drilled rotors tend to have micro fractures and cracks from daily driving and you won't have that problem with the slotted ones ...

drilled ones are made intentionally for racing but for that price phuck it go for it ...

as far as pads go ... from the owners here and other users thermoquiets seems to be the best because they don't squeal over time, and other brands will do that especially hawk pads

you really don't have to go that method for instance on mine

I went with that same setup and my pads are hawk pads when they start squealing i will switch to thermoquiet

i was looking around online and didnt find much on the pads, (except for the fact they are made by the same company as the rotors), but the rotors seem to be popular. every one writes nice reviews, and this eBay company seems to sponsor a lot of forums.


as far as the cracks on the drilled rotors, do are jeeps produce enough pressure to even cause it? when i was beefing up my dads vette i put Bear drilled and slotted rotors on his corvette and they have been on for roughly 40K now, no cracking issues. The race cars we put them in would show the cracks after some races but they ran a MUCH stronger pressure through the whole system.

Well the pads are Z16 Evolution Ceramic Pads from Powerstop. So Boniomario you have the same rotors do you like them do that stop better than stock ? How long have you had them installed, Did you install them yourself, Any rusting ? Got any pictures

Thanks
Chris
