if you are using them for DD and you dont slam on your brakes at redlights or everytime you see the car in front of you braking like a woman then they will make good replacement but for that price i would go with powerslot brand if you want the slotted OR drilled look.

i think brembo blanks are 30-40$ /PAIR if you are looking for something QUALITY you can beat on.

Brakes are necessary for stopping your car, and keeping you alive. Don't cheap out. $40 for a pair of quality Brembo rotors is not that much to ask. Low-end store brand pads are good enough to stop the car. I'd trust Brembo blanks and Autozone cheapie pads over some no-name "performance" garbage like that. See the holes drilled in those rotors? Yeah, that's where they'll crack.

It doesn't matter if it's a DD or not, and it doesn't matter if you ever go faster than 35mph. The FIRST time you drive the car and get to 35mph, cheap-shit brakes could fail on you, causing you to crash. 35mph could be a fatal speed for brake failure.

Cool

Ebay stuffs are perfectly fine. I saw a guy on TV who used Ebay brake products. But he saved money. He also cut a big square on his driver's side floor in case the brakes failed, he put on his steel boots and used his feet to stop the car. I think his name is Flintstone. Lol.

Ive been using the ebay drilled and slotted rotors with ebay pads for 6 months now. So far so good. They tend to surface rust rather quick though. If you dont drive your car for more than a week at a time you might have a bit of trouble stopping the first time. Just ride the brakes for a sec and it takes the rust right off.

You guys are aware that "ebay" doesn't make anything, right? You can buy high quality stuff on ebay just as much as you can buy low quality stuff.


Here, look at it this way... changing our front rotors is a HUGE pain in the ass... so do it once, with quality rotors, and you won't have to do it again for a while. Do it with cheap shit, and at the very least, you'll probably have to do it much sooner than you'd like.
My 92 has Brembos that were slotted and drilled by an "ebay" company back in 2004. Would I bother with the slotted and drilled again? No. They eat pads, and they can crack. But the Brembos have held up to some seriously harsh driving, for many MANY miles.


Bad_Dude, I'm a PI, and I drive for a living. My 09 is my work car, ever since my CB7 broke down. The 86 has been an undriven project since 2004. I have a thread about those cars in OT.

Where are you guys finding brembo blanks at $40/pair?


I was going to order some for my cd5 off rockauto, and they were about 35-40 a piece, and then $110 to ship from UK.

I thought that shit was ridiculous. Ive seen plenty on ebay, for about 40'ish dollars per rotor, plus shipping.

I went with RAYBESTOS 96111 and Akebono street performance pad. It came out to $132.25

Less than the eBay price ya posted but these are Front setup only though. I cannot tell if these feel any better than OEM.

Maybe the earlier post was a typo? I cannot find anything close to $40 for the pair.

I've went this route before, don't do it. They are no-name rotors and wont last and are not safe. I think I went about a year and a half before I was replacing them again due to rusting and warping. Plus when you do have to slam on the brakes suddenly you really realize the difference between cheap and expensive. (which in this case could save your life, or someone elses). If needed save your money and go with a good brand and they will last forever.

Cheers

Brembo blanks are the way to go. Brakes are NOT something you want to cheap out on no matter what the deal is.

Please dear god dont cheap out on brakes. There are other people on the road when your brakes may give out....
