    Need New Rotors But WHAT KIND>?

    Hey everyone I just found out my front rotors are toasted, cracked all the way through so I need some new ones and want some good ones but dont want to go overboard so I need your opinions on type and a non squeaky pad lol I am looking at either Baer, SSBC, or Brembo for the rotors and what about drilled or slotted or both let me know your 2 cents thanks

    get Brembo blank rotors replacement.... great rotors and not $. avoid slotted/drilled if you want braking performance, unless you rather sacrifice braking for looks.

    I have done some checking on the brembo OEM. Some people say they rust and warp to easy, and some say they are great with the hawk hps pads. I just want to make sure they arent goin to crap out on me or warp, plus I dont want a ton of brake dust from the pad. I want something similar and as good as my stock ones, I mean the things have lasted me for 94K, and have put up with my lead foot lol

    ok i'm not going to autoX or road coarse mine so i went w/ the rotowork drilled and sloted ones from ws6store. and i got the bondix ceramic pads from autozone. the rotors have been on my car for a month and it sat all last week waiting for me to put in a alternator. they didn't have any rust on them!
    so if you don't plan on killen the brakes or trying to bring the car from 160 to 55 in 2 sec. then y not get them...their only $170 for all 4 and they look great! as long as you don't abuse them they'll be fine!

    i'm going to make a new cardomain page for the maro and i'll have pics of the rotors. i'll try to have it up tues.
