    eBay rotors.

    Hey guys I need some advice here.
    I'm looking to buy some rotors for my ss.
    And I found some on eBay. For $110 for the front and back
    And I believe they come with the pads too. Isn't that to cheap to be good quality?
    Any body bough them before.
    Thanks
    Leo.

    Sounds to good to be good quality right?
    And the pads are ceramic. Just for the pads it's bout 120 dollars.
    The stock rotors are 45 dollars on autozone.
    So idk I think those must be cheap stuff.

    Any sponsor who has them here?

    I run r1concept rotors on mine which were ~$180 for all 4 shipped I believe. Slotted and drilled. Been on there a few years with zero issues.

    180 is not bad. And slotted are cheaper than drilled and slotted.
    Where did you get em?
    Or any link for that pls

    Other thing I wanted to ask. I like the ctsv calipers could I use em on my car with the stock size rotors or they have to be from the ctsv?

    Last year I got drilled and slotted rotors and high performance ceramic pads from ebay for 275 for all pads and rotors. I have had no issues from them at all. I would say go for it, no reason to pay more for them if you don't have to.

    The only rotors I would buy off eBay are the R1 Concepts rotors. They have a good track record. Other than that, you could be getting just about anything, and its most likely garbage.

    Also check out the WS6 Store, they have some good deals on rotors as well, and now carry black zinc plated ones.

    I've been running drilled rotors for years. Never had an issue.

    Corvette Z06's come stock with cross drilled rotors. They are fine to use.

    The EBC Red Stuff Ceramic pads are good. I've had them on the rear of my car for years, and they have performed very well. Very low dust and quiet too.

    If you want to do the CTS-V upgrade, here is the thread:

    Its much more complicated than just bolting on calipers, you have to do the whole conversion.

    Thanks for the info man.
    I found some caliper cts v on eBay for $400
    And the rotors for $250.
    Where can I find the other pieces o need ? Or the kit whatever I need.
    Other question. I have the zo6 17x9.5 in the front. Do I need a bigger rim?

    I got a set of slotted/drilled of ebay 3 yrs ago and their still good and on my 3rd set of pads. I paid $180 for the 4 rotors no pads. I would say anything under $150 for just rotors would probably be too cheap.

    My car has had the Powerslot cross drilled rotors for about 40k miles now. They are worn the hell now, but they last this long. I had EBC red-stuff pads with them and they were great. Low dust and hardly any noise. It stopped very great might I add. I think this time I will go with the Brembo cross-drilled and Hawk pads just to try them out. I don't know though, I might go back to EBC only if it is the red-stuff. BTW cross drilled rotors will hold up if they are made out of some good quality material. If your shit is made in China then your most likely S.O.L. Typically cross drilled is just for show, but they do also provide cooling benefits. Slotted do the same but also can clean your pads of dirt etc. Like the one guy said cross drilled rotors are on the Z06, ZR1, Ferrari's, and Lambo's for a reason.

    The reason is for show. With modern brake pads there is no benefit to slotted/drilled. Several car manufacturers have actually said that, Porsche and AMG being 2 off the top of my head.

    Bigger is better and quality pads make a difference but slotted and drilled are for show.

    They drill holes to give the heat a way to escape during breaking. Less heat buildup = less brake fade which = better stopping. People say putting holes in the rotors weakens the integrity of it, but only if you buy cheap Chinese crap. In the end they are not for show, Bikes, and high performance cars have them for a reason, and that is... Performance.

    I have checked out R1 Concepts and my friend/former manager suggests that site as well. I might be ordering from them in the future.

    Thanks to everybody for the help and the good info.
    I think in just gonna keep the stock calipers. And since many of you said drilled rotors are safe I'll try em out. If they are for sale it's for a reason.
    They should be inspected or abythin b4 sale em.
    Ut I really like the look of the slotted only.
    But the best price I found are the drilled and slotted so I'll just go for them.
    And on pads I'll try the ebc pads. So they can match the red calipers
