    Power stop rotors

    Im looking for some new rotors and I like the look of the Power Stop Rotors at Autoanything.com. The price is great, but it has me thinking is it too cheap.

    Just wondering if anyone has any experience with Power Stop Rotors and what they think of them.

    I don't drive that hard just looking for an appearance upgrade and maybe a little better braking/less rust when it sits because I don't drive it that often anymore

    Thanks for the help

    I just ordered a set of brakemotive rotors who are made by the same company. After lots of research I found that tons of people run them with no issues.

    all the specs seem the same how much different can they be. I'm a little skeptical because I've have autozone rotors before that warped really fast.

    I know guys on other forums running these on auto cross courses with racing pads and they have no issues. They are pretty thick compared to the other stuff that is out there which is what got my attention. I'm going to be using them for the exact same things and if I do manage to warp one "which is unlikely" I'm not out a boat load of money to replace one either.

    My exact setup is brakemotive rotors "power stop", ceramic pads on the street, and hawk HP+ pads on the track.

    I've run powerstop disks on another car while I was in Germany. Lots of high speed braking on the autobahn and never had a problem. Just so we've said it, don't go cheap on the pads, they make or break how good or how poor your system will perform.

    Bingo. Pads will make or break your setup...
