    Drilled rotors will crack.
    Brembo doesn't recommend them (but will sell them).


    I will be putting Brembo blanks on my car.

    What the heck is a Brembo blank? A fake rotor?

    OEM replacement.

    No drilling, no slots.
    High performance rotors that look like the stockers.

    Thanks for the tip, guys.

    My rotors were replaced under warranty at 35K miles. Now, at 62 K, I'm getting that vibration when I step on the brakes at high speed.

    Hopefully, these will last longer than the factory units.

    Rear C-5 rotors will not fit on a F-body without changing the whole parking brake assem. Do a search on C-5 conversion kit...

    Hell yes that's a big price difference-you just got some Brembos that cost about $560 more than the cost of the Brembo blanks!

    If I were you though, I'd sell those & get the Brembo blanks, leaving you some extra cash in your pocket.....the blanks will hold up MUCH better than those drilled Brembos! Plus, Brembo & TireRack both make a point to say NOT to use drilled rotors on the street if you have race compound brake pads. And if you plan on going to the track, forget about those drilled rotors (disclaimer from Brembo/TireRack):

    "IMPORTANT REMINDER: Slotted, drilled or dimpled rotors offered as OEM replacements should not be considered appropriate for high-speed track use.

    While grooved, drilled and slotted rotors offer an enhanced appearance and add some resistance to the boundary layer of gasses that can build up between the pad and rotor, they are not designed to withstand the extreme temperatures that are produced on the racetrack. If they are used on the track, it is very important that the rotors be carefully inspected and should not be driven on if even minor signs of deterioration are seen. Note, too, that if any products are used on the track they are not warrantable."

    those brembos you got only cost 210-220 for a pair. And you should have nothing to worry about damage to the rotors. They should be fine for the street use, and unless you are auto crossin I wouldn't worry about cracking the rotors.

    Sell them, make a profit. Or do the right thing, and contact whomever you ordered them from.


    From Brembo...not exactly their words....
    Brembo's drilled rotors come with specific warnings about not being for racing applications. Basically, they are for looks on the street only. They will crack at the holes and fail under hard use. If Brembo's will do this, what do you think ebay cheapies will do? If you want good rotors that actually can handle some abuse and look a bit better, get the Brembo slotted and coated rotors. They aren't cheap, but like you said, you get what you pay for. Tire rack sells them for a decent price.

    i bought the 169$ drilled and sloted ones from the ws6 store and i hate em. they make all kinds of noise and i think they are warped allready with only a few thousand miles on them. i also added hawk brake pads but i swear the stock brakes worked better.

    HOGWASH!!!!, maybe CHEAP drilled rotors will, for the price you guys are quoteing, that's what you are getting.

    I have Baer Eradespeed (sp) rotors (drilled and slotted) both front and rear, and I have had no problems with them whatsoever, I paid $735 at the time and they came with sets of Hawk HPS pads.
