    rotors and brakes

    so im looking at rotors so that it gives my car a cleaner look....
    the stock one always rust after a fresh bath...so i was figuring that drilled/slotted rotors would help tip off the appeal of the car.
    LMPerformance has...
    Baer DecelaRotors for $439 a set.
    Brembo for $450.
    Royalty $390.
    ive heard of brembo but...what do you guys thing. i am favoring Royalty and plus theyre the cheapest.
    will these work without modifications and with C5/C6 Z06 wheels 17x9.5s with 54 offset?

    also what would be the best way/best paint to use on brake calipers?
    i was thinking red but if its alot of trouble should i just go ahead and replace the calipers? i figure painting them shouldnt be too challenging

    rockauto.com. You will find the royalty rotors for a much lower price.btw I put the royalty rotors on my 02 t/a a few months back and they are awesome,mine are combined with the monroe ceramic pads,I think I paid $490 total for the pads and rotors (front and rear with shipping)

    Your local parts store should carry "Caliper Paint", its just a High temp paint. Its easy to paint them, just remove the tire, remove the caliper and clean good and spray some paint on it, ensure not to paint the pads or piston boot.
    As far the the Rotors rusting Personaly on all my F-Body's i just kept the stockers and sanded and painted the center of the rotor, no more rust and gives it a clean look. Just use a High Temp Paint.

    Baer abd Brembo are top notch - for the extra 40 to 60 bucks I'd go that route. Drilled and slotted will create more dust - fyi. And BTW, as stated above, painting rotors with high temp paint is easy.

    Well ill be getting black rims and i have to clean my car once a week so dust shouldnt be a concern. But ill probably get royalty or baer. These will fit stock calipers right?

    If you buy rotors for an f-body they will clear the calipers. I got some napa's and they surprisingly have held up fine. Wasn't to thrilled about them but people who road race there cars often use the napa's for track days, so if it's good enough for them it good enough for mine.
