    should i buy these and will they fit on my car???

    i ran into this guy where i work and he said he has some drilled and slotted rotors w/some 6 piston calipers. he said he has a ws6 and they wont fit with his stock rims. i have a ws6 with some 18'' 06 zo6 rims on it. he said they will fit behind my rims cause they are bigger and have more clearance. is he full of shit, do u guys think they will fit? he's selling them for 200$!!, in the box brand new never used!!

    What's wrong with drilled and slotted rotors?

    They crack and you have less contact from the pad on the rotor.

    Slotted isn't as bad, but drilled rotors crack.
    If you road race or AutoX...I can see slotted rotors. If not, OEM style.
    I run stock brakes on my car. Stops fine.

    are they stolen? Brake kit like that would run a few G's. May as well snatch it up.

    Stop nicely I assume?? Congrats on the find.


    I wouldn't be able to run those brakes though on my car with my 15" wheels (skinnies).

    thanks tonic, and yes mr.luos they stop very nice. the pedal is really sesitive, i know i dont even need that much stopping power, and i probably will never use it to its full capabilities but it's a nice appearance mod as well.
