Question Should I These Pads & Rotors?

Can't find too many reviews for this brand on sedans, want to know if anyone has any experience with them?





Thanks

Look into EBC Green pads. great pad, much better stopping power than OEM, last a long time, easy to seat into older rotors if your not replacing them or surfacing. Available at most on line stores for about $ 30.00.

Ive used them on my last 4 cars and will use them on my Sonata when time to replace

I got Centrics from RockAuto for both my Accent and my Scion and I like them. I got the premium rotors


and Posi-Quiet pads



and the stopping power is great.

I used to work for CarQuest and used to know what the brands were but they're owned by Advanced Auto now and I don't know nothin'

I've used whearever ceramics in the past with good results. Their blank rotors are on par with just about every other standard brand out there.

$30 for a set of four brake pads? Sounds like a great deal. I've looked at brake and rotors kits for the sedans and they are only like $140 a kit of drilled/slotted rotors and pads. I was thinking of upgrading, but replacement pads seem to call my name more in the 'keep it simple' department. Let me find them so I can link them in here.

EDIT: here's a picture of the ones I've been looking at, but I'm afraid of these "performance" parts on our 4 banger cars. Anyone want to chime in and just tell me to replace my pads? (Currently at 103k miles with original pads and rotors)

Pads:
Performance pads typically just mean that they work better at very high temperatures typical with racing, and not ever typical with city driving. So you will actually make your braking performance for situations when you need it worse by buying racing pads. Here's some other additional info:


Rotors:
In short, the only reason to buy upgraded rotors is for looks, you won't get anything great out of them for city driving.

I would personally not buy drilled slotted rotors especially cheap ones. Somebody else posted this set a while back. Looks like a good value.

Rotors already? Unless you are using the car for uber, and your rotors are pulsating when braking, I don't think you need a new set for a 1 year old car.

Pads on the other hand, if its due - worn down to service limit usually 2mm, then its due. My go to pads are AZ duralast pads. Whether I need ceramic - cmax, or just the organic, I have used both, get a set from them once and its free replacement for as long as you own the car. Its a great deal. They are the only local auto parts store that does it. Performance on either pads are also oem quality. I can't really think of any reason for not using them. Particularly if you are a diyer. When they come to their senses and stop doing it, only then I might go somewhere else for brake pads.

If you feel you must replace your rotors or like replacing rotors often, always get the solid ones. Never the slotted or drilled. AZ have good deals if you are getting pads and rotor sets. I have used rotors from fastsource autoparts -ebay seller, and been very happy with it - half the price of any local.

So did you use the one I screenshotted above? I am thinking about grabbing them, but I've heard they do squeak a little more than the OEM rotors.
