Question Which Pads/Rotors to get

Hello,

I will be attempting to do my brakes on my Santa Fe. I'm not sure of which ones to get. I have been looking on 2 websites. The First is Canadian Tire and the second is Rockauto. If I go with CT my costs for 4 rotors and pads will be about $340.95. Brake rotors are Certified, rear pads are OE-Spec Wagners and the front pads are ATE PremiumOne Ceramic. On RockAuto I went with Centric C-Tek Standard Rotors (#013) and Wagner QuickStop pads (ZD864 / ZD813). RockAuto price with shipping is $262.90. I don't know all that much about pads and rotors and am hoping for a little help with what to get.

Thanks in advance!

I have used the Canadian tire certified in the past and they are good. Wait until they have their 2 for 1 special.

My rear brakes and rotors seem to have gone out unusually early. I just ordered a pair of Centric standard C-Tek rotors for my Sonata. The reviews I've read were mixed, but definatley more to the positive side. I was torn between the "standard" and "premium" rotors. The main difference is a coating which keeps down rusting on the rotor. Otherwise they're of the same specs, and from what I've read alot of people like the premiums. It seemed like people who had visible rotors thru they're wheels seemed to prefer the Premiums to keep away unsightly rust, while others who didn't mind the rust showing were fine with the Standard rotors. I also ordered the Centric Posi-quiet brakes with them. It should arrive this weekend. We'll see how it goes.

I use the Centric Premium rotors for front and rear on all the cars I maintenance for friends/family. The C-Tek is nice, but for a few bucks more I like the e-coating on the rotor hat that comes with the premium variant. It just looks better and holds up extremely well.

As for pads I use the Centric Posi-Quiet Ceramics for front and rear. These things are super quiet, have good bite and low brake dust. Also, I noticed on the last couple of sets of these pads I ordered that Centric was including new hardware so it saved me cleaning up the old pieces.

I've ordered many many things through Rockauto and haven't had a negative experience yet. If you go that route use the following code to save an additional 5%: 2

I also ordered thru RockAuto. You may be able to save a few bucks watching which warehouse each item ships from. The shipping can really start to add up when multiple item ship from different warehouses. Darn wish I knew about this code earlier... awsome for you to share it!

I replaced the rotors and pads on my 2005 2.7L SantaFe some years ago after the OEMs wore out prematurely. I bought Satisfied Pro ceramic VS pads from amazon. These are D3EA certified whereas most auto parts are self certified and not lab certified. I can tell you that I am really satisfied with these pads. They are great, low noise, low dust and much better stopping distance than the OEM ones.
For the rotors, I hated the unsightly rusty look of the OEMs and ordered galvanized rotors from an online supplier by the name of brake performance. If you request they can supply plain (non drilled) rotors galvanized. These haven't rusted or warped so far and look much cleaner and better.

Brakes

I don't know about everyone else, but I end up doing a brake job every year. (city car) You can go on and on about the quality of rotors, (they are all made in China, probably at the same plant, just different prices and box art) argue about pad composition, ( metallic pads- will ruin your wheels with dust, and cover the sides of your car with rust, ceramic pads work good surely, but not all the time, and at more money, that leaves "organic", (read asbestos,) still the best ALL AROUND friction material at all levels. And the cheapest. End opinion, just replace them with the basics, they are a consumable item, and lets face the facts, NONE of us will be racing our Hyundais in any major events that will need competition brakes that will be able to stop repeatedly from over 100 mph. What is important is the operation of the calipers, and the condition of the fluid, which no one ever flushes. If you can check the temperature of your rotors after a drive with a temp probe, and you will see that at least one of your original calipers is not or nearly not working. Caliper condition, and fluid is the most important, not whose pads you are using.

I went with Brembo rotors (China) and Akebono pads.
I couldn't be happier. The wheels stay pretty clean and it stops well.
I would go with that combo again.
