only thing I'm going to say is that you get what you pay for, if they were good then they wouldn't sell for $5 each. But if your looking for pricier ones then you might be ok

Are you talking about Brakemotiv out of Chicago? If so I don't have them on my mustang but have had them for 3 years on my 01 Denali XL with no issues. They are still looking great and firmed up my brake pedal alot.

I got a set of d+s rotors (non-zinc coated) from BrakeMasters or something like that on ebay. I think I paid about $130 for all 4. They looked nice but didn't perform any better than OEM rotors. Plus I hear the drilled holes make them more susceptible to cracking. If you're looking for new rotors but don't want to go OEM, consider just getting slotted rotors. They still look nicer than OEM rotors.

I bought a set of 4 rotors that included brake pads from BrakeLabs for my 2006 mustang. They looked and performed very well. Never had a problem with them.

Also, R1 Concepts are great, too. A couple of my friends have custom rotors from them.

I got 4 slotted ones(Zinc) off ebay with some hawk pads. they improved brakeing a bit but I still need to do ss lines. It was like $150 Get slotted and not drilled and slotted, as drilled tend to crack on even some good brands. My rottors still look brand new with no rust and they are 6 months old.

+1 to R1 concepts. I have their drilled/slotted rotors (factory diameter) and got hawk ferro-carbon pads from them. Great company to work with, and they custom make (so they say, no reason to doubt them) each order when placed.

As far as performance, you aren't going to notice a difference from stock rotors unless yours are in serious need of replacing. The looks is what you're getting, and they look great.

Other Ebay companys may be a bad idea. I wouldn't ever go for the cheapest price, as its probably the cheapest product.

I've had these for AT LEAST 30k and no issues.

Hawk pads are the shit, I have them and perform really good. I started with Duralast Gold and they vibrated and squealed like a motha! I say stick to OEM rotors. You dont NEED rotors with little holes in them

I'm actually suprised to hear all the cheaper brake stories on here....but even brakes like summit are sketchy at times. I've seen a full set of summit rotors come warped from the factory.... right now I am running power stop cross drilled and slotted on my mdx with carbon powerstop pads(powerstop is the low end hawk subbrand.) They stop on a dime compared to stock rotors can't wait to see how they do with towing
