high performance brakes

I'm thinking of this brake rotor and pad kit. Any one have any input? Ever tried upgrading from stock? Session Timeout

Uh...


Your link is faulty.


And what vehicle were you thinking of upgrading?

Not sure what you're looking at or what you plan to put it on. I off-road a lot with heavily modified jeep with lots of 1/4" steel armor added in addition to bigger tires and wheels. The added weight and larger tires means stock brakes become very scary trying to stop at highway speeds.


If you are upgrading disk brakes to larger rotors and pads make sure you also get calipers with dual piston so they can apply even pressure across the pad instead just the middle.

Don't go cheap on the pads, performance pads can make a big difference. Make sure to follow the break in procedures for the pads to get the best performance.

I went with Hawk SD on my TV and did notice a difference. I did not upgrade the rotors as they were in very good shape. Follow the directions on bedding as most performance pads need to bed correctly or will not perform as advertised.

Also you should flush out your brake fluid to keep it at top perfomance every three years.

After trying semi metalic for years, I've converted to ceramic. They hardly fade at all, dust is about non-factor and wear is incredible. They are also easier on rotors. Yes, expensive but also the best IMHO. They may not "bite" as well initially, but they are consistent. I have used Magnum and the Autozone ceramics. As I was buying rotors anyway, I got some ebay drilled rotors and they look cool and vent the pads (its not for cooling btw) and a set has lasted 60k on my van and still are good, along with the pads. not my TV but still.

Sorry, I thought I could copy and paste the shopping cart.....I have a gmc sierra 2500 hd duramax Ill try this link. I was thinking of the 4 wheel set with semi-metalics for $421. Oh, and it looks like the ceramic pads are the same price as the semi-metallics. Who besides Dirk likes ceramic better? Premium Dimpled & Slotted Brake Kit

I had the slotted and dimpled (all four) on my 06 F250 SD, they made a difference in stopping and it seemed like the pads lasted a lot longer. I had the semi metallic pads on mine.

Ceramic or Ferra-carbon are the best options for heat disipation and lower instances of brake fade.

Metallic are less prone to heat fade. I personally run EBC yellow pads and may look into their extra duty truck pads when the time comes.

check the specs of the pads he is looking at they state that their semi metallic are less prone to fade, not their ceramic
