aftermarket rotors

Aloha,

What do you guys think of aftermarket break rotors? The local parts house has them for about a third of the cost from the dealer! Is there a GOOD reason for that price? I drive quite conserivitively and have not yet even tested the ABS. I used aftermarket rotors on my MB in the past and they were ok. I think that I will still use dealer pads.

Thanks Ed

Attack of the SLS! Noooooo

Anyway, I have head no complaints about Autozone type rotors. Everyone I know who put them on their Caddy thought they were as good as stock. Personally I went the other direction and got cross drilled performance rotors for my Deville. Every time I hit the brakes I am happy I got them, though they were about $125/ea. They also look much better if you plan on getting larger rims later on. I have 18s on mine and with the painted calipers they look great. If you are sticking with stock the cheaper ones are probably best.

Ed,

First I have to say that caddy of yours looks sharp. Can tell you baby it. Since you have a very "easy" driving style and haven't even triggered the ABS, you could probably get away with most after market rotors and be pleased. Once again, great looking car.

Why are you replacing the rotors? Are they worn to the discard dimension or are you experiencing pedal roughness/pulsing?

If it's just pulsation/roughness, just have them turned to clean them up and reinstall them.
