I'm seriously looking at getting these rotors.... what are the pros/cons to these rotors and are they worth the money?
Ceramics are good pads but performance is not their key attribute, what they are good at is being quiet and the dust is colored so that it is not very noticable. Just because something is new and more expensive doesn't make it better, neither does the parts store jockies word. On this forum most of us are enthusiasts that is why we are here, we are looking for different things than the average driver. The quiet and low dust visibility properties of ceramic make them an upgrade for the average person, for us we want performance first to get that we are likely to tolerate a little noise, slightly more dust, maybe lesser rotor life, or slightly less cold braking in order to gain maximum bite in other conditions.So just keep the rotors and go with something like a ceramic brake pad?
Are you surprised?... with these 22's, the car does not want to stop like it did with the stocks
Todd, I have to disagree with the above statement. So we will have to agree to disagree.If you want more 'power' you need either;
More piston area
Better brake pads
Same weight, smaller wheel = better braking and acceleration.... the weight of the rim? ... not too much heavier
