Positive Mold Technology

Positive Mold Technology improves durability and performance by allowing for even wear. High density, low resin friction material virtually eliminates brake fade and glazing, generates less brake dust, and promotes a longer-lasting , better performing brake pad.

OE Grade Multi-Layer Shim

OE Grade Multi-Layer Shim helps reduce vibration and noise

Environmentally Compliant

Certified Environmentally Compliant to "Better Brake Law" standards

Thermal Scorched

Pre-burnishing or "Thermal Scorching" is the final curing step in quality ceramic brake pad manufacturing. The brake pad's surface is heated to remove any uncured bonding agents and to stabilize the friction material to accelerate the break-in process and enhance stopping performance from the first stop.

Zinc Coated

Zinc Coated to help reduce rust and corrosion for a longer-lasting and better looking rotor

"True" Non-Interference Vane Design

"True" Non-Interference Vane Design retains the structural integrity of the rotor

CNC Cross Drilled and Slotted

Precision-Rounded End Slots are machined to remove brake dust and expel gasses during hard braking

Cross Drilled Holes improve ventilation and cooling for less brake fade and more positive stopping power

Pads and Rotor replacement
Excellent fit. These seem to work well on my 2005 Jeep Liberty CRD. Only have about a 1000 miles on them but great improvement over OEM.

Give Me a Brake!
I bought the Nakamoto disk brake kit for my 05 jeep liberty.These rotors are the drilled and slotted type that i had never used before because i thought t hey would be too exspensive.When i saw the price for the whole kit i thought WOW!! it would be stupid to look any further.After spending the bigger part of the day removing the crappy mopar strip o matic lug nuts i installed the brake kit and flushed and bled the brake fluid.These rotors not only look great im sure they will last a lot longer than standard rotors.Im just mad at myself for noy buying the same type for my 2012 GMC sierra.I paid almost 800.00 for a brake job on it.Wont happen again!!
