Great part at a great price
I was having trouble breaking in the hills I live in and decided I need better discs and pads. I loved the price and they arrived a day earlier than I expected. I wouldn't have thought there was a big difference between dics and pads, but I now experience no brake fade or vibration. Great product. I will buy them again and I recommend these to family, friends and anyone who'll listen.

Fingers crossed
We went to the more expensive rotors with high hopes they last a little longer than all the others we've used. Living in the mountains is hard on the vehicles so hoping these last longer than the year the ones in the past have lasted.
