Great Brakes
Before buying my brakes, I had considered quite a few of different rotors and pads. Based on my research these were the best to use. I benefited from the how to videos and these brakes are fantastic. I had a steering wheel wobble that is completely gone now. I suspect that I had a warped rotor.
