Well put, although I assume you meant "linear" rather than "liner".Don't bother turning OEM rotors. Either replace them, or take 220 grit sand paper and rough up the surface and take off any rust/wear ring.
I like the Hawk HPS front and rear, with sanded rotors. They have a nice liner feel with with OEM cold bite (10degrees outside). .....
Probably - the name brands are usually OK, as long as you're not canyon carving. For most day-to-day applications, it's a difference in feel rather than performance.Not totally. But somewhat. Not the best plan, but hard financial times can mean doing what works in the short run. Front pads for $50 right now are better than worn pads and the $100+ set I can't afford.
Yes and yes you are correct Scooby. You BS with the track guys enough they will all say the same thing. When you start replacing things with non OEM specs you create a cascade effect as other parts in the chain end up needing to be upgraded to non OEM spec to support the original non OEM spec part.Question. Not knowing a lot about brakes...other than they stop the car...okay I'm not that uninformed...but...isn't it better to replace with OEM pads seeing as they are made for the specs of the car, rotors, etc. Can mixing and matching rotors and pads lead to premature wear of one or the other...or both because they are not matched up for each other?
I have looked at after market parts, but unless it's an old clunker...and I have not had one of those since I used to drive the old VW bugs...I have always ended up going OEM. Never been disappointed with them. Are the performace gains from after market parts really worth it?
