Default '99 CR-V Rotors, Brembo or Genuine Honda?

I'm looking at Brembo at Tirerack at around $34 each and Genuine Honda
at around $75 each.

Is the Brembo ok to use or should I stear clear and go with the Honda
rotors? Comments please, TIA.

i use brembo. they're high quality and meet oem standards, unlike some
of the other after-market stuff out there.

Brembo gets my vote. I replaced the vibramatic factory rotors on my '03
Accord with Brembo rotors when there were about 20k miles on the car.
Now at 55k miles the brakes still stop beautifully with no vibration.

Thanks Jim, Rich and John.

I'm going to go with with the Brembo rotors and Honda pads.

I recently replaced my front brakes with Brembo rotors and Akebono ceramic
pads on my '88 Civic. They work great, smooth and quiet. The only problem
was that I had to retrain my foot since it was used to compensating for the
old warped rotors. Fortunately, foot retraining didn't take too long!

I went from OEM rotors to Honda OEM rotors with a replacement pads that
were issued by Honda as new and improved pad over the OEM pad. What a
joke. The first rotors and pads lasted 46,000 KM. The seconds set of
OEM rotors with the new and improved front pads warped the rotors in
15,000km. I drove that way until about 90,000km, then bought and
installed Brembo rotors and OEM pads. The Brembo rotors felt good for
80,000km, and soon after that warping started to show. I now have
225,000Km and I am going to buy Bremo rotors again (since they cost the
same as Honda rotos), but a better pad (akibono or equiv) should be
used. The OEM pad generates too much heat i.e. beyond what the rotor is
designed for, which warps the rotors permanently.

Hope this helps.
