Default Aftermarket rotors for 2000 Honda Accord

Does anyone have experience with aftermarket disc rotors? I drive faster
than I should and the stock rotors eventually warp. Do cross drilled rotors
reduce warpage without compromising the structural integrity of the rotor?
What about curved rotor vaneing as opposed to the factory straight rotor
vanes?



Thanks in advance for all the input.

Brembo is now an OEM supplier to Honda. You might try their products.

it's not heat that warps your rotors bud, it's rust and bad torque
procedure. put a little antiseize on the rotor cap after you've scraped
off the rust, both inside and outside. use a scraper blade, not emery
paper. torque in 2 or more stages, 1324, 1324.

no.

not really. go to the circuit. there's the old farts [you know, the
ones with experience] winning races on standard undrilled straight vane
disks. in theory, curved vanes are better, but half the time, i see
monkeys with them installed the wrong way around, so i really doubt
you'll see any difference.

One can install rotors outside-in?

no, if the vanes are curved, they have a left and right side - they
frequently get switched.

Right now our Accord has Brembo replacements up front which are about
30k miles used and still doing great. I recently replaced the rear
rotors with Raybestos brand PG Plus, their premium standard design
rotor. So far these are working brilliantly as well. I'm using
Raybestos Quiet Stop ceramic formula pads all around and the car stops
butter smooth and whisper quiet. Ah, lovely. These pads also don't
make as much black dust as the original Honda ones did.

I don't know about abusive driving and cross drilled rotors. I don't do
the first and have never tried the second.
