Default Recommendations for front brake rotors - '94 GS-R



I am looking to replace my front rotors on my GS-R soon. I did the
rears last summer and found the stock Honda parts to be a little
pricey.

Does anyone have a recommendation for parts of equal (or better)
quality for less money?

I can't tell you what to go with but I can tell what not to go with. I
tried some name brand cross-drilled rotors. The holes were ball milled to
help prevent cracking. After a few months of my street driven Accord the
rotors were cracking from the holes.

Gordon,
I have a 97 accord and the rotors are a pain to replace; so
I bought what claims to be a better rotor and went with Ray-
bestos "professional grade". I was not looking for a racing rotor,
just something hopefully better that even stock. I got mine at
PEP boys.

So far, so good. After only after 5k, still good. Been down a long
mountain road too.

I've been pretty happy with OEM replacement Brembo rotors on my 91
Integra. No fancy cross drilling or slotting on them, held up well.

I've got about 120,000km on my Brembo Cross Drilled rotors. They're on their
third (and probably last) set of pads (front). Perhaps on another car they
wouldn't last as long, but it doesn't take much braking force to bring a 98
Civic hatch to a halt. I paid $550 for them about 3.5 years ago.

Yep I just replaced the rear rotors on my '99 Integra and got the OE Brembo
parts from here: http://www.importrp.com/home.html I had no trouble and
they shipped within 2 days - I went with 3-day shipping since I don't trust
UPS ground and didn't want to find them bent on delivery. Those are
definitely genuine Brembo parts - branded boxes/rotors and instruction
sheet.

Brembo OEM replacements.......likely the best.
DO NOT even think about the Autozone rotors. They used to stock the
Brembo's, but went with some cheap overseas pieces. I warped the rotors on
my 93 HB in under 5,000 miles.

PS I had the larger Teg brakes also.

Thanks everyone for your advice. I went with the Brembo OE rotors and
I will try the PBR Ultimate (ceramic/kevlar) pads. (I remember when
PBR was Pabst Blue Ribbon.)

Raybestos is coming out with a line of drilled rotors for the sport compact
market, along with appropriate pads. These are designed for street use and might
fit your needs well. Expect them to be significantly less expensive than a
drilled Brembo, but a little more than Professional Grade Raybestos.
