Hi Mike ... I'll let you know in a couple of months the truck is still in storage .
I did the ebc rotors with hawk ceramic brake pads all around so it should be better .

Thanks for putting the pic's up ...

Very nice Larry, that's what I would like some day, black rotors.

Did you get the lights in, so you can tell me the wires to splice into. lol

The black is just a protective coating it will be gone the first time I apply the brakes.

As for the lights I have no idea how to wire them up . I am going to need some help with them for sure ...

Shoot me the wiring diagram and I can let you guys know.


Brakes look nice!
How much did it run you?
What's the specs? Race? Heavy upgrade? Mild ?

Hey Travis ... They are not a full on race rotor . But they are a Sport rotor which I think would stand up to some aggressive driving if needed . The groves allow more air to to pass thru the pads and for the disc to cool better . The dimples help to disperse gases and prevent brake fade . I also wanted to improve the overall look of he wheels .

The cost for the front / rear rotors / front /rear ceramic pads 775.00 + shipping . I was able to negotiate a little on he shipping and I had 15% discount from a past purchase .

are the rotors coated (ie) zinc to prevent corrosion? or will all the black come off.

The black surface area that is in contact with the pads will come off . The cooling fins and the hub will remain black. These area's are protected from corrosion . The rotors should remain corrosion free ... Time will tell .
