I was thinking about getting some aftermarket rotors and pads. I saw a pair of drilled/slotted rotors on ebay for $80 a pair. I have had alot of problems with warping my rotors because of driving through deep water or mud in the past. My question is, should I get the cheap rotors off of ebay, get some good rotors for not much more than factory ones, or just stick with the stockers? I would also like to hear any experiences with good aftermarket brake companies (i.e. brembo) like how long they lasted and such.

Thanks,
Teddy

Common on Tacos, the culprit is usually overtightening of the lugs. After my last balance I think they torqued them to 200 ft*lbs instead of 83 ft*lbs, caught it a week or two later when I took off my wheels for painting. Took my 200 lb frame standing on the lug wrench to loosen them... :mad:

I had the stock toyota rotors for about 65,000 miles from new. They didn't warp at all. Since then, I have gone through 2 sets of meinekie rotors and am now on my third. Each pair was gone in like 30,000 miles.

People have very good reviews for the powerstop rotors and pads that wheelers sells.. They are not cheap though.. I will be getting some soon!

I have 86,000 miles on my original rotors and pads, and they will probably make it to 100k. I would consider staying with OEM.

One of my other reasons for getting aftermarket rotors and pads is for towing. OEM stuff scares me sometimes.

i have over 160k on my stock rotors... they do finally need turned but look pretty good overall. stock pads lasted till 120k and i have since changed them with autozone pads and then again with napa pads and they seem to be doing better.
