Anyone ever use powerstop z16 ceramics or stoptech street performance? Do they have good bite in cold temps? I'd get hawks pads but rockauto doesn't carry them and the exchange rate is horrid to buy from knsbrakes.

Centric blanks premium and non premium the same only difference is the premium has painted hub?

      I have a set of StopTech Street Performance. They are alright, better than OEM.

      I would check out www.usautoparts.net for rotors.

        x2 for Speedfactor. Price I got from them was better than buying from the US with the exchange rate and before shipping.

          I called speedfactor earlier and they quoted me a much cheaper price than online. Also recommended stoptechs as well for much cheaper and is low dust. Still deciding but for sure will go with speed factor when I make my decision.

            Yes thanks for the link. It's similar prices to rockauto, but shipping is twice as much. My order (4 rotors f/r pads) would be $575 with shipping, rockauto is $300 with shipping for same items.

              Wow. Which rotors are you looking at?

              Why not use the cheapest rotor you can buy?

                  Check with CTR auto parts. They are by far the cheapest in town.

                    My bad.

                    I gave you guys the wrong website url. The correct url is www.usautoparts.net

                    What about the brand "Replacement"? It looks like they are the cheapest rotor brand. Unless you know something crazy/special about the brand Centric? I have never heard of them before.

                      Np, you had the correct link on your first post. The replacement brand is not available for my car. I've read that Centric brand are good. I believe there are some STi drivers that have them on this site. Thats where I first heard of it.
