Arrow Brakes and Rotors

Hello Forum members,

Yesterday I went to the dealership. And they asked me to change the brake rotors and pads as they found some hotspots. I changed my factory brake pads to hawk performance track 5.0 once at 15,000 miles and now they are done and dusted at 31,000.
Factory rotors are $2000 for front 2 whereas power stop is selling the front 2 rotors at $850 and I am also getting the pads with an additional payment of $180. The Z26 pads.
Factory pads are $445
Total factory set up is $2445
Total power stop set up is $950

Do you have any other recommendation for Brake rotors and pads set up that you have used before and loved it And of course which would be better than factory rotors and brake pads?


What do you recommend?

I also will need new tires. I thought of going with staggered setup. I was thinking of buying wheels for the rear but I got a pair of rear wheels exactly the same as our factory but not forged wheels. They are asking $221 each. 20x10.5.
The dealership said they can fit 305s into stock wheels but I think it would be better if I go for 20x10.5.

Stock factory Forged wheels with 9.5s OR replica wheels 10.5s but not forged?

I would recommend getting a Tazer as well so you can use the ABS system for linelock...that way you are easier on your rear brakes during burnouts.

I agree but right now I will need to change my front rotors, do you recommend factory ones or any aftermarket?

Check out the DBA (Disk Brakes Australia) web site. I have them on my fronts and real happy. Decent pricing too. Think I purchased mine from Speedlogix.

I tried the Z26 pads and are great for low dust but be aware the performance/bite isn't quite as good as Brembo. If you don't have 6 piston calipers, I'd seriously consider Akebono pad products. They unfortunately are not making 6 piston pads yet.

The OEM price for brakes and rotors is excessive. I would buy the Power Stops.

Also, if you go with 305 tires, use a 10.5 inch wheel. The widest tire that will wear and perform properly on a 9.5 inch wheel is a 275.

You can't go wrong with the DBA or the Powerstop rotors. We've talked about this many times here. As of our last round of discussions, DBA was winning the price wars. Unlike Powerstop, DBA also offers the option of just buying the outer rotors and bolting them to your own OEM hats. This is a money saver. As you know know, the 6 piston Brembo's have two piece rotors: the cast iron outer ring and the aluminum inner "hat." Powerstop had no intent to offer these items separately as of the last time I spoke with them on the phone about a year ago.

Speaking with experience with my current 07' R/T (19' scat pack ordered) - I would recommend Centrix rotors. Power Stop just uses and rebrands Centrix rotors (discovered this a few years ago when doing lengthy research on what rotors to pick up). The Centrix rotors are solid. Put them on with a Pro Cut Lathe and you'll be happy you did. They lasted me a solid 80-90k miles and performed well. Now they are warped (the last time I changed my pads, they used a Pro Cut Lathe, and told me they were down to the last bit of the rotor and could barely get them to surface).

I currently run the Power Stop pads. I like them. I wasn't a fan of the Hawk - they never shut the **** up and were excessively dirty.

I would bet that the brembo pads are badass - and you could get away with Centrix rotors. Just my thoughts.

Quick question.

1. Are there 2 front rotors for $749?
2. Are the brake pads ceramic and stop brake dust?

Power stop is providing 2 fronts with power stop z26 pads for $950.
