Where are these parts manufactured? I am going to guess China.

They have only a 90 day warranty on cracking, (and you pay the shipping there and back), which just to let you know is common problem with drilled brake rotors.

You wont receive any better braking power except at the absolute limit, as in going road racing.

There is no listed warranty on the brake pads at all. Doesn't state if they are semi-metallic, organic, ceramic or what have you.

There is a 15% restocking fee on all returns and the customers pays for shipping on a return. Not so with a local auto parts store.

Also can't seem to find a company web site to get more information. Just a suite number to some place in California. Seems very back door and shady.

You asked for opinions/advice and so looking at the big picture, this doesn't seem like a very good deal.


well i only got the front put on today cuz i ran outa time and im doing the back tommrow after work. ill post pic after im done, so far there doing great. it seams to b quicker wth stoping but i wont no yet cuz i waiting for them to break n b4 i got 150 lol

$200 worth of brake parts, just sitting outside on a step, waiting for someone to steal them? :shock:

Just for comparison purpsoses, I went to --> Advance Auto Parts and looked up the prices they have.

Four rotors, (with a 2 year warranty vs a 90 day warranty), 2 sets of brake pads, (with a lifetime warranty vs no warranty), came to $217.94, vs. $189 for the same thing with a 90 day warranty on the brake rotors and no warranty on the brake pads. That's only a $28.94 difference. If the lifetime warranty ever has to be used, (likely if you keep the car), you don't have to pay for shipping at Advance Auto Parts either and you can get the parts the same day, vs having to wait.

Also, if the 90 day warranty brake rotors need warrantying during that time and you have to ship them back for replacement, (you have to pay for shipping, so there goes the $28.94 "savings"!), your car is out of action while you wait and wait. No such problem with buying a part from Advance Auto Parts or Auto Zone.

Auto Zone, had the same deal for $225.94 --> AutoZone.com | Vehicle Selection | Year
