New Rotor Help!!

I bought new EBC slotted ultimax rotors from my 95 325i sedan last year along with green stuff brake pads. Now when i drive above 40mph and brake the steering wheel shakes. Ive been told that my rotors are warped, which really bothers me. Its time to change my pads and was wondering what is a good brand of slotted rotors i can get for my car. Are the ones that bavauto offers for $159.00 for a set good? I dont want to get the same rotors again even though ive heard EBC was good. Also what are good pads to get for my car as well. I dont drive like a maniac but like to have good braking when im doing "spirited" driving as EBC says. Please help as i need to change them within the next week. Thanks

Are you sure it's a possible warped rotor? It might be something like a loose tie-rod end...

I have had Akebono Ceramic pads on my car for the last year & a half.....& no problems....very low dust, no squeal, & very rotor friendly....as for the rotors, I have the cross drilled from TMS for about 3 months now & no problems.....very good quality at a great price......


FCP Gronton & bimmerzone.com have the akebono cermanics.....
