Hey guys, I have not been around in a while(computer has been out of commission). I need to buy new brake pads and rotor today and need some advice. I am going with the ATE Power Disk rotors from turnermotorsport.com and am leaning towards the Axxiss/PBR Ultimates for pads. I am just replacing the front as those are the only ones that need it and do not have money for a big brake kit or anything.

What pads are everyone using? Does anyone have any info on pads in general?

i've always used OE brembo x-drilled rotors with EBC greenstuff pads and had excellent results. only complaint is if you auto-x or have to stop from like 100-0 they smell, uhm, distinctly. kinda like fish.


other then that never had a better stopping pad for the street. (there are more agressive ones if you plan to race though)

I think I have decided on a set of Axxis Ultimate pads and ATE Power disk rotors. From what have found I just need to follow the break in procedure and then go easy on them for 500 miles and they should be fine. I have read alot of places about people with all kinds of pads having problems because they did not break them in properly. I will let you guys know what I think after I buy them and get them on. By the way anyone kow if any sites have free or cheap shipping going on right now. I wanted to buy from turnermotorsport.com since I have bought from them in the past but they want $40 for shipping-ground. That is a little high if you ask me.

Depends on what the total package deal costs you. StreetBeatCustoms offers free shipping but their base price might be higher than what you're paying from Turner. Here's a link: StreetBeatCustoms. You'll just have to price it out and see if it's what you want.

I got the Ultimates all around with Turner Motor sport x-drilled for my rears and they all work fuckign awesome. The pads are ridiculously good and one of the best upgrades ive ever done. Brake dust is ridiculous for the first 50 miles or so.

Whats this 500 mile break in period you are talking about? I thought the break in period is only 100 miles max?


But yeah, go with the PBR AXXIS Ultimates. Awesome pads. As far as rotors go, the ATE are good, but TMS also has their own brand which is really good.
