Copy and pasted from another thread recently. I love them
I bought these recently and installed them. When I got them they were labelled as powerstop rotors and pads so I'm going to go out on a limb and say that my review is relleveant lol. I like them alot. The previous owner of my car used semi metallic pads on what im guessing were stock rotors and fairly well destroyed them. I got this set and had them installed in a jiffy ( right rear rotor was a b*tch to remove ). They bedded in incredibly quickly and without incident. I've yet to really beat on them as track season up here has pretty much drawn to a close but on the road they are smooth and easy to stop hard with. I'll be adding Russel Stainless brake line and Motul RBF600 brake fluid as soon as funds allow.

|2k2wranglerx||Yeah I can definitely hear them. But as I put miles on it's fading. at first it was really noticeable. enough that it concerned me a bit. But now I have to really listen to hear it.|

Yours are a little different than mine you have the double lined of drilled holes. Interesting. Glad to see they actually have different kits for different cars. Not just the same kit with different lug pattern. Glad you like them.
Yours a little noisy from the slots? Mine was, I've heard other Mazda owners say the same. But after the pads get broke in good it goes away. Except under hard braking you can hear it working.
I also noticed after a hard drive through the twisties you can smell the pads like they are new again. Letting you know the rotors are working like they should with the slots giving a good clean surface to bite onto.
Can't wait to take it down to deals gap in April.

I finally got them on. first impressions are good. after initial burn in there's definitely better braking. That could be from a more aggressive pad. Or maybe because they're new vs the beat old ones. But overall i'm happy.

I had this kit on my Envoy. Altima & Maxima. I liked them as far as performance. The last set I painted the rotor hats which helped with the rust. First two cars I didn't and there were small amounts of rust on a few rotors within a year. Granted I'm in northern IL and we get lots of salt in the winter.
That is my only complaint was the rotors did rust fairly fast.
