They're probably parts that work, and if they work $155 is probably worth it. I went cheapo on my front brakes recently and have no complaints, they're definitely good for another 50K miles and stop well. I'd suggest you look around Rockauto also, you could probably put together a setup from reputable brands for equal money.

I'd pass on thou's rotors. At that price you know they 're off shore parts. Probably has fewer cooling vanes & less gray iron. Like said above try rock auto. Or try Brakeworld or Brake warehouse. Stoptech or Centric rotors.

Thank you for posting this.... I may consider seeing as I'm planning on doing brakes soon.

I've got Centric slotted rotors and was thinking of just having the rotors turned and slapping new pads in there. Thoughts on turning slotted rotors??

You shouldn't have any issues w/ turning D/S rotors as long as there is enough thickness= spec's.
