Centric Rotors

I am looking to replace the rotors on my 2004 zx3 2.3L and am having some trouble finding which rotors are the best. I did a lot of reading and saw a lot of good things about centric rotors. My question is which ones do I get? There are a bunch of different ones and I don't know what the differences are. I am looking to pair these with the Hawk HPS pads. Thanks for any help!

Centrics Premium (E-coated hub and rotor edges) are very good, as are Brembo and NAPA Premiums. Hawk HPS are a very good street performance pad. They're good for autocross and will work for light lapping sessions as well. We just put Centric premiums on my Mazda6 along with Centric Posi-Quiet semi metallic pads. So far so good. Seems to be a nice match for a daily driver.

i get the Centric blanks Tirerack sells..I'm pretty sure they are the Premium's

they are a great rotor combined with Hawk HPS. ran that set up for autocross and it was great, now on my daily and holding up just fine.

Do you have a part number for them? Are they these 120.61082 from brakewarehouse.com, about $58?

When I enter in my vehicle information on tirerack it doesn't show me any Centric rotors.

Cheapest place I found was Rock Auto and Auto Parts Warehouse. But as mentioned, our friends and site sponsor, Tirerack, also carries them. Sorry, don't know the part numbers off-hand, but if I remember correctly the 120 prefix is for the premium line.

The only rotors we carry for your Focus that are made by Centric are the StopTech rotors. Excellent option.

I used the Centric Blanks with Hawk HPS Pads, they held up pretty damn good. I managed to overheat them at the track when I was pushing hard, but considering they aren't slotted or drilled, they did a pretty damn good job.
