- Meets or exceeds OEM standards
- Direct fitment gauranteed. No modifications are needed.
- Same vane count as OEMs
- Double disc grounded for better break-in and smoother/quieter stops
- Mill balanced to ensure long lasting durability
- Plated for rust protection
- One year warranty
E-Line Series vs. Premium Series
The E-Line Series brake rotors are great for those who want a medium performance upgrade over their factory brakes. Every E-Line rotor uses a iron grade of G3000 that provides great stability and braking power. Every rotor has a silver zinc coating to help protect against rust and maximize the lifespan of the rotor, saving you money from replacing your rotors prematurely.
The Premium series are for those who want a high performance upgrade over their factory brakes. These rotors use a high carbon material which results in a stronger rotor that can handle more demanding driving styles and conditions. The Premium Series have a 50/50 center split castings to make the rotor stronger. These rotors also uses a black electro-coating process that gives the rotor a two-tone color finish while protecting against rust.
Cross Drilled and Slotted Brake Rotors
These rotors combine the benefits of both drilled and slotted rotors without compromising the stability or performance of the rotor. Read below for full details.
Cross Drilled Brake Rotors
Cross-Drilled rotors helps prevent warping of the rotor by releasing heat and cooling the rotor by up to an additional 105 degrees Fahrenheit when compared to non-driled rotors. In addition, all cross-drilled rotors are chamfered, meaning there is a slight slant at the opening of the hole. Our chamfering process reduces the chances of rotor cracks without compromising performance.
Diamond Slotted Rotors
With exclusive Diamond Slot technology, each brake rotor reduces debris and prevents brake pad glazing by capturing and removing debris as you brake and drive. The end result is better braking, longer pad life, and reduction in unnecessary rotor wear. The diamond ends are also used as an indicator of when you need to replace your rotors, once the indicators are gone, it's time to replace your rotors. No more guessing or unnecessary trips to the mechanic.
OEM Blank Replacement Rotors
Blanks are not slotted or drilled and are great for those who needs to replace their brakes but do not need the extra features that come with the drilled/slotted rotors. Blanks are ideal for people who do not drive agressively, who do not live in environments that are normally hot, or environments that's normally wet. OEM rotors are the lowest priced rotors and will provide the same or even greater stopping power as your factory rotors.
