I need to change my front rotors and pads asap
rotors are probably warped. I get a vibration in the steering wheel when braking at 45+ MPH
and the pads are worn out.

I was thinking of getting these Centric Posi-Quiet Extended Wear Pads for $36
More Information for CENTRIC 10608660

and the Centric Power Alloy Rotors for $50 each
More Information for CENTRIC 12546061

Should I go with something else?

I looked at the brembo rotors but they are like $80 each and the actual reviews on tirerack didn't seem to be that good.

LMK what you guys think

Does sound like you might have warped rotors.

I'm not sure about those pads. I wouldn't cheap out on brake system components though.

Why not get the Powerslot rotors with Hawk HPS pads? A little more money, but you know what you're getting.

:agreed:

fancy and cheap is never better than simple and good. i am running simple 00 GT dual pistons up front, and simple disks in the rrear.. and honestly, i have no need for stopping power from my brakes. i can lock the wheels.. it means my tires are the weak point.

The posi quiet's are a good pad, I used to have those on all 4 corners when I had my ebc slotted rotors. Centric is a good brand as well so you shouldn't have problems.

If you need pads, you need pads. But read up on the bed-in procedure for new rotors, and do exactly that with your current setup. Yes, your current setup isn't new, but still, go through the process.

Your rotors *might* be warped, or they might have uneven pad deposits on them, and when they spin around they have grippy spots that tend to grab the pads and that translates through the rest of the system which you can feel in the steering wheel.

Worst case you killed a little time and it didn't work. Best case you fix the problem and dont have to buy rotors.

i got the posi-quiet ceramic pads i think those were better overall than the regular posi-quiet ones
but yeah as far as the rotors go, they would have to be turned and the cost was just not worth it when I could get new rotors for about the same money
