    Cadillac XLR

    2007 Black Base

    Default Break pads and rotors

    Need to replace and looking for suggestions. I only drive about 3k miles a year and trying to watch cost. I see them on ebay for XLR and Corvette, complete sets starting around $200 and up for drilled & slotted with pads. Are these junk? Must I spend $400+ or is there a less-expensive brand that I can buy with some confidence?

    Thanks all!

    That low mileage should let you turn the rotors at a auto parts store. Buy name brand stuff. The old saying holds true. You get what you pay for

    Try R1 Concepts. They make aftermarket rotors and sell name brand pads. Iíve had these 4 years and have been happy. I got the zinc coated, wish I would paid s bit more and got the black rotors. I got the Posi-quiet pads, but others here swear by Hawk. Either way the ceramic pads reduce dusting. Go to Retailmenot.com and enter in R1 Concepts. They usually have a 20% off code for pads+ rotor purchase. Good luck.
