    Best Replacement Brake Rotors and Pads?

    Which replacement rotors and pads do you recommend? I'm thinking of replacing my stock (warped) rotors with Centric rotors, but staying with the OEM pads. Thanks in advance for any replies.

    I have had good luck with raybestos on my other cars. Let us know what you end up using since I will need to do mine soon. Hopefully this thread will not get closed and others can chime in.

    Go to Rock Auto's website. They have different categories such as economy, daily driver, high performance and so forth and the information should help you make a selection.

    well just last weekend, I just put on some Centric rotors and their posi-quiet ceramic pads on the front of our van. Was tired of the warped rotors or brake judder or whatever you want to call it, I felt it was best (and easiest) to just change everything rather than wasting my time going to the dealer to see if they would do anything. So far they feel fine and no brake dust, but like I said it's only been a week, time will tell...

    Thanks for the replies.

    SteveV: Please let us know how the rotors and pads work out for you. I hope that combination works well for you.

    Anyone else have any recommendations? Thanks again.

    I have about 12K miles on my van. I dont brake hard or suddenly, but already the car wobbles when pressing the brakes. Im assuming the rotors have warped. Is this covered under Warranty? I've been hearing conflicting information on brakes/suspension warranty.

    Free shipping, free pads, Life time warranty. On some car they use OEM rotors. I bought a set for my E55 AMG and the rotors are 2-piece OEM rotors that they dimple and slotted. Can't beat the life time warranty.

    Thanks for the replies everyone.

    Yooyoo: Mine are warped at about 18k miles, and the dealer won't cover it under warranty. I've heard the dealer might cover it if it's 12k or less.

    This is where I got rotors and pads for our '07 MDX, dimpled and slotted. Highly recommended on mdxers.com. Was really stoked about putting them on until the MDX was totaled by an 80 year old woman! Still have the set BTW. Wish I could stuff them on the Ody...

    I just replaced my fronts with Power Slot rotors and Centric Posi-quiet pads.
    The pads suck when cold and great when warmed up. I threw away my stock pads so I wish I could go back.
    I'm going to try another set of pads as I think the rotors are just fine.
    I would not use the Posi Quiets. Too slippery when cold. I find myself having to apply my brakes further back from OEM pads.

    My Odyssey has a "death wobble" when I'm going down a hill (or mountain out here) and have to apply the brakes. I try to put it into low gear, but sometimes it doesn't catch. My 2006 model did this, as well. It's in the shop right now to check the rotors. Do you think this is a problem on all the 2011 vehicles, or just for us who are not flatlanders?

    I have found factory rotors do suck.

    You should buy the best rotors you can afford... do not cheap out there. Any local auto parts store can supply those. For pads, I like Wagner, again buying the best ones you can afford. When it comes to brake parts you get what you pay for. And for the price, I always replace the pads with new rotors. Do it once, do it right.

    I switched out the front rotors for Centric slotted around 50K miles. The pads had plenty of meat left, so they stayed. It's been two months of smooth driving/braking.
