    I used them to replace the factory ones when doing the front brakes. I had them turned before installing them and thus far no complaints. I found mine on Amazon.

    My girlfriends dad works for raybestos and told me when brakes or clutches wear out let him no and he'll get me a set free or cheap. I'd like to try those and see how they do since it won't be of any cost to me. Anyone tryed raybestos pads with the rotors? And if there's any problems I'll try and get him to push it through so they might get improved

    Raybestos rotors are good. Their pads and shoes suck pretty hard. I've had a lot of customers complain they are noticeably loud after install and I'll personally vet for them wearing out a lot quicker than Bendix or Wagners pads.

    The rotors are just big pieces of steel so I'm a firm believer that they are all fine to use. One brand is not forging and cutting steel better than another.

    I've used raybestos rotors in the past, but there pads always started to squeal due to being a semi metallic pad, I now use ebc rotors, and ebc or hawk pads
