Brakemotive rotors and ceramic pads

Well, I did order them for my 1500 and they came in quickly, ~2 days but I didn't installed them. They do look really good and I started to install so they do fit.

Long story short after installing the drivers side rotors/pads I went to the passenger side and noticed the cause of the vibration while braking wasn't a warped rotor but rather a froze caliper piston. So I had to uninstall the new stuff and take it in under warranty. After new calipers/rotors/pads under warranty I decided to keep the new stuff until I eaither get new rims or I need to replace them.

Brakemotive rotors and ceramic pads

I still have a little life left on my stock brakes. Although I just put the 22's on, so that may be short lived. My back brakes are actually in good shape, so it is a hard decision whether to go all the way around or just do the fronts....Hate to leave the backs since you can see the rotors so well with the new rims. Would look really good. And if my stock backs are at 50k with a lot of pad left, guess if I change them I might never have to do it again....lol. But I am anxious ot get these regardless...

Brakemotive rotors and ceramic pads

I installed the front and rear kit with pads last week and it stops much much better now. I also got rid of the shaking steering wheel when I hit the brakes above 40mph. the box with the rotors said powerstop on them and the pads itself are marked as powerstop also. I only took one pic of the rear driver rotor, overall I'm very happy with it so far, napa wanted $400+ just for the 4 rotors.

Looks good! After todays oil change I just noticed Brake time soon! UGH guess programmer has to wait. Now to upgrade rotors instead. These look great.

Anybody have further comments after a few weeks of driving on them?

I am definitely going with the brakemotives when I do it.....Seems to me it was $280 all the way around with ceramics though.
