Hey guys,


Having vibrations on my steering wheelon my '06 4X4 Sport,when braking, I decided to replace the OEM discs and pads with aftermarket stuff. (+/- 40K)
I found a lot of topics on forums where poeple mention troubles of warped OEM discs between 30 and 40K
I am not towing heavy gear or extreme off-roading.

What would be recommended and where to buy? I want to replace the front side only.
Links to part web part suppliers would be great as I can easily hit 100 sites via google not knowing if they are reliable or not.

I need to have it shipped to Holland (Yes...that's in poor Europe).

Thanx for any info........

Regards from Amsterdam

I had the same problem with my 05. I just put the top of the line disc's that the autopart store had and wagner thermoquiet pads. No problems since then.

Heej David,

Do yo remember the brand of the rotors?

Anyone else any experiences with aftermarket rotors.

I am still not sure what to buy. Need to choose between Zimmerman, Powerstop, Raybestos etc. Found also suppliers here in Holland, but dón't want to end up replacing them again within 30K.

Thanks for your comments!

I cannot recall the brand. I just looked at oriellys.com and it says Bosch Quietcast for the life time warranty. Its been almost 2 years so i dont know if that was it or not.
