Opinions....Baer Decela-rotors good quality?

I'm looking for rotors that look "nicer" than the stock SS rotors. I have no interest in tracking my camaro and I have no interest in dropping $1700-$1850 on Racing Brake rotors. I think Baer (and Brembo) are a good quality second tier rotor (with Racing Brake being numero uno!), I'd just like to hear some opinions.

What pad are you running? Stock? If you just added the rotors, you need to sand/scuff the used pads, and Lube the slides and hardware.

Nice....thanks everyone. I have Pedders stainless steel brake lines so that should be a good combo.

SS lines will make anyones car brake better. They won't bulge at all when you apply pressure. That means all the fluid pressure is transmitted directly to the brake piston. It sounds like the OP is just wanting to add the cross drilled rotors for the look, not necessarily for any braking performance. SS lines would be nice if he's willing to drop another $200 for some actual performance.

We carry them and are very happy with the quality. We offer an upgrade package as well, the Baer rotors, Hawk pads and S/S brake lines. Great feedback from all the clients that have gone that route.
Baer also warranty's them against warping or cracking for 3 years as long as they are not worn below minimum thickness.
