How much are brakes & tires for the new 2ss

Hello Folks,

I am on the verge of purchasing a 2011 2SS/RS. Just curious, with the staggered 20" wheels, what are the replace cost for a new set of tires. Also, what would a brake job cost on the Brembo's? I ask because I plan on this vehicle being my daily driver for a couple years until I can buy another vehicle to lessen the wear & tear. Not that it really matters what tire & brake jobs cost but curious. This is my 1st leap into the performance world and have no idea what type of maint. cost I am looking at.

Thanks in advance for any feedback provided.

About 225 for rears look around. Tire Rack may have the best deals. Don't Know about the fronts or breaks. Foot in it less than 10K to replacement time. Drive like a Ford you may get 30K out of them. Welcome.

Pirelli's are roughly $1,000 a set by the time you get them mounted. Brakes, Hawk HPS replacement pads, roughly $250, plus installing them. Stock brembo pads last a long time, I still had pad left at 27,000 miles when I swapped out for the Hawk pads. Pirelli's last depending on how you drive, burn out, can be very short life. Regular driving they will last 10 to 20k, depending on your idea of regular...

You can't go shopping at Neiman Marcus with Wal Mart Money.

Nice welcome DSL84. Just curious since I've never owned a performance vehicle. Always had SUV's/Trucks.

LMAO It's a nice analogy.

But I think these parts are more Macy's with Walmart money, than Neiman Marcus.

We aren't rolling in Bently's here


OP The maintainace costs are similar. Quality set of SUV/4x4 tires CAN cost almost as much as our Pirelli's Brake components will be more expensive. If you are on a tight budget (Not assuming you are, just saying) then definitely plan well in advance for close to a grand come tire replacement time. There are cheaper options than the P-zero's but skimping on brakes and tires almost always = bad results.

A good set of brake pads (i.e. Hawk ceramics) will run $200+, they are pretty large. The rotors are huge and likely to be quite expensive as well. If you have a brake shop do it, expect a complete job to run $500.

You'll be looking at $900+ for a new set of tires, but you can get replacements that last a lot longer (i.e. 35-40K rather than 20-25K) than the sticky stockers... .

I just replaced my tires. Continentals which I like as well as the Pirellis and have double the tread life were $1400 out the door including replacement certificates from Discount Tire.

I also just installed SS brakes on my V6- stock rotors are super cheap on Ebay. I'm talking like $60/axle. I went with R1Concepts drilled and slotted rotors and they were like $400 I think. The Hawk Ceramic Pads were like $200-something and they should last a very long time.

Cost of breaks is relative to the value of life. DON'T go with the cheapest. Please.

Ok, and shoot me down if this sounds completely stupid, but isn't your burnout habits also going to contribute to pad wear? Considering you are using your brakes to assist in keeping the car from grabbing and taking off on a standing burnout.

What I mean basically is the front pads are holding your car still but those rear ones don't have any chance at keeping that rear-end still, so aren't they just burning up like crazy?
