Has anyone tried these rotors yet?

Has anyone tried these rotors made by Brake Performance and distributed by SupremacyCustoms here at Camaro5. They are dimple drilled and slotted and have a lifetime warranty against warping, that's pretty good! I just have never heard of them and SupremacyCustoms swears by them! The price is better than other close competitors too!

Get a PM from SupremacyCustoms for a price but I would guess around $600 for a set. I was looking at getting a set of Stillens until I saw these. Just wondering if anyone has tried them! I trust Stillen, they've been around for a long time but I never heard of these.

I've had a set of their drilled slotted rotors on my Dodge dually for a couple years now and they've been fine. When the dimples disappear, then they are at the minimum thickness, great wear indicator.

Thanks for the heads up on the noise from the dimpled! Are the crossed drilled holes chamfered? What is the warranty? Are they made by Granatelli and where are they manufactured? Thanks!

Yes the crossed drilled holes are chamfered

The warranty is lifetime against warpage

Granatelli does not make the rotors per-say. We purchase new cores and have the machining done to the customers request - i.e slotted, dippled or drilled or a combo.

Cheapest I have seen is $425, I just do not know about the stuff I have read about the dimpled making a clicking/scratching noise.

Just a few more specs

· Fits 2010-2011 Camaro

· Lifetime warranty

· Installs easily with simple hand tools

· Cooler looking then stock and offers a better cosmetic appearance

· Less brake pedal fade after repeated hard stops

· 15% decrease in repeatable stopping distance

· Increased heat absorption with faster thermal recovery

· Maintains OE civility and fully compatible with factory OE ABS

· Black Zink Coating – wipes away after 10 miles leaving a beautiful looking rotor with the dimples or crossed drilled holes and slots highlighted in black and a shinny face surface

· Drilled rotors have all holes chamfered to ensure long lasting quality

· GMS Rotors Feature Scraper Slots – These fully dissipate heat, increase bite and reduce stopping distance. Our slots also help to de-glaze and even out brake pads while throwing dust and debris away from the wheels. It also sheds water under-wet driving conditions.

· GMS Rotors Feature either Drilled (Dimpled) Holes or Chamferred Cross Drilled Holes – In both cases this prevents warping and cracking. A major feature of our blind degassing dimpled holes is that it extends the life of the rotors and pads and they dissipate heat with maximum braking performance under all necessary driving conditions. This allows us to offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY against warping and cracking.

· Balanced & Vented – GMS Rotors are machine balanced, vented for cooling, X-Ray Inspected and manufactured to meet QS and ISO quality system standards.

· Manufactured from premium quality solid casting, TUV approved steel.

· Ultra smooth rotor surface reduces brake noise and extends pad life and are vented for cooling.

· Meets and exceeds federal safety standards required for new vehicles

· Guaranteed vibration-free performance

I have the cross-drilled and slotted rotors from Brakeperformance.com, only had them on for about two weeks but haven't had any problems. They look great, much better than the stock... can't say I notice any performance difference though.
Not a great picture, but it gives you an idea...

Blue means he was riding the brake peddle. Like driving 2 footed. Or perhaps he was hauling-ars and had to stop very short. Once you turn the rotors blue like that, they usually stay blue - If they are not warping or warped then he is fine - if they are - i guess they have a lifetime warranty so ..... no big deal

I will work on that but it looks just like the white car - These are basically a high end factory rotor replacement with the slot and dimples or hles cross drilled
