I would steer clear of the slotted and/or drilled rotors for DD and street use. The solid ones will provide long life and a steady secure stopping power stop after stop. Uneven Pad material transfer to the rotors is the source of way too many "out of round" reports. Dial indicator as you hand spin the rotors will show warp vs other issues.

The slots look great for eye candy but way too many have had issues until returning to "blanks".

How did these turn out? I installed some semi metallic Centric pads that claimed to be low dust and they're awful. Let me know your thoughts and what you're comparing them to before you installed these. Thanks

Thumbs up Stoop Tech Z23

Use the Z23 from Stop Tech as it is the continuation of the ones I installed on my X5. Low dust, no noise, good cold stopping power, good pedal modulation, long life in stop and go as well as hwy.

Thanks for the heads up! Are those a ceramic or semi metallic pad? Couldn't find any details about them.

I'm so jealous you guys live in an environment where your vehicle's do not seem to get dirty much or rust seems to exist. Those pics look like new car/parts. Well done keeping it so clean.

On the pad information
ALways go the the manufacturer’s website
Do NOT rely on a reseller’s for correct application or detailed info.
I believe the website is www.powerstop.com

I went to Stoptechs site as well as Powerstops. Are these two companies under one roof? I couldn’t find any specific info if they’re all ceramic or semi metallic for the Stoptech brand. The powerstops do indicate they’re ceramic. Powerstops website gives you direct links to their resellers but everything is a kit that comes with rotors. And the links I do find for pads only I can’t find them for the 4.8. Only the 3.0 and 4.4. I’ll search a bit more today and I have an email inquiry sent to Powerstop.

As far as I know Powerstop and Stoptech are not but these days who knows?

I know Centric and Stoptech are the same companies.

They are owned by a conglomerate that owns AP exhaust, centric brakes, and stop tech.
Welcome to the world of automotive parts. I started with Champion when it was a $250 million company. 10 years later I was part of a $14.7 Billion called Dana Corp. we were buying companies every month.
