I ran the RSM rotors for 2 years on My Malibu, with PLENTY of mileage on them. They finally started to warp on my way home form a business trip this past Friday. I went and had them changed since I knew how old they were. Lets just say they were no longer slotted rotors by the time I was done with them, lol.
I went with the regular rotors and some monroe Ceramic pads with lifetime warranty.
As for the AC delco ceramic pads,they are JUNK. I had them on my Malibu, since I was going through pads to quickly, they warped my rotors in no time, then once I put the slotted rotors on my car, they started to warp those in a matter of weeks. Only reason I kept the AC delco pads was that they were only a couple months old, so why change them. Well I put the pads on that I got from RSM ( ceramic titanium, or something like that) and they were great. I got a full year if not more out of that set of pads. I personally liked the RSM rotors, price wise I can get them for the same as my regular cheap rotors I put on my car ( since I can pick stuff up directly at RSM in Toronto), but I needed to have brakes changed ASAP.
I also thought about getting powerslot rotors this time since I seen a few people with them and more and more people do NOT like RSM.
But I will stick to the regular everyday brakes for now. I can tell you one thing, breaking in those brakes in the winter is not a fun thing, when you are used to slotted rotors and go to back regular brakes, well lets just say I was able to have the brakes on and spin the front tires, not a good feeling. But they are breaking in nicely now, and stop great, oh and they DO NOT sound like you have a bad bearing like my slotted rotors did when you stopped.
