Default Bendix brake pads

I out Bendix ceramic pads on the front of my car and turned the rotors.. Also Adjusted and cleaned the rear ones, my car stopped making this annoying noise like a metal Chirp. But Anyway, Will the ceramics on the front wear my rotors out quicker????

Its not recommended to use ceramic pads on stock rotors, you will do damage very quickly. I suggest getting slotted aftermarket rotors to compliment the ceramic pads. It will lengthen the life of both pieces of hardware, reduce brake dust and increase stopping power.

And the beneftl, it will save you from having to buy new rotors in the near future

Check out RSM slotted rotors from Domestic Performance

I have raybestos ceramic pads on my 2000 SE front brakes with where put on with stock
rotors. And now my rotors need to be replaced. An just like 89BonnieSE89 replied
I heard that they will worp stock rotors. I also was told that Bendix ceramic pads
are know to squeak badly.

I have been shopping around for new rotors myself. And the RSM'* seem
to be one of the best choices. I just haven't made my decision one with ones
yet.

I would have gotten the rms rotors my like these guys, but I don't have any kind of assisted braking. So under hard braking regardless of brakes im probably just gonna skid a lot.

I simply got new stock rotors, pads, and calipers. I didn't have $ for rms rotors. I needed new brakes badly too. The bleeder valves on the calipers was rusted like crazy. The rotor on one wheel was scrapped up really bad because the pad was gone (literally). I was braking with the metal plate behind the pad. I had metal dust everywhere.

Do rms rotors come with calipers?

i recently did calipers and ceramic pads on my car with the stock rotors. Nope problems here and I drive on 35W 100 miles a day....in the occasional 75mph-15mph stop and go traffic. Haven't warped yet, and the braking seemed to be a lot cleaner with the ceramic pads, but maybe it was just because they were new! A lot of newer cars use ceramic pads on unslotted rotors and seem to be fine. granted they MIGHT warp easier, but stock rotors are definately cheaper. if you can afford rsm go for it, probably a great upgrade, but for me the ceramic pads on stock rotors works fine.
