Well I put the New $77.00 NAPA Rotors on while keeping the existing NAPA Mid-grade Pads, which have about 2000 miles on them.

Results are NOT what I expected. Went on a 3 hour ride to a park, spend a half a day there and drive back 3 hours. Took off a tire to check out a rotor and it was puple/bluesh color. This tells me it most likely got to hot. Thou these rotors it did work without any front end shimmy. I don't think they should have gotten that hot to change colors in a three hour drive, 100 miles of this drive was highway miles.... like no braking to speak of. In any case, I call NAPA and told them if I have any front end shimmy from these rotors and pads I will be bringing both rotors and pads back for a refund and then who knows what I will do for quailty rotors and pads.

Just wanted to update you all and thank you all for replying.

Luke.

Your old pads need time to seat. You'll get hot spots from the 'high' points of the old pads on the new rotors. Give them time to seat and break in.

I paid 70 a set for OE style rotors from napa. The pads i got (mid level as well i believe) are somewhat dissapointing. They dust WAY too much, don't fit quite like i'd like, and make noise when at a medium operating temp. Stop just fine, but still...

What about a loctite thread lock on wheel lugs?
