Default Which brand of rotors?

Ill be doing brakes on the 93 soon and I still have original rotors on my car, but now they are pretty worn and im looking to replace them, can anyone point me to the right direction to obtain a good set of rotors?

Are we talking Performance or a good replacement set?

I got my last set at Advance, I believe that they are Bendix Rotors... About $50 a shot I think... Its been just about 1 year and still no warp

Regular, not performance as my 93 is on its final epoch and its not worth to put in more money than what is needed.

I highly suggest you stay away from the AutoZone cheapies if you want to get more than 10,000 miles out of them.

I've been running Napa Gold rotors for about 60,000 miles. Still no warping.

Autozone sells a better rotor too which wasn't bad in regards too thichness.
Worst ones I've seen yet were the Adv Auto cheapies...

Too bad you missesd Napa'* 40% off bag sale a two weeks ago. I picked up a hub for $87 and their best rotors for $54 i think.

As mentioned..any parts store cheapies are just that.

Bendix are good...as are other premium brands.
