Happen to see these and wondered everybody’* opinion on them?
First link:
Won't fit a 1994, crossdrilled is typically bad news. You want slotted, and these aren't. Never heard of 'Magnum'.

Second link: Crossdrilled. Not good. Never heard of this company before. Stay away, and it doesn't show them for your car. 00-04 rotors won't fit a 1994 even if you wanted crossdrilled, which you don't.

Third link:
These people are clueless. There'* no such thing as a 00-02 SSE. And they're not slotted, and you don't want crossdrilled. These won't fit your 1994.


Stick with KNOWN name-brand, slotted, not crossdrilled, and buy quality ceramic pads to complete the package.

I suggest www.rsmracing.com

And don't trust Ebay products of unknown manufacture to bet your stopping power, life, and car on. Buy NAME BRAND or proven products for your brakes ONLY.

Default Rotors

Just a note on my own experience with rotors (98 SSEi), I had a set of the RSM rotors, within a month they were so warped, it felt like the car was coming apart. I had the same experience with Brembo stock replacement rotors. I finally went with a set of Raybestos Power Stop, slotted and drilled rotors and Akebono ceramic pads, that solved the problem and the brakes work great.

Are you using a quality torque wrench to re-torque your lugs? I was TOLD to destroy my RSM'*, and they lasted me 2 years of brutal abuse.
