$159.98 from DP. www.domesticperformance.com

Funny thing about them is that RSM is in Canada. You'd be buying Canadian!

I now offer the entire Brembo and stoptek line and can get you the best stainless steal lines around. I am looking for test pilots who will get my cost on the cross drilled and slotted rotors to compare them So if you have a need for brakes and want the cheapest price you can get on Brembo or stoptek let me know because I am looking to test the slotted vs drilled vs drilled and slotted. I will also be setting up a deal on pads to go with this test. That means once again the Bonneville owner will receive access to top of the line product for dealer cost. I am also building a custom big brake kit for the Bonneville but need people who are interested. I will set up a separate page for people who are interested in sharing the development cost and how it will break down with the number interested.

Now I wish that I needed them

I guess I might buy some this spring and keep them on a shelf, either for a new Bonne, or when mine need em.

Thanks guys!!

How much will Brembo rotors be, I just want them for stock, and do you carry Hawk Street Brack Pads, and if you do how much.

I suggest Powerslots, RSM'*, or some other hardened Rotor for long-term use with ceramic pads.
Hmm... exactly HOW quickly will they kill them???

Depending on your driving style, it'll vary. Remember the ceramics will run hotter. You'd end up warping the stock rotors before you wore them out if you drive like me, Drifter, Turtle, Hector, and a couple other idiots

If you drive like JSeabert (who'* on probation for a bad speeding ticket and can't take any chances), you'd probably wear the rotors out in half their expected lifetime. Just a guess.
