Almost 180k on my 2016 Limited and I've always used OEM pads on the original rotors

Everything's smooth as glass under normal conditions, but after a good heat cycle while braking aggressively from high speeds, I get a bit of a bad vibe

Front pads are starting to get low, so I've been shopping for replacement rotors

I was set on getting a Brembo blank front kit, but the've been out of stock for the last month and have no idea when they will get more


What are you guys using and how do you like them?

Brembo blanks were out of stock and I needed sumthin quick cause my pads were gone, so I went with some cheap cross drilled/slotted rotors from AutoShack and OEM pads.

Spent an hour bedding them in good and proper

Day and night difference from what I had on there previously, but we'll see how long they hold up

I'm jealous of the lift you were able to use. I did my brakes sitting on the garage floor.

Just did my oil change tonight and got a couple of pictures of how the rotors look after about 3 months and 3600 miles. Did not take of the tires but you can get a good item of how they look. Been real happy with the performance thus far.

One front and one rear. Will get some better pictures the next time I do a rotation.

I installed some powerstop (drilled version) on my previous vehicle, a 2008 Subaru Forester. It was night and day compared to OEM. Drove it for a couple years after that and sold it to my coworker. He still had the car and the brakes are still on it. He hasn't complained to me so I assume it's all good. They drove it to Arizona and back multiple times from Portland to Arizona.

That's why I didn't hesitate to buy powerstops again.

I'm using akebono for the front with my power stop. Bosch pads for the rear on OEM rotors. I figure most the stopping power and problems usually come from the front so that's where I focus on most.

I thought so as well, but when I took a close look I found the rear rotors were in terrible condition. The fronts aren't perfect but replacing the rears (I used Autozone gold) solved probably over 90% of the shaking.

My next step would to be replacing them. Maybe sometime next year.
