these fit on a stock rl rim? nfw! i do know the minimum rim size must be a 17, but other than that, i'm clueless....

i've had my factory rotors replaced under warranty @ 5k miles, and now at 13k miles my rear rotors are being replaced under warranty... i've never seen/felt worse rotors in my life until i felt the front and back of my rears... they are soo horrible, the grooves go in so deep, i wouldn't even be able to turn them

Hm-m-m-m, the Brembos for around $1000, Gravana's Baer's for $899 (requires a bigger rotor), Gravana's SSBC for $829 (requires a bigger rotor), or the DDMWorks Calipers for $595 (uses stock rotors - tested with stock Redline rims) -- hm-m-m-m, I wonder which makes sense...

the plus to the upside to OEM's is you can find rotors a lot cheaper then the bears and ssbc

I'm sorry but that statement is hilarious. You say it's the "best bang for the buck" yet you don't know the price. Bravo, really, bravo

I know some people at a few dealers so I can get a discount on GM parts. So in the end it may be cheaper than a SSBC swap. Does anyone happen to know the parts needed to convert over?

i'd love to know how ****'s rotor swap is better then say the 4 or 5 other company's rotors made for our cars. (including GM)

i'm sorry, but unless the rotor gets bigger and squeezes itself against the caliper evenly on both sides and then magically stops your car with a gust of wind, i don't see how it gonna provide more stopping power than a 4 piston caliper.

The reasoning is more leverage and less weight. There are is already a lengthy argument on .net about this. Worth a read IMO.
