Split Front Brake Rotors
« on: September 27, 2009, 10:26:17 AM »
Apparently someone is reproducing two peice split front brake rotors. Here is a link to ebay. I could find them listed on Camaro parts websites like Rick's. This must be a new item.

Interesting!  Nothing at Ricks, YO or Classic. $300 for 2-peice rotors is not bad when regular rotors are $255 at YO.  To bad, I already have my rotors :(

I emailed the seller to find out where they are made; here is his response...

Hi,
The rotors are made by a good quality rotor manufacturer in China. There are thousands of his rotors in one piece design currently in service. I would love to offer a USA product, but as priced, would be roughly double the cost of our current product. Thanks for your interest!!!!

When you get them let us know what you think. I am curious if the disc will fit on a GM hub.

Got the rotors last night. They look really good, can't really tell them from original ( I have one worn out original and 2 hubs). I don't know if the disc will fit a GM hub but it certanly appears that it would. I measured the rotor thickness 1.005. I think most all of us are already running replacement rotors from China anyways so their's no reason not to run these and save the originals.  Besides they look way better.......
Good Luck

Find out who is the main vendor sounce.  They can probably be bought cheaper once we do.  I know that DC is very expensive for what ever they sell.  I'll try and remember to call Rick George about this too.

I see their advertised on "Ricks Camaro's" web site now for the same price. Maybe if you wait a while the price will come down, it usually does. I'm happy with them though. I'vvve been trying to get them for a long time but didn't want to pay $1000.00 for used originals.
