Default Need New Rotors (2007 GS350AWD)

to make a long story short, i need rear rotors and would like to upgrade to cross drilled rotors. since i will be replacing the rears, i will do the fronts as well. anyone have any recommendations on what to get and from where? i read a post on here about rotors from Brake Performance that seemed to get decent reviews. anything else? Thanks

I am not sure if u can get slotted and drilled for front AWD models they are different then RWD. I am personally looking for a nice cross drilled and slotted for my 2007 AWD and no luck. I hope someone can chime in where can they be found.

rotors are different for awd in the front but that doesn't mean you cant get them.

I can't find any slotted or crossdrilled for my AWD. I even searched and no one did that to they're awd. So unless so one had good luck with them i am still stuck with warp rotors.

thanks for this suggestion i called them up and spoke with Jon since i couldnt find anything on their site for AWD. he gave me 2 recommendations:

EBC Ultimax

EBC Sport

After speaking to Jon, he recommended the EBC Ultimax for its design qualities. i also purchased some Posi Quiet Brake Pads for the front and rear i also received the advertised 10% off and got the whole thing for $590. In the end, it was more than i was hoping to spend but still less than what the dealer wanted for just the rear rortor/brakes. i will let you all know how i like them. thanks again for everyone's help

I think aftermarket brakes usually last longer than oem stuff. At least in my experience

I hope everything works out well for you, and please when u do recieve them let me know if they fit perfectly and everything is smooth as suppose to be. If everything goes good then i am getting those rotors ASAP. Also the guy below who also said he ordered them please let me know how they fit and if any vibration or anything. Thanks guys in advance
