Any good brand Rotors??
I got a 98 LS 400 rotors in my 2GS but its warped again. I tried to get OEM but heard some after market is better. I hate to go to fleabay every year for a set of rotors. Thanks!

If you want a reasonable price on an OEM or better quality rotor:

cool, the rotor in tirerack looks good.

I know a few of us 98-00 LS guys have R1 concepts and enjoy them. I got a great deal on all four slotted and drilled rotors and posiquiet pads going direct through them via their eBay store. This is a good combo. My dad and I both have 99 LS's and he has stock rotors and a different brand ceramic pads and loves the way my brakes feel much better than his.

warping isn't the rotor's's driver caused.
no rotor is warp-proof or guaranteed against it, that's impossible.
it's not an issue of quality or defect either.
we guarantee our rotors...they don't crack.

hot/tracked 1-piece rotors are bound to warp at the slightest of slow speed/stop brake taps without true coast cooling…not stand still.
and that's not to say only track driving causes this. even spirited drives, lead brake-foots, quick on and off highway ramps, buzzing around town, stop & go, etc.

also, pads are a HUGE factor…as is proper bedding.
pad deposits, glazing, cheap pad compound, unset caliper pistons, poor bedding/prep procedures, etc.
these also give that "feeling" of a warped rotor when in fact they are not.

...just things to consider.

we're confident you won't have any issue with our rotors & know you'll love your custom set.
let me know when ready and we'd be happy to get you into a set of AR.
