5th Gen rotors

Its time to replace my pads and rotors on my 01 Lude (w/ only 60K miles!) all original 100% OEM except a K&N drop in air filter.

I already bought Honda pads but, i see that Honda rotors are expensive. Are they worth the price?

Any 1st hand experience is helpful.
fyi- its my daily.

thx
ab

Re: 5th Gen rotors

I recommend the Wearever rotors from advance. They come with a two year warranty for warpage.

Part No. YH141513 price $35,99 ea

Re: 5th Gen rotors

Agreed with biglegs as well. Unless you have horrible damage to the rotors beyond normal use then you can have them resurfaced (turned) to give a fresh surface with out buying new.

BTW, 60k on a bone stock LAST year of production lude....I would do horrible disgusting things for that. Take good care of 'er

Re: 5th Gen rotors

Get the OEM they will last longer and u can get them reserfaced the next time u change the pads. A lot of aftermaeket rotors will barly be in spec and u can't reserface them or very few times to still be in spec. U got to think about the fact that the OEM rotors where made for ur car while aftermarket rotors can be universal for multiple cars. Keep that in mind, is say go with Honda.

Re: 5th Gen rotors

sure... I paid $8750 cash money book value. Worth every penny- not a scratch! and Garaged. It was worth flying from NJ to Ohio and driving it back.

I'm keeping this original- maybe i am getting old... but its hard to keep it 100% stock cause I've already modded an 00 Si & 95 GSR...

Its a sickness we all have lol......

Perhaps you may be right- the Honda's are too $$$$ I wont have the same rust issue because its my daily. I'll make it work I'll do the fronts then the rears to stay in my budget. Might as well stay 100% OEM.... well except for the K&N...lol
thx man
