Rotors. and... eBay

Has anyone out there bought the generic drilled rotors off eBay? I'm in need of new rotors and I know I can get a full set of 4 for under 200 on eBay, they look pretty sharp and tbh as a student I'm all about budget upgrades. My only question is, can you trust them? I've searched up on it and found some people say they work fine for the average driver and others call them garbage. What do you guys think?

Thanks for any input.

I stopped in my local Napa today and I can get generic rotors for about $40 and pretty good drilled ones for $80. Still a lot compared to $150-$200 for a set off eBay. What do you people think?

I`m on budget too. DOn`t trust ebay rotors. Get some Bembo blanks or just get em from autzone. :) EBC makes good slotted rotors and BREMBO Doesnt make them slotted for some reason

Re: Rotors. and... eBay

I've had powerslot rotors on my car for years, they are awesome.

FRONT POWER SLOT CRYO Disc Brake Rotors
126.40026CSL (LEFTSIDE) & 126.40026CSR (RIGHTSIDE)

REAR POWER SLOT CRYO Disc Brake Rotors
126.40016CSL (LEFTSIDE) & 126.40016CSR (RIGHTSIDE)


the CSR are the cryo treated sport rotors
the SR are just the sport rotors ( less expensive)

Re: Rotors. and... eBay

Avoid eBay drilled. They aren't cast with holes in them. Brakes are nothing to cheap on. $40 solids are just fine. If you can't afford powerslots, you're not doing much else. Brakelines make a better difference.
