I have a set of Mapa driled/slotted rotors on my car. They look ok. They do have rust but they were cheap and work. I've taken them RR and they held up great. Not a bad deal for the money. My only complaint is that they are not zinc washed so they get rusty when they are wet. Other than that, they work just fine.

When I first got the car I put on some GM cross-drilled / slotted rotors. After a very short time they looked horrible.

I painted mine with "VHT" paint from Autozone.



dont want to sound mean but those first ones looked terrible:thud:

but now that you painted it they look really good:cheers:

Yeah - they did look really bad. I was disappointed after spending the money and having them turn so quick.

I did not tape off the rotor as I did not want to miss any spots. The dusting that got on the contact surface was gone by the end of the driveway.

Well I hope your Baer Eradispeed rotors hold up. On my Ford F150 I am on my 3rd set which is now warped. Did you know that the exceptable out of round from Bear is .015"? As far as I am concerned if they can't make a round rotor, they should not be making them.
i havent had any problems so far


but i hope you have better luck with yours :cheers:
