37k, brakes again, Centric, EBC, Powerstop?

Hello. My brakes are feeling “warpy” again. Last time dealer turned the rotors & put on new pads. Anyone have some (or others)?

Thank you.

R1 slotted rotors, Hawk LTS pads. Maybe 500 miles on them so far with no problems and hoping for the best!

Cut rotors, will never last long. Takes less to warp them.

Cut like slotted or cut like turned?

I'm at 50K on stock brakes, I know my time to replace is coming...

I never turn rotors. Turning them makes them thinner and they just warp quicker. The stress in the metal doesn’t ever go away.

I’ve had great luck with power stops on multiple vehicles. I hear the raptor guys love the R1s. I may try them next time, but my powestops have a good bit of life left.

Napa ultra premium rotors have lasted the longest for me. I have over 20k miles on these.

I remember on my 4Runner how the front brakes would shimmy soon after the rotors were turned.
I ended up replacing rotors instead of turning them.

Unless you are someone who waits to the last minute to brake the rotors should last for 100,000 miles or more. On every truck they have lasted me until I sold them with more than 170K on the odometer.

I had a Chevy Tahoe with front disc and drum brakes at the rear and the front rotors needed to be replaced at 32,000 miles. I used aftermarket rotors and calipers and brakes and they were fine for another 140,000 plus miles when I sold the Tahoe. I have a 2007 Prius with 97,000 miles and with an automatic transmission and it has 90% of the pad life remaining and rotors have never been touched.

Need to be careful as to the pads that are used as some of the "long life" ones will increase the wear on the rotors. With my own vehicles if the rotors needed to be cut it was only good for one brake job and I knew that I would need the replace the rotors the next time work was done on the brake, and it was best to use better than OEM parts.

Thanx Calson. Interesting point on long life pads passing the wear onto the rotors.

Someone shared Centric Premium Rotors and Akebono Ceramic Pads are a great way to go. Anyone else use this combo long-term?

Thank you.

I did Stoptech slotted and drilled rotors with OEM pads. Quiet, smooth, a little dusty (but I wash my truck often) and good bite. Plus they look good.

That is the combo I ran in my 2010.. What I noticed was that the difference is in the pads.. The Toyota pads just don't dissipate the heat and then the rotors warp. The Centric rotors cost less than the Toyota rotors and so do the Akebono pads. The big plus I found over the Akebono pads is that I had very little dust and I had no warping in the 70k miles that I ran that combo, while the stock Toyota setup lasted me all of 12k miles before they started pulsing.

The only downside to ceramic pads is that in the cold they don't have as much bite to them. In the heat or anything above 50 degrees, if you drag the pads, they heat up nicely and bite harder.

Thank you.

If the rotors were thin enough to warp before, turning them down would decrease the length of time/mileage until they warped again. Have the dealer put on new rotors. Hopefully, if they had a bad run, they've been purged and good ones are now in their place.

I have just over 70k on my 2007 rotors and they're smooth as silk. I put in new pads at 65k or so, sans turning.
