    Default Brakes + Rotors replacement Suggestions

    I need to change my front/rear brakes + rotors soon and debating on which brand I should get. I was leaning towards power stop, wagner or acdelco but I'm seeing mix reviews online. Do you guys have any suggestions on which brand I should lean towards? (doesn't have to be the ones I listed)

    Honestly, for my Mazdaspeed 3 I just went with all stock, and it worked really well. I have ACdelco rotors on the rear, stock on the front. Stock pads all around.

    (I've since changed out for a track setup as I'm building the car, but as a street beast, stock was perfectly fine.)

    Bosch quiet cast pads and Wagner rust proof coated rotors worked out great for both my vehicles

    I’d recommend AC Delco. Have them all around on my 2010 GT and they’re great.

    I got mine from R1 Concept https://www.r1concepts.com/ Mine are OEM size R1 Carbon GEOMET® Series OEM Rotor Drilled and Slotted with their performance brake pads. They ended up being almost same price as Mazda OEM rotors and pads with US exchange rate. R1 declared value under $50 and i paid no dutiy or taxes. R1 also has a Big Brake forged series for you guys with 18"+ rims ...
