They're ROUND. What the hell else do you want?
:lmao:

Brake rotors are critical components, but they aren't complicated components. No reason to suspect them any more than one would any other Chinese made product. Like an iPad or iPhone, maybe?

an ipad won't kill me if it breaks in half at 80mph because of a metallurgy problem ;)

Mehh, I don't think they're made in some dude's basement. Houses in china do not have basements.


Nice new avatar, btw.

mostly because that could be anything from "oem part stolen from the factory" to "made in some dude's basement"
The description says they are CNC machined. How bad do you think they could be?

brake pads are different then rotors. Stock brake pads do not perform like good aftermarket pads, so going even cheaper then stock is not a good idea. But aftermarket rotors do not really work any better then the stock rotors. The chinese ones are made of same stuff stock rotors.

why dont you just buy OEM on ebay or forum?

I've bought plenty of used rotors and never had issues.

I put chinese made rotors on my Focus years ago. 60k in and no problems yet. I dont know if that means these will be any good but I guess my experience has been pretty good.
