Brembo Rotors on eBay

After doing the "Click here to find similar topics before posting", I found out that at least one of us here (Milo) used the cross-drilled rotors on the 90.

I've been seeing a lot of Brembo rotors for rovers on eBay lately and was wondering if anyone had any comments or feedbacks on particular product. Looking to overhaul my brakes on the 90 and just looking for options. Other than "Milo", anyone else used these rotors?

BTW, here is the link for the Brembos on eBay...

Thanks!

Defenders really don't suffer from brake fade as much as a sports car. I mean, who here has done 0-60-0 in less than 20 seconds? . You already have vented front discs, so I think just going with stock brakes is fine. Unless you're talking about a 110 you're going on a trip around the world with 5000 lbs of cargo.

LOL... I think it's more like 0-60 in 20 seconds... LOL

Seriously though, not really looking for extreme performance in a track.... just more on the "upgrade" side of things, and also I think pricewise.

Aren't the genuine ones $50 bucks each? My thought process is if I can get a relatively better performing product for roughly the same or possibly cheaper price I'll take 'em.

Anything will work and feel better then what you have now, the few times I have changed bearings and front rotors I have seen a TON of crap stuck in the vents on the rotor, I think the same would happen to the cross drilled rotors and then they would loose their effect. If your 90 sees mud then get the cheapest break pads and rotors you can get, they seem to be lasting pretty good for me, I think I have Lockheed stuff right now.

Mine does 0 - 60 in 9.5 Only had the chip done and re-geared

A standard 4.0 D90 must do it in 12.5?

The gold (zinc) plating won't match chrome rims will it?

I needed new rotors all the way around anyway, so I got the Brembo rotors from Ebay. I can't say if it's made an improvement over OEM, because when I got the truck only one rotor was not ready for the scrap pile. BUT, I can say that it stops nicely now. Considering the amount of time I'm driving through mountain passes I don't mind the thought of some extra cooling of the brakes...

The brembos that I have seen are slightly less in quality that genuine.

They are still fine, just not quite as nice.

Thanks guys... I think I'll go for those then since I need to scrap my rotors. Hopefully the initial squeeking that some of you experienced won't be too annoying.

I have some DBA rotors that made a hell of a lot of noise. It ended up being the zinc plating go so hot it melted and re-attached itself in rough clumps, which caused the pads to glaze. The remedy was to sand the rotors down smooth and install new pads. things are fine now.

I am adding vented rotors to my 110. I decided to buy ebc dimpled & slotted from Tirerack. They are close to me & I got them pretty cheap as they were a closeout. I open the box & stamped on the side BREMBO. I did not go for the drilled. oh ya mine are black & they won't match my chrome wheels!

Did you adjust the speedo to compensate for the regear? You might think you are going faster than you really are!!!

I wouldn't go with cross drilled unless you are planning to race your 90 They WILL squeak after you play in the mud, plus after a while they will crack. I installed a set on a Vette and they are cracking after 1 year but the dude races his vette . If they make the slotted rotors I would go with these since they are more street friendly. However, I have no idea how they would behave off road
