What rotors to buy

Its about time to change out my rotors but i want to know what other people are running. I dont track my car or anything its basically only used for spirited drives in the mountains. Still run stock brembos and ebc yellows just wondering if its worth it to buy oem rotors or move to something aftermarket. Not looking to break the bank but i wont cheap out so let me know what you guys think

Many, many of us run the Centric High Carbons. They are made by Centric who owns the StopTech brand

They work very well on the track / street

Centric Premium Blanks are what I always ran. If you don't track the car most any blank rotor will be fine, pads will make a far larger difference.

This is what I would suggest, StopTech Cryo Brake Rotors. I run the blank versions on my Evo and have driven with the slotted ones as well. I'm very happy with the results. Don't forget to get a good brake pad and maybe a fluid change too. It will only improve the overall experience.

Another Centric fan here. High carbon for track use, standards for dd use. And as the others said, good pads go a long way. Cheap out on rotors before pads.

^ This. Good enough for the track and cheaper than most anything else out there.
