Been running them for probably 5 years now and they have been great. I was skeptical considering the cost but no issues at all. Installed with ceramic pads and ss lines, made a very noticable difference in stopping. Dont forget to break them in properly.

Brakemotive user here as well. 3 years and no problems. Quite happy with them. Obviously they are not Baer, Willwood, or any other two-piece rotor. So unless you are road racing or doing very aggressive braking, you will be more than fine with brakemotive. All in all, a pretty nice product that has been more durable than most people would think. Especially at that price point.

I have them on a few vehicles and they seem pretty good for the price. Like others have stated they are not as good as the high dollar stuff but for the price the are pretty good.

Had them for a year and a half. Great rotors if you're street driving. I wouldn't trust them too much for road race/autocross but good stopping ability. felt like a very nice upgrade from the stock/oreilly stuff that was on it before.

If i remember correctly when brakemotive was really pushing these years ago they claimed the rotors were OEM.

I put a set on my CTS-V ~6 years ago (80k). I replaced one front rotor about 4 years ago, but probably could have had the fronts turned. They could stand to be replaced now. If they still offered my bolt pattern, I'd be ordering another set. They were well worth the money. I'll be replacing the pads with the same Powerstop Z23 Evolution pads, at least. I'll probably go with Centric high carbon rotors as replacements.
