Anyone buy Rotors on Ebay?

I'm looking for some new Rotors for my 05. I've found a lot of different sellers on Ebay and was wondering if anyone has bought any of these rotors? If you did, what's your experience?

Dude, when I had my 99 GT I purchased a full set of four corss drilled and slotted rotors and brake pads on eBay for like 180 bucks shipped. They worked great. My mechanic said he couldn't even buy the rotors from his source for that kind of money. Put 15K on them before I sold the car and never had an issue. I think the seller was "the brake factory".

I bought drilled and slotted rotors for my foxbody and the difference was amazing!! No problems here at all. I have pictures of them in my profile. I think they were from a place called R1 concepts. they are a good buy for the money!

i dont trust it personally, anyone can take a regular rotor, drill some holes in it and mill some slots. Doesnt make it a high performance product by any means. if your just going for looks then they're perfect but for real performance you want to go with a more reputable source such as brembo. with 15000 miles on a pair of rotors its clear that they were not used very hard. My Brembo rotors dont last more that a couple thousand miles til theyre replaced, but i drive the S*** out of them. It really depends what you are looking for in the product that will determine where you should get them. ALSO! cross drilled rotors are not ideal for any performance application. Purely slotted rotors would be the way to go. Any real track car or performance vehicle will have slotted rotors or cast vented (these are the rotors that you see on porsche, mercedes, ferrari etc) these rotors have the holes but they are NOT drilled. The rotor is actually cast that way. when ever a rotor has holes drilled in it the holes become weak spots and they are the perfect breeding ground for cracks and fissures. If you are after performance braking you should look at extra thick solid rotors or slotted rotors from a reputable source. The quality of the metal makes a huge difference in when and how easy the rotor heats up, stops, or warps. In the end its best to just spend the money on a quality rotor with a quality pad that suits your application.

Just an old ford...

They would be for my daily driver. These days I do a lot of stop and go driving in traffic. I'm not hard on my brakes very often, just every now and again. They would be strictly for street use. I guess I'll do more research.

I got some drilled/slotted rotors off of ebay after a lot of looking at thickness and such, paired them with some hawks from AM and they pretty much suck your eyes out of your head. No problems with 35,000+ on them. With some autocross and lots of Drag passes, 100+ of them. I can't remember who made them but it said something about corvette engineers run the company or sumpin like that.

the rotors and pads i got off ebay from brakemotive have been great, and the best part is they dont rust up like the others and look so much better. i put one set on the 06 last year, and another set on my 05 this past year. my buddy bought a set for his truck too and likes them.
