Smile tsx brakes?

Just a quick question.. Are v6 mt and tsx rotors the same? And if so are the fronts and rears the same?

Yes, they are. And from reading the TSX boards, the OEM pads/rotors warp just as quickly.

less surface area = less braking power. But yes they look sexy. make sure the front are 11.8in not 11.1in. Also all the black on the where it touch the pad will wear down once you bed them in. Only the hub will stay black

my OE centric didn't warp. Its the pad that f up the rotors not the rotor itself. The OEM pads leave deposit. That why I switch to ceramic akabono ProAct

the Akebono ProAct are really great. No random reside crap like oem. very very low dust and 0 noise even on cold days. I got the front for 50 vs 80 for hawks HPS. Bites really well. I can do 80-0 stops without the front end brakes freaking out on me. Cost me 100 bucks for pads and rotor since when I bought them I used prime to get free 2day shipping off amazon.

Bedding in your pads properly is one of the most important things to do to prevent brake pedal vibration. Here is a video of me bedding my pads in.

The video follows the instructions I got on this site here.

cool

What do you guys think?[/QUOTE]

Cool looking rotors! As far as brake performance and reliablity goes, I would go with the Hawk HPS brake pads front and rear. You will not be disappointed! I just put hawk hps pads on new OEM rotors yesterday and they feel SO much better than factory in terms of fade and responsiveness.

If you want more stopping power and do not mind changing the pads often and cleaning the brake dust off of your wheels, than go with the Hawk hp+. They have more bite to them, but of course at the cost of longevity and brake dust.

And an FYI, when you are doing brake work, Make SURE that the pins that hold the caliper move back and forth freely. (I am saying this because one of mine was frozen and I had to drive it out and re grease with dillectric grease). I do not know if this is common on our cars or if it was just mine, but I figured I would give you the heads up before you start your project.

Thanks for the helpful post! I knew there was a brake bedding procedure, but not sure of the proper means to do it. I just installed brakes, so it looks like a good excuse to have a little fun tonight

Since no one answer the question I was curious.......does the brake pads for our Honda Accords the same as for a TSX......I am caught between doing the 6speed upgrade with a set of tsx rotors I might be getting or a full tsx rotor and caliper change.....since I am trying to determine brake pad size.....Akebono brake pads say they fit both TSX and our Accord but HAWK HPS seems to have different part numbers for each of their respective front brake pads so I am confused anyone really know?

okay here the deal. TSX = v6 mt = hybrid calipers and rotors. I have swap from a regular v6 to a hybrid calipers. The regular v6 has 11.1 rotors while the tsx/hybrid/6mt has 11.8. So you can't just change the brackets either because the rotors are thicker. I tired going that cheap route also. Bit me in the ass. So if you are going to do it swap out the calipers and brackets.

Also the rear i am not sure, but I think they are the same because they both look small ass hell to be rear rotors. compared to the fronts.
