eBay crossdrilled/slotted rotors good?

I need new pads and rotors on my V6-6speed coupe. I know there isnt much function to drilled and slotted rotors, but i like the look of them and dont mind the excess pad wear since there so cheap.

[FRONT + REAR] Callahan Drilled Slotted Brake Rotors + Quiet Ceramic Pads Manual | eBay
Found this lovely set on ebay. Anyone try these? What is the differences in brakes on all the 7th gen (auto vs manual, coupe vs sedan, i4 vs v6).

For something as important as brakes, I personally would go with a good reputable brand.

Yeah, like ikethegreat said, brakes isn't something you should just skimp out on and get some unknown stuff. Definitely go for something legitimate and reputable.

I did a quick search and could only find one (I said it was quick) review and the guy even said he "guessed" they stop better and he also got a vibration when braking at highway speeds. This is with him following bed-in procedure. Also I can't really tell from the pics but if those drilled holes aren't chamfered I wouldn't even bother. When I was first shopping around for brakes I was originally going to go with raybestos cross drilled and slotted rotors (a much more known and respected company then Callahan(?)) and I sent them back after seeing they did not chamfer the holes. Excessive heat will cause stress cracks to form. Chamfering helps alleviate this to a degree.

In all honesty there are places where you can cheap out and cut corners on your vehicle...but a major safety system such as your brakes is the wrong place to do it. Just my opinion.

No vibrations, or cracking.

I bought a set like that on EBay by a company called Brake Motive I believe. They have been awesome I figured for the price I couldn't go wrong. The only thing I could complain about are the pads they came with create a lot of brake dust.

Dont listen to "experts" on here who have never tried them. Ive used them on different cars and currently have some on an 02 Cadillac CTS V. ZERO problems. Great price. Great product.

Lots of people have opinions, few people have reviews. Looks like another positive review.

Its funny that all the people who have never tried them are negative, but all the people who have bought the rotors are positive.

Sweet ride in your signature btw

I bought pads and the slotted and drilled, it's not bad at all, only thing to me I don't like is high speed breaking, there's just a lot of vibration thru the steering wheel. Overall stops well for sure, maybe because I have hawk pads on the front, but either way, breaks well!

This whole thread is stupid. You're asking for reviews on "ebay rotors". You realize Ebay isn't a brand of rotors right? Each rotor sold on ebay could be a completely different brand made in a completely different country. Who knows where these mystery rotors were built, what materials they used to build them, or what kind of QA/QC procedures they were manufactured with. Just because one person had a good experience with a set of "ebay rotors" doesn't mean you will.

Unless your buying from the same exact seller, it is like comparing apples and oranges. This is why people suggested sticking with a name brand rotor. When you buy "ebay rotors" you have no idea what you are getting.

If you want to gamble and save a few bucks, on arguably one of the most important parts of your car, then by all means go ahead. *IF* they end up failing, I hope you're still alive to learn from your mistake.
