Lightbulb What rotors?

Yes, another thread with this.

I want a rotor that deals with heat very well and I have decided to get one of two rotors,

Brembo Replacement Rotor or the High Carbon Plain 125 Series Cryo Treated Rotor??

Cryo 125 is much better than the Brembo blank. Powerslots & DBA are also very good.

brembo blank vs centric plain cryo? - 8th Generation Honda Civic Forum


Excelerate's response seemed helpful.

It seems like everyone is saying going with the Cryo.

cryo. Its designed to have a uniform grain in the metal. This increase strength and it can take a lot more abuse.

2 Front Premium Series "OE Factory Replacement" Disc Brake Rotors | eBay

These are the rotors I was considering as I believe that my rotors are warped just over 20K miles; It is made of high carbon steel 3500 Series but What advantages does cryo treating it give?

Right didn't think about that. It is $$$ compared to $130 for two rotors. But nonetheless it is still a very reasonably priced option. Thanks

And thank you to everyone else!
