 In this guide (Part 1 of 2 on brakes), we'll clarify the differences between "replacement" (OE factory style) and "performance" (aftermarket) brake pads and rotors. We'll discuss the appeal of each, their general advantages, and factors to consider when shopping for them. We'll also look at a few "sample" customers based heavily on actual shoppers of ours, their vehicles, and available choices they might be pondering.


 If upgrading brakes has always been on your wish list, there's never a bad time to do it. But consider that doing so at the point when your old pads and rotors are worn out makes a great deal of economic sense. Since you've gotten your full money's worth out of those existing pads and rotors, spending a little more for performance brake components now means just that - because you are only spending a little more than you would have to for OE parts anyway.


 So if you're at that point, this article is a must-read! Time and labor must be spent removing old parts no matter what you decide to replace them with. Our article Is It Time For New Brakes? will help you recognize the warning signs that brake components are worn out or in need of replacement.
