Running the Frontline rotors on my F150 right now. Probably around or just over 1,000 miles so far, with Thermoquiet pads. Absolutely loving it. Went with a severe service rotor since the OEM units had a recurrent vibration issue; hope it helps.

Thanks everyone for the advice. I am surprised to hear you all say I could get 5-7k out of M1 or PP on this motor I guess I thought it was harder on oil than that. I really like the price on MK5 at walmart down the road perhaps I will stick with 3k

They keep selling because they are chopping prices at incredible rates, 8,000-10k off of Optimas recently. LOL I still wouldn't buy one they are poor handling and steering cars.

I've used them on several vehicles. They're a rotor, and they hold up fine.

Quick correction, I used Penrite 10 Tenths Racing 10W40 in my CBR600. This has recently been replaced by the Penrite 10 Tenths Premium 0W40 in the link given above. Both are 100% group iV / V. The Honda spec is 10W40.
