Folks,

Can Tire is the exclusive retailer for Brembos in Canada, and they replace the ATE line that was our prior premium.

By the way, Partsource is a Can Tire company as well. A fellow Time Attack racer used them last season in his S2000 and said: "Hi Laszlo, Used Brembo in all 6 OTA events in 2017. They have less tendency to warping and cracking than the ATE. Best OE replacement rotor." Sounds like a pretty good endorsement.

Dedicated racing brakes and cooling are the way to go for competition of course, but it's good to know where you can get great OE replacement stuff for the street.

I thought that you’d like to know,

They’re just your typical aftermarket Chinese rotor, Nothing special.

Brembo is a quality Italian brand - regardless of the location the items are actually manufactured it's the quality standards that matter.

They make racing brakes and was brilliant when they started partnering with OE auto manufacturers. Not only do performance cars and sports coupes have decent brakes for the street and even light track duty, Brembo effectively enlisted partner organizations to distribute, sell and market their brakes in the worldwide dealer networks.

That's a pretty impressive sales accomplishment. Get other international orginizations to actively market your brand and products at no cost to you, and to pay you for it to boot!

I wonder how they compare to RedStuff or other aftermarket pads?

Brembo has its name over all kinds of performance line cars...it has become the who's who of performance monikers that seems to help boast the validity of that line. Focus RS, Focus ST, Mustang GT, Corvette, H-Cats, Demon....all have them...it must be a higher performance car because it has Brembo brakes. Its almost an expectation now.

I looks like Brembo is using its racing heritage namesake to promote a consumer line, with perhaps a minimal performance increase over stock.

The aftermarket division and the OE division of most part companies are often completely different business units. They use different staff, different processes and different assembly lines. Sure, there may be some cultural commonalities, but that is about it. Brembo's aftermarket rotors are just Chinese rotors and their aftermarket pads are nothing special. Akebono has a similar setup- they have an aftermarket line of rotors (worldpac exclusive) and an aftermarket line of pads. The materials used in their aftermarket pads is not the same as their OE line.

That's what drew me to the Genesis Coupe Track model was the Brembos.

No doubt here, my sig car with factory Brembos weighs in at two tons yet stops in a shorter distance than a 911 of the same year!

But that is the CALIPERS, not the rotors. Mine are 4 piston opposed on all 4 wheels and are tremendous as shipped with Jurid pads. In over 100k miles of driving that includes track days galore the rotors have been off of it many times, new pads have been fitted frequently (even if not worn, as the calipers are super easy to pad slap without removal), and I have never had to rebuild the calipers!

Can't say that about any other Hi Po car I have owned. Not a one.

But the pads they shipped with were very "squealy" and stunk for normal driving because they never get hot. Pads from the aftermarket have helped tremendously and only change the performance slightly. I use Stoptech's proprietary blend, it's a nice compromise...

My Brembo calipers on my Gen Coupe have the Hyundai logo cast into them.

I am having some 6 piston Wilwood calipers and custom brackets made right now, not cheap with the special rotors and pads 3K+.
