I just ordered EBC rotors and pads for the 2010 Camry. Did I waste money? It looks like the choices were China rotors or EBC for not too much more.

If your car did not need rotors and pads, yes.

Almost 100K on the original brakes. They're getting a little thin.

I think EBCs are better than white box, but they are no Zimmermans IIRC.

Pads? I've read so many threads that I don't even know any- AKEBONO ProACT! ONE OF US, ONE OF US!

I have Pro Act on my truck. I would have gotten them for the Camry of the EBC kits weren't so much cheaper than buying rotors and pads separate.

Where are the EBC rotors made? I've always wondered if their entry level stuff was also cast in China.

Probably money well spent then

Up here, I change the calipers also; nothing worse than new rotors burning up because of a sticking slide

From what I can tell most are cast in the UK. A few are cast in Italy. If they have switched to China they'll be going back.

Make sure the rotor vane pattern matches the originals. For that application, I have noticed that many aftermarket rotors have a different rotor vane pattern.

I had some EBC green pads on my '02 F150 that cracked and fell apart in < 10,000 miles on me. Not very pleased at all.

Haha. I bought the stage 1 set with the Ultimax2 pads. Supposedly the closet to OEM, and the lowest cost.
