Powerstop Brakes offer superior braking performance by lowering operating temperatures and reducing warpage. For the very best in stopping power, you'll want to use Powerstop Brakes. Powerstop Brakes use rotors that combine the features of cross-drilled and slotted rotors to give the best cooling and water run-off available in the market today. These units are now becoming available for a wide-range of vehicles including Honda, Mitsubishi, Chevrolet and Chrysler products and are silver cadmium plated. For the best choice in brakes, Powerstop Brakes are the way to go.
Powerstop Brake Rotors are made by Autospecialty, a subsidiary of TRW, and are used on law enforcement and emergency vehicles with severe braking requirements. Powerstop Brake Rotors are also popular with taxi companies. OE quality rotors are used as a base stock. Each Powerstop Brake Rotor requires a specific drilling pattern so it doesn't interfere with the cooling vanes. This information is programmed and run on a CNC (computer numerical control) machine. The end result is a brake rotor that is mill balanced to prevent vibration, and a ground finish that eliminates runout and taper. Powerstop Brake Rotors are also double disc ground to ensure parallelism and are non-directional finished.
Cross drilled rotors run about 200-250 degrees cooler when used with high quality pads. This reduces the chance of warping, which has been a big problem in recent years, particularly on late model American-made vehicles. You'll also experience improved wet weather braking with shorter stopping distances. If you experience pulsation on your brake pedal, your rotors may be warped. You could turn them, but they will be thinner and unable to dissipate heat as quickly and will soon warp again.
Some people prefer slotted rotors because of the problems that appeared when cross drilled rotors first came on the market. At the time, holes were frequently drilled too large and penetrated the cooling vanes and were not radiused or chamfered. That problem is rare today with cross drilled rotors, unless they are subjected to extreme abuse, like in competition. Slotted rotors do help dissipate hot gasses, but not to the same degree as cross drilled and also tend to wear brake pads more quickly. That's because the slots act like a razor blade each time they go by. Whatever your braking needs, be assured Powerstop has the product to fit your vehicle.
Powerstop cross-drilled rotors improve brake ventilation resulting in dramatically lower rotor temperatures
Use Powerstop brakes with high performance brake pads from your favorite manufacturer for an unbeatable combination
Lower temperatures mean less chance of rotor warpageyou can finally get rid of the steering wheel shimmy for good
Powerstop drilled rotors are a great cosmetic touch to your open-spoke wheels, since the holes have a sharp, racy lookWarped rotors again? Those of us who enjoy driving our cars at the limit start getting used to the pulsing pedal and shaking steering wheel that accompany warped rotors every few thousand miles. If you're tired of it and ready for a permanent fix, let us introduce you to Powerstop brakes. Powerstop brakes utilize drilled rotors for exceptional coolingafter all, rotor warp is usually due to overheated rotors that aren't able to dissipate the heat they generate fast enough. By using cooling holes, Powerstop brakes can run as much as 200 degrees cooler than stock vented rotors. Combined with heat treated metals, that means you can get five times the life out of your Powerstop brakes that you can get from stock brakes. Powerstop brakes come straight from the factory fully balanced and CNC machined so they're ready to go right out of the box. Just install your Powerstop brakes with a fresh set of semi-metallic or metallic pads and enjoy the best braking performance you've ever experienced. Best of all, Powerstop brakes are fully compatable with your stock brake system and require no special parts or tools to install. So ditch the brake fade and warped rotorsinstall Powerstop brakes on your performance ride today.Drilled Powerstop brake rotors do a lot more than look great behind your alloy wheelsthey also reduce brake fade and extend rotor life. Each of the ventilation holes in your Powerstop brake rotors allow air to flow through both surfaces of the rotors. The result is as much as a 200 degree difference in surface temperature from Powerstop brake rotors to stock brake rotors. Of course, the holes in your Powerstop brake rotors are CNC machined, just like the Powerstop brake rotors themselves, to ensure consistent production tolerances and exceptional balance. That balance is essential to preventing brake warping, which results in the annoying pulsing sensation you get at the wheel. Powerstop brake rotors resist warpage thanks to their improved cooling and their tight machining tolerances. And it's easy to install Powerstop brake rotors on your vehicle. Each set of Powerstop brake rotors is produced especially for the application on which it is intended to fit, and all you need to add is a set of your favorite semi-metallic or metallic brake pads. The combination of high-quality pads and Powerstop brake rotors will give you shorter stopping distances with less fade and up to five times the rotor lifespan. So stop throwing money away on stock vented rotorsupgrade to Powerstop brake rotors and enjoy smooth, powerful braking mile after mile.
