Front Brake rotors/pads required for 2015 Giuletta QV
« on: October 21, 2018, 10:17:04 PM »
Hi All,

Recently had the car serviced and my mechanic said the brake discs at the front need replacing/pads and I should change the tyres too as the P-Zero's are getting thin.

Just wondering what everyone would suggest brake rotors/pads wise? Are there any good rotors from Alfastumper or alfisti that I should look at or more AU local brands like DBA below

I believe I need the 330mm as I have the larger brembo brakes

Thanks in advance, just want to get the right gear and make sure my Alfa runs smoothly and performs as well as she looks

Itís hard to beat Tar-Ox G88 rotors for striking looks and decent construction, but they arenít at all cheap.

Across several marques and varying workloads Iíve been happy personally with the dimpled and slotted rotors from RDA, matched with their recommended pads. Prices are very amenable.

Hey mate,

Can I simply recommend purchasing a set of OEM-like replacement rotors and pads. Don't opt for the 'sport' pads or rotors if it is a daily driver. A few mates have made that mistake and not only does it cost a hell of a lot more, but the benefits for normal everyday use are pretty much nill.

Plus being that they are more agressive they wear out heaps faster.

DBA or Bosch rotors and Bendix pads will be more than adequate. Unless of course the car gets it's fair share of 'enthusiastic driving', than you may want to upgrade. But being the Brembo's, I highly doubt you would run out of brakes, even with stock equipment.

Just my two cents, Andrew.

just had a quote from my mechanic from his supplier:

OE Equivalents
rotors $80 each
pads $65 each

Might just go with that option if you guys don't think it's worth looking into anything else higher spec since it's just a daily driver.

PM me if you want more details he's not a euro specialist mechanic by name but a family friend who I know for years and takes care of his cars therefore mine ^_^.

Found out the prices he quoted were just above cost so I don't quite know if he'll extend the pricing to non-family just a heads up.

Parts arrived this morning so I'll get them put on this week and give them a run in once I've organised costco to change the front tyres.
