I got new tires on my truck today and they informed me that I needed front pads & rotors! I was warned about my pads awhile ago & I planned to replace them on my own. I told the rep this & he warned me that the rotors are not the standard rotors, and that it would be a tough job for me to undertake. I was skeptical as he walked me over to a chart/display trying to illustrate what he meant. He said that it wasn't a traditional floating rotor. So here I am, researching the process & I don't see anything mentioned about strange front rotors. So I have two questions:
1-Was this guy just trying to get my business or was he thinking of the heavy duty 7 lug rotors? Found out through more research that he probably thought my truck was a 2wd, which apparently has special front rotor/hubs.
2-OP, how are those replacement rotors holding up? I see you went with the ceramic pads but can anyone speak to their premium semi metallic pads on performance & brake dust compared to stock?
