I found these on eBay, shocked at the price for them.

The compatibility thing says it will fit my car..........should I pull the trigger and get them?

If its an actual picture of them, I'm gonna say no, as they have 6 lugs.

Cheap rotors are bad news. Cheap "drilled and slotted' rotors are even worse. I'd say steer clear even if they are the correct ones.

^This x2


And I'm confused with this listing.

It shows rotors with 6 lugs. Under brand name it says "Centric", which is a reputable brake company, under other part # it says "EBC" which is a totally different but also reputable brake company. But these are far too cheap to be either.

The pictures may not reflect to actual color, size and shape.

Note: This item is not Centric product


Doesnt anyone read the description before buying stuff anymore? or even before asking questions / commenting? It takes less time to read the description than it does to post a new topic or reply to a topic. The picture is obviously a generic pic they use to sell rotors. Its saves them a lot of time opening each and every different box to take a pic of every style, shape, design they sell.

as for the brand, dont know why they couldnt change or select a different brand. Id steer clear just for that reason let alone cheap rotors are a bad idea

EBC makes the best brake products you can buy for the Impala. The photo is EBC, the price says knockoff. I wouldn't ever buy rotors on ebay. Anyone who does wouldn't know a quality rotor if it hit him in the face.

Not necessarily.. For pads, I agree. For rotors, Centric also makes great brake products.

I won't buy Centric/Powerslot/Stoptech since they offshored production and put hundreds of Americans out of work. Their product was never equal to EBC anyway. Centric/Powerslot/Stoptech makes adequate, middling at best rotors. If you want a performance rotor made in the USA, Raybestos highline dimpled/slotted rotors are about $225 for a set of four. Regular Raybestos is mostly China now too, but their USA factories have moved to performance oriented products and they've actually increased their American workforce in the last five years. Their quality is better than China Centric, but not as good as EBC.

What's that saying. 'If it seems to good to be true'.
Stay away. It's your safety and those in your car at risk. Cool

I've been through aftermarket rotors including 'power slots' with hawk pads. I went back to OEM pads/rotors. Nothing else out there lasts as long and produces LESS dust and noise.

Unless you have an all out modded car to race, stick with OEM for best results Cool

Yeah I would just stick with a good set of blank rotors Billy.
