Those looking to keep their stock calipers and want a decent option for upgraded brakes nonetheless should look no further. The company I've been buying brakes from is up in Toronto, and are very reasonable. They even said it would be four weeks for my set to ship and it was delivered today.

Here they are: black powder coated, cross drilled and slotted rotors, and full carbon metallic pads all for 200. Stainless finish for $179 whole kit.

That looks like the actual rotor is powder coated? You will have to let us know how that works in actual use, I have a hard time believing that standard PC would take the heat on a rotor, also I assume you will have the contact surface machined? What type of material is used in the pads and what is the friction rating printed on them?

I've used these exact kits on my Silverado and an envoy and front brakes on a Sedona. No issues. They offer uncoated rotors (stainless but still with rust protectant) for $179. The pad obviously takes the coating off immediately, but as for the ribs and the centers stay coated.

"Meets or Exceeds ISO 9002 / QS9000 / TUV / VDA 6.1 World Standards."
Improve initial bite and reduce up to 35% pedal travel.
Outperforms ceramic and semi-metallic pads in tests.
Up to 40,000 KM of Smooth, Progressive, and Controlled Braking."

That's just off Amazon. Either way when I bought the car, they squeaked anyway. Maybe just some clip grease needed, but either way. Trucks had these for 3 years or so no issues.

They're electroplated, not powder coated.

Yeah I think i found on amazon, is this it?
https://www.amazon.com/Max-Brakes-Coate ... ced+Brakes

I think you guys should read the description a bit more, its clearly just electrocoated paint not PC and they don't offer anything Stainless, not aware of any brake rotor that would be since they are all basically Cast Iron or a at 10x a carbon ceramic...

Also doesn't tell you who actually makes them just that its "machined" in CANADA meaning prob over seas product to start as are most.
I bought into new gen raybestos stuff for my latest project they have actual lab stuff on their new coatings, will report back next year I guess

Just going off what they told me, they gave the 4 week estimate that they had to coat the rear rotors.

By stainless I meant stainless finish, most likely zinc coated like most are.

Those are their ceramic pads though too, that's why they give the PN to upgrade to full carbon metallic.
