These are definitely NOT oem rotors that have been machined. The specs are identical (ie they are not thick-cheek like the other GM rotors), but the casting is entirely new. They are Not stamped "made in brazil" like the other sets, and the "vanes" are slightly thicker than the oems. The finish is much shinier than the oems, but I don't think they are plated. They weight 36lb, just like the oems and thick-cheeks.

The thick-cheek rotors have the same overall dimension as these rotors, but the "cheeks" are approx 1/32" thicker, inside and outside surfaces. Should last longer before cracking.
An interesting note, where-as the oem and thick-cheeks are CAST with the min thickenes 30.3mm, these have the min-thickness STAMPED in, and it is listed in standard units (1.195").

Dave,

So what's the consensus on how these things hold up as compared to the other brands of cross drilled rotors? I like the look, but the cracking under the stresses of a track day is what keeps me away from them.

y2khardtop,

Those rotors look good, any ideas on prices???
Dave said $115 per corner in his previous thread...can't confirm or deny the price personally.

Until I set up my own cryo box (hopefully soon), I refuse to pay someone to do it. The one set of rotors I had cryo'd didn't seem to do any better than stock. Chris at [email protected] has the rotors for $115 delivered, but I hear gmpartsdirect has them for a good price too.
