Review: EBC Ultimax Rotors and Hawks break pads squeak...

My Experiences with a brand new set of EBC Rotors and Hawk brake Pads...

The first 100 miles, there was no noise. But after about 400 miles of driving, the car sound more like metal to metal grinding. I thought it was the pads so purchased EBC pads and OEM pads but it does not make any differences. I even had the shop turn the rotors but that does not help.
What other rotor do you recommend? Go back to OEM rotors and OEM pads?

Hell no to going back to stock. Have you tried bedding the brake pads?
