R1 Concepts brakes set review

I want to share my opinion with you guys about R1 Concepts brakes. first of all placing the order took a few minutes by the phone cause of Kevin from R1 who helped me during transaction. There rotors fitment is exactly same as oem. The biggest issue I had only with my old rotors to take them out, hammer did the job lol From time I installed the r1 rotors with hps ceramic pads I drove over 1000 miles with no problems at all. I love the way they look on a car. These rotors are worth it to buy it & definitely I'll buy them again.

I have the R1 concepts slotted rotors on mine and I love them. Paired them up with EBC reds ruff and couldn't be happier. Great quality. My dad had been using them for awhile as well on his MB GL450. Never had any issues.

The more you have to put on it means the wheels is not balanced well from the factory. I don't think I have ever seen more than 4 of the small squares on any of the wheels I have ever owned, you have 12 I think. It's not a big deal. You can also paint them if you don't like how much they stick out.

Glad you like your brakes.
