    Brakes

    What are the best options to replace and upgrade the stock rotors and keep the stock brake system?

    I used the brakes off an old Ford truck I bought from Hertz Truck Rental. They were cheeper than the stock brakes and the pads are less. They work great!

    What truck? What are options and down side?

    Stock rotors are just too expensive in my opinion. If there are other options, pls share. Can you use Axxis M5 pads on these "truck" rotors?

    No down side. All gain. Now Hertz can service my M5 and they charge less than the dealer for brakes.
