Hello and thank you for trusting us with your Car question, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you today.
May I know the year,make and model of your vehicle?
OK Before we go into the brands you've mentioned, Have you considered original pads and rotors?
no you think I should
To be honest I would. Raybestos pads and rotors are good but they are no match for originals.
The dust level they create and the longevity is much better with originals Especially when it comes to rotors.
I've seen after market rotors warp so quickly after buying it is unbelievable.
If you are OK paying the original prices which I can help with I would go original
Let me get you some prices so we can compare, Is that OK?
hum I'm in Canada so let me call the dealer one sec
Get the part numbers off of the dealership. We can find better prices online. Just give them the VIN number and have them give you the part numbers.
hum no I won't get into that
The car is for only a year or two so
So you want to discuss after market options?
Do you know the Aimco
Yes Amicos are good rotors, Super premium or extreme service didn't really make a difference. I would go with extreme service. They seem to be the least prone to warpage and rusting.
Now for pads raybestos are good. Use ceramic pads. They dust alot but they are the closest to originals and they are queit.
Did you have any other questions for me?
Ok thanks. How about the Raybestos rotors vs the Aimcos
I would go Raybestos rotors and pads.
ok which pads the reg ceramics, prem ceramics, or super prem ceramics
Go prem ceramics. They are not the cheapest ones and are typically used by most shops with good results.
Do you know the brand WBR in rotors and pads?
ok thanks. Can you relist this last one on WBR or I can ask a 'new' question maybe
ok that will do take your time I don't really need the answer today

Raybestos rotor : $49
WBR rotor : $38
