RR racing has some good affordable options. You can also role your own Rotors and save some $$$

The margins on Wilwood products are insane. I could have bought the 6R fronts and 4R rears together for just over 2k at my dealer price.

RR is able to rebrand and sell wilwood bbk's for cheap because there is so much margin in it. Nothing wrong with it, should have clarified what I was saying. They are a good option for the price because it is essentially a major brand just relabeled.

Yup they work pretty damn well. Dont expect silence 100% of the time on street. And do your self a favor just skip there pads altogether. I use Carbotech 1521's with wilwood shims on street and XP10/XP8 on track. Swapping pads is super easy and just use the same rotors.

There is a tiny bit of pad overhang but it's minimal and nothing to worry about.
Does everyone have overhang on their pads? I noticed like 5mm or so on mine. I also went with stoptech slotted rotors and hawk pads but I am getting extreme shutter on high speed braking, basically I need to keep chamfering the sides of the pads to make it go away. Maybe I should switch to non slotted rotors to see if it goes away.
