Brakes Shopping Demystified

At one point or another, you probably asked yourself some of the following questions:

What brake pads are the best?
Should I use OEM components?
What causes pad failure?
What is better- Slotted or Drilled Rotors?
Are all performance rotors created equally?
Are Big Brake kits really better?
Can I use racing brake pads on the street?
What makes brake pads work?
What causes Warped Rotors?
What makes my brakes squeak, and how do I fix that?
If you have already found the answers to your questions and know what type of brakes you want, the next step is to figure out where to get them. There are many stores that sell brakes with some claiming to "offer" deals that you know are too good to be true. But, we all know the old adage about deals that are too good to be true, don't we? Really, when it comes down to it, I know the most important thing for driving enthusiasts like ourselves is getting the RIGHT PART, ON TIME, and at a fair price.

So we found a fantastic store that sells a ton of brakes at a fair price. Actually, that's all sells: brakes! Their 'brakes-only' business model means you get one of the widest selection of brands anywhere.

They have over 50,000 brake pads and rotors in-stock and over 92% of their orders are shipped the same day.
