    Been searching around trying to figure out which is best replacement rotors for 03 Tundra. Looking for coated Rotors heavier, thicker, than OEM. Tired of warped rotors.

    Welcome from SoCal. Hang in there, I'm sure one of the members will chime in. You can also search it out, as it may have been discussed in the past.

    Welcome! Check your brake calipers and see if you have the original WG or the updated WL. If you have the WG’s, I would highly recommend upgrading to the WL’s. Those and slotted rotors will help eliminate warped rotors. Powerstop z36 is a very nice option.

    Welcome from CO! Ditto on the Power Stops. Got them on front and rear for a couple years now. No more front rotor warping.

    Welcome from Texas! I have the power stop rotors. I would recommend them.

    My 06 isn’t my daily but I have the full z36 kit with rotors and calipers. Haven’t had any issues whatsoever and braking is more firm than stock. Just make sure you break them in properly.

    Casper 421. What is there to breaking in rotors? Anything special other than taking it easy?

    Billstien 6112/5160 shocks, EBC Rotors and Pads, lots of little tweeks

    I just discovered that my new-used Doublecab has Powerstop Z23 pads and most likely Powerstop drilled and slotted rotors. I bought the rig with 66,000 miles and these already installed so I have no idea how many miles are on the current pads/rotors (I’m only up to 68,000 now). I can say that at least the front pads are still pretty new. They still show a bit of the tapered toe and heel that comes on them from the factory.

    Currently, I get a very noticeable shudder and pulse after the brakes get warm; like when using the brakes in corners while coming down a pass. I’m pretty sure this is due to a warped rotor. Yes, I primarily use my gears on long grades.

    Before I knew they were Powerstops I was strongly considering the Z36 kit to fix my pulse and make an upgrade to my brakes. But now, I gotta say I’ve got some pretty serious hesitation on Powerstop. Even though they’re a bit more expensive I’m considering EBC and SP performance kits now.

    I can’t guarantee that my current brakes were broken in correctly, or that the wheels weren’t over torqued at some point before I bought the truck. There’s lots of reasons other than the quality of manufacturing/design that could’ve caused the rotors to prematurely warp. But, for as expensive as brakes are, I really don’t want to be replacing rotors again before I’ve even gone through a set of pads!

    So, any one out there want to talk my back into Powerstops?

    Anyone have anything big to say about SP or EBC?
