Can anyone tell me what is the best front and rear brake rotors for my 2013 Ridgeline Sport? I looked on Amazon and there's a lot but most have just one in stock. This is my first brake job so I'd prefer to get some recommendations before I purchase. I just installed Wagner rotors with Honda pads on my 2000 Accord (312000 miles) and they work excellent.

Is there something wrong with your current rotors?

As long as my rotors are smooth, I leave them alone.

I have roughly 150,000 miles on my original 2006 rotors. I'm on my 2nd set of brake pads.

Also, I have about 160,000 miles on some 25-year-old rotors on my Infiniti Q45. It's on the 3rd set of pads. The rotors are still smooth after all these years.

I change pads when there is 25% to 30% wear remaining. I don't have rotors turned without having a reason.

The Ridgeline still stops on a dime. The problem is most people following me cannot. Yup..

My mechanic won't let anything but OEM on mine. He says that he has seen too many other issues trying to "upgrade" systems. Just something to consider. I have a Pilot with 240K and a 2007 Ridgeline w/ 180K and both doing great.

230K with EBC slotted and dimpled and just ordered my 3rd front set of slotted and dimpled from realtruck.com. I carry about 800 pounds around in my Ridge every day. Made in Europe, slottled and dimpled in the USA.

Ditto OEMs, unless you're just looking for an appearance upgrade.

I'm another with 160K+ on an '06 with original rotors chugging right along.

If budget allows original rotors, go original. My budget didnt allow so I went with napa premium rotors and honda pads. I had 170k on my original 06 rotors with just a little bit of shaking.
