EBC Slotted Rotors and Greenstuff Pads Installed

I noticed the stopping power on the Commander wasn’t up to par. The factory pad and rotors I’ve replaced actually looked like they had 80% life left. Vehicle has 48k miles on it. This was surprising. I didn't notice any glazing.

So, I just installed EBC USR slotted rotors and Greenstuff pads (7000 series front ; 6000 series rear) on the XK. Fitment was excellent and they looked like quality parts. I’m still breaking them in and will report back after bedding in the pads.

I have drilled rotors and the 2 times a year I do a trail, usually muddy, I always get a pebble stuck in it. I hear the slotted rotors aren't as bad for it.

Yeah that my only worry about drill and slotted rotors and wheeling. I play in the mud a lot so that wouldn't be cool

I highly recommend staying away from drilled rotors for wheeling. The most I would do is slotted which will help prevent crap from bedding into the pads by providing an escape/channel.

Whatever you do, don't getting hem off eBay though. Buddy of mine got his rotor split in half. Don't even ask I couldn't believe it until I saw it too. But you get what you pay for. Remember that. You don't want any cheap brakes either, just make sure it's not some china bull****, I always say U.S, or Canada made parts when dealing with brakes/rotors.
