Does anyone have any idea, or does anyone here have drilled rotors on their Genesis? I have a 2012 r-spec and I want to put drilled and slotted rotors. I am having a heck of a time locating them.

I actually just received a set of drilled and slotted rotors tonight that I purchased from a place called R1Concepts. The ones that you will get for that price are off from their "E-Line". I paid $286 and change for a set of front and rears. They don't currently have pads for our cars in stock, so I picked up a set of Powerstop pads for $150 from CarID.com

Their shipping is pretty good, so they get my recommendation for now.

I was really happy that I found them. The only other place that I found any sort of 'performance' rotors was on CarID at a substantial markup. I was going to just go with OEM replacements, but decided to go with something that would look good behind the new 20" wheels that I bought. ;)

I went to BRAKEMOTIVE. I got the front + back + all the brake pads (exact same ones above) for about $179.00 shipped.
I have had 0 zerooooo issues and I have had these installed more than 3+ years. No fade, no shudder no nothing. I get lots of compliments and it really does help stopping better. No squeals or anything from brakes.

Thanks for mentioning them. I just ordered a set of F&R brakes for my Lexus from them for $132. ;)

how many How many miles do you think this set is good for. Compared to OEM I've been interested in the same setup from Power stop for my 4.6.

If I had to guess, I couldn't see getting less than 30k+ out of the front pads, and probably triple that out of the rears if not more, depending on your driving style. I don't drive my car hard and I was able to get almost 50k out of the oem rotors/pads. In all honesty, the only reason that I even decided to 'upgrade' was because I was getting a bit of a shimmy under braking but didn't trust any of the brake joints around here to resurface the rotors, **(and I wanted a decent looking set of brakes behind my new wheels. ) ;)

Well here is my experience on the 3.8 2012 Genny.


I have read here and other forums that people were able to get almost 100,000 miles on the OEM brakes? Even half of that is crazy good if that were the case but in my case I am 25,000 miles and the brakes were all at minimum to pass inspection i think 3 in the front and 4 in the back.


I purchased something with drilled and slotted to stop better and purchased "Details about Powerstop Brake Disc and Pad Kits 4-wheel set Front & Rear New K5845" from eBay which were listed for $375 and got it for around $318 after a coupon (15% off).

The backs were straightforward and simple like other disc brakes. The fronts were bit more and needed a bunch of tools that I am glad I had. I had curved pliers which I needed to get the cotter pins from the pins that hold the brake pads in and then I had to use a screwdriver to wedge the pad out a bit and then used a crowbar to compress the brake calipers. I did have some trouble with the rotor screws but using an impact wrench it came out but putting 1 of the screw back in it snapped so I only used 2 screws. Overall relatively straight forward job (I had to do one side again as I did not compress the pistons in far enough and couldn't use the new rotor and the crowbar technique without damaging them).


There is a break in procedure that I followed and so far its not bad but I do hear some faint sound which I hope will go away on its own lol. I haven't bled the brakes and will try doing that later to see if that makes any difference.

I did have to use a wire brush to clean the calipers off and saw huge flaking of the black coating that's on them so will have to keep an eye on that as well.

I’ve done some research into brake upgrades on my 2013 5.0 r-spec. Adams Rotors in California makes a very nice made to order set in any configuration you want. I’ve had EBC rotors and pads on my previous cars and recently got a drilled and slotted kit with pads for $379 shipped from THmotorsports. EBC is out of England and uses very high quality steel in their rotors. I’ve seen 100,000-150,000 miles with aggressive use in my and my friend’s cars with no signs of warping or uneven wear to the rotors. Granted you should keep an eye on the pads and do a good break in when you first install the rotors. I usually get anywhere from 30,000-50,000 miles out of pads depending on their composition. I’m not very easy on pads either. Highly recommend EBC if you want a lot of bang for your buck. You can also get them through amazon albeit the price is somewhere around $500 for that same kit I mentioned earlier if you order through them. As far as the calipers go, I see that some people on here are applying the r-spec coupe brembos to the sedan? That might make sense if you have a 3.8 or 4.6 as they have the free floating disc brakes (not stationary 4 piston). The 5.0 r-spec already has 4 piston stationary brakes up front from the factory. Plus the sedan weighs 4500 + lbs. Not sure you’d be doing much by going to brembos engineered for a 3500lb car (the coupe).

I got over 130,000 miles on original front pads on my 2011 4.6 Genesis. Never needed rotors in over 200,000 miles. Rear brake pads lasted to about 160,000 miles. Only replaced pads once in over 200,000 miles and used Hyundai oem pads. The OEM pads and rotors on the first Generation Genesis are outstanding. The Genesis replaced an Acura which was driven on the same roads same number of miles per year and the Acura needed brake pads every 40k to 50k miles.

I agree and will be replacing my brakes with OEM parts when they need. I am at 101500 miles now and all is good and smooth. Really amazing if you think about it
Sure some aftermarket setups may stop a bit better but you are going to deal with brake dust and replacements often.
Either way - we have a fun vehicle!
