R1 concepts rotors

R1 concepts? Are their products reliable? Seems to be kinda of cheap for rotors? Wanna to get some thoughts before I purchase thanks.

I have the E-line drilled/slotted on mine. Quality good, customer service good. And best news is that they haven't warped like the other 2 sets of rotors I've had.

I have the drilled/slotted on my RT, and I love them. I would buy them again. Look great, no quality issues. I was very pleased with the customer service.

I've already gone through two sets (about 40,000 miles a set) of R1 Concepts 'premium' rotors on my Charger Daytona RT w/ RT (Sublime Lime - 2007). Bought Posi-quiet ceramic/metallic pads too. The rotors are slotted & drilled and have worked great!! The pads have been so-so, only because they usually develop some mild 'squeal' while braking. I've had my pro-shop look into it... they did some adjustment/sanding, but the squeal comes back eventually. Probably glazing of the ceramic in the pads.

Still - very good rotors and decent pads... especially for the money (under $500 to replace rotors and pads all-around).

I even got my rotors engraved w/ the Mopar "M" and the word "mopar" engraved beneath the "M". Looks cool.

What everyone else says x2!

Used them on my R/T, and when it's time to change the SRT's I'll be looking into them again! Had great customer service and the rotors and pads I got were straight up outstanding!

The rotors seem good and I get a lot of compliments on them, they do look nice. I'm thinking it's the HPS pads that squeal like a pig, to the point of embarrassing. I've gone thru the bedding process a couple times this year and the squeal goes away for a few days then returns.

Hard driving 37K on my R1s drilled / slotted - Centric ceramic pads with zero issues. R1 is the best bang for your buck on rotors and nice people to deal with also.
