Last week I purchased Centric rotors and Akebono pads to have installed on my Accord. My local shop installed them two days ago for only $87.00 which I was happy about (they also scratched my rims, which I am not happy about). Anyway they asked if I wanted my old parts back and I said sure! So they put them in a box in my trunk. For fun I took them out and looked at them. The rotors had the "normal" I assume, circular wear lines on them, but I didn't really see any major deposits. The pads were Car Quest pads and they had little chunks missing around the edges and were covered in brake dust. So with seemingly clean rotors why would they have vibrated like they did? The new Centric rotors and Akebono pads are great so far. Nice and smooth again! And the hubs of the rotors and the slots in between are painted, so they shouldn't rust.
