rotor recommendation

I need to replace my rotors. I've got an OEM brake setup. The OEM rotors are nearly $450. Are there any equivalent aftermarket rotors offered at a lower price that others have had good experience with (equal performance)?

My pads have plenty of life so i plan on sticking with them with the new rotors.

Thanks,
Rob

OEM from FCP Euro is the way to go, in my opinion. If you ever need new ones, they will warranty the replacements for free.

You can look into PFC rotors for a questionable performance gain that you will only see on the track. However, given FCP's warranty, I don't think they are worth it. Hope this helps!

Second. I went this route and when the rotors I bought new this season end up toasted because of HPDE, I plan to utilize that lifetime warranty

Important to note though that I believe you have to pay the shipping to send back the parts under warranty, but I will take the $75 shipping cost over shelling out another $450 for rotors.
