Easy installation, good value, huge pad selection
Wish they were a bit lighter....
GM seems to be notorious in installing brakes that are to small for the weight of it's cars. Most people see it in the F-body; i.e. Camaro's and Firebird's, but it extends to small sedans also. After a few times at a local road course, I found the stock brakes woefully inadequate, even when bolstered with SS lines, better pads, and high-temp brake fluid. So I turned to Baer, and they happened to have a fit for my small Oldsmobile. I opted for plain 13" rotors, but of the two-piece variety for weight-savings. Installation couldn't have been easier; they bolted right on with no modifications. The included PBR pads work well on the street and give good pedal feel, and using track-specific pads (I chose Carbotech's Panther+), there is always plenty of power and no fading even with extreme heat buildup. Two big thumbs up to the Brakemeisters at Baer!
