    Default Aftermarket 308 rotors & pads

    I've had enough of brake carbon?] dust on my alloys and am keen to try aftermarket pads and rotors e.g. Brembo, TRW, Mintex etc

    But a dealership recommended [of course] Peugeot pads and rotors stating the softer rotors and pads are better

    Can anyone comment on whether there are any considerations to be made with after market rotors and pads or recommendations ?

    I'd try and source a set of ATE ceramic brake pads, combined with (for no other reason than brand consistency), ATE non-slotted brake discs.

    TRW (Lucas) are great pads but they leave the MAXIMUM amount of dust. My next try will be greenstuff but I don't know what the dust rating is.
    ....now watch a Peugeot turn into a corner!

    I would strongly recommended brembos which are reasonably priced from Eurocarparts (aka ASV).

    Fitted new front Brembo pads and rotors to my 207 Gti. Little or no dust and excellent brake feel and stopping. Quite funny really as rears are original pug pads and the back wheels now dust up rapidly and look dirty while the front wheels are clean.

    My garage says they use TRWs and that they will leave less dust than the Peugeot ones, maybe there are different types of TRW pads ?

    Hi all, my rear rotors have worn out

    It seems the rear rotors unlike the front ones are a hub type with sealing bearings ?

    I can get after market rotors but they don't have to come with the sealed cartridge bearings [optional] and the advise the rotor supplier offers is that the bearings don't need to be replaced unless they are worn

    What are others experiences, if I replace the rear rotors should I also always replace the bearing kit [& abs ring] ?

    Get yourself a set of RDA brake pads and rotors. If you want the part numbers for your car, provide me the specific model, year, trans, body type, engine details, etc.

    You have the option of solid, slotted or dimpled rotors. They are cheap and good quality. You can pick them up from almost any brake & clutch wholesaler. Plan on spending no more than $450 for front, rear rotors and brake pads.

    I have been using them for 12 years with no problem on a variety of cars, including most recently on my Citroen C5 and Pug 407.

    If you want low dust pads, try a set of ceramic pads. Unfortunately, they don't deliver the stopping performance of std euro pads.

    Here's a link to the post I put up a few years ago on my experiences with ATE Ceramic pads on the front of our 308 Touring.

    ATE Ceramic brake pads

    All I can say is they're fantastic - fully recommended, and now the rear wheels get dirty where the fronts just don't.

    After all these years they still look like new - including the discs.

    Cheers
