Costumer Reviews

The old rotors on my 1999 Honda Civic EX Coupe had gone 160,000 without being turned (its a stick shift and I put on a lot of highway miles) and I was on my second set of brake pads. When I applied the brakes at 65 mph, the steering wheel would shutter indicating that the rotor surface were irregular (either parallelism or warped) and required machining. The brake pads were also in need of replacement.

My choice was to have the rotors machined for $15.00/each if there was enough meat on them or purchase new rotors for $20/each. I was a little concerned about the quality because I never heard of Centric before, but everything worked fine. The rotors mounted up with no problems and there is zero pulsation or movement of the steering wheel and the brake operation is 100% smooth and quiet. I also purchased Raybestos brake pads from Amazon Raybestos SGD465AC Service Grade Disc Brake Pad Set which also contributed to the good operation of the brakes.

As a side note, the 1999 Civic EX Coupe and SI Coupe share the same front brake rotor which is larger compared to the other variations of the Civic for 1999.

I Drive the 99 Civic EX Coupe and took it in to get an estimate on a brake job because my steering wheel wobbled when I Braked and they gave me a $330 estimate. Way too Much! I Grabbed two of these (make sure you buy two because this is the price for one rotor) and some Duralast Gold %100 Ceramic Brake pads From Auto Zone ($39. Get Full Ceramic. Semi metallic pads are what Warped my Rotors). I Recommend you get your pads from them because as long as you own your car you get a lifetime warranty on the pads. just take them in before they get down to the metal and they replace them for free.

To Make a long Story Short I Spent about $100 in parts and saved roughly $230 doing it my self. The Rotors seem like they are good Quality Rotors and they fit my honda well.
