There are "better" options out there. Canadian Tire is hoping to sell those things to commuters and minivans, not performance car owners

Canadian Tire is a great place to get a BBQ. That's about it.

if you want something cheap to last you a year or so then go for it. these are probably the ones made off shore, ie: china. we've use them in our shop (not from crappy tire, but same kinda stuff) in dealer used cars because they want it done cheap. I seen the quality, and I wouldn't put them on my car

my friend has used those rotors on her VW Passat and turn out brake pad wears faster, doesn't stop as good and rotors warped few times ~ which that didn't happen when she had the factory rotors etc...

reason why she had those done is because her car is from califonia, gotta pass the government inspections and can tire was saying she has very low front brakes and rear brakes so the car wouldn't pass; they offereed her that package and she thought she doesn't have a choice as if she takes the car away to fix brakes, she will have to pay for the inspection again...

Hmmm, I wonder if the inspectors @ Canadian Tired really were concerned about her "worn out brakes", or were they more concerned with creating a situation where they a consumer was coerced into purchasing new brakes for their car.

In any case, we'll never know. What we DO know is that two professional automotive mechanics from VIC have warned you to steer clear of these rotors.

I am working in can tire as service advisor now and I am also a third year apprentice. I can tell you that selling the ate rotor is a rather rare option for myself since they cost more and not many technician has experience with them. It is just something we kind of shy away since we don't want any come back for squeeling or what not. Also the technician gets pay for doing the provincial safety inspection already, whether the customer wants the brake job done or not doesn't really matter since there is always work order waiting in canadian tire, the tech can just jump on to another job.

btw, I think the ATE's only has rear's for wrx's.... there is no listing for front's..... so I guess there is no point for considering them at all...

I asked about these are my local CT today for my '02 WRX, and they said they had 'em (would have to order)...$65 each right now (on sale)...I'm assuming they were the fronts...I'll have to check again.

Anyway, they also sell these through Tire Rack, with some reasonable reviews, including track use (no listing for WRX though). A quick google also seems show that Ate brakes are or were OE on Alfa's and Mercedes...decent enough references. Sabine Reck also used their 'Power Disc' (appears to be very similar to the 'PremiumOne' model) on an M3 in winning a 24 hour race at the Nurburgring according to ATE's website. Once again, pretty good reference.

Offshore garbage? Perhaps not. I'm still going to consider them for the brake job I need to do this spring.
