Default Altrom Ultra 8 rotors?

Ran a few searches and couldn't find anything on these. Napa sells them for the STI fitment for $33 a piece for the fronts.

Wondering if anyone is rolling these or has any feedback. Don't want to spend a ton on rotors, would rather spend it on pads.

Thanks,

Here's a link...

Never heard of them, but for 33 a piece give them a shot. Given my experience with cheap rotors you're not going to be a track start with them, but at that price you could afford to throw them away if they didn't work out too well.

Yeah, really cheap and they are made in Canada, not china. Not really sure if that's better but it sounds better. These are for a DD, no track time at all and hardly any aggressive driving anymore with the carseat in the back .

The ones you speak of, I think are not for the sti, just for the 2.5L...I just searched napa cuz I was gonna try em too...and yes I did search the 2005 to make sure I wasn't tripping. The 05 has way more brake rotor selection than the 2004 :-(

You're right. Went to pick them up yesterday and they were definitely not the right ones, way smaller than the rears. I had to return them and order the aimcos. I told them they need to fix their website and computers since they list these for the STI, even Altrom's website lists these for the STI.

Oh well...
