These days there isn't as much margin left between brand-new rotor thickness and the safe minimum machine to and discard thicknesses.

Important note - cars with the Eyesight option take different rear pads and rotors from the non-Eyesight models. The Eyesight gets slightly larger rear rotors, presumably for durability reasons due to Eyesight's greater involvement with the brake system. Front pads and rotors are the same for ES and non-ES models


I'm starting to look at doing the brakes on my 2019 even though there's only a little over 20,000 miles on it so far. My/our main reason - the wife is fully on board with my reasoning having noticed the same uncertain bite being delivered by the OE pads under moderate to hard braking. With that in mind I'm probably looking at Centrics for rotors, and Carbotech 1521/Bobcat pads.


On edit, Centric fronts not in stock at Tire Rack. Went to DBA 4000 T3 instead. Money is not an objection when it comes to having confidence in your car's braking (and the DBAs being in stock now sealed the deal).
