Hey guys. I have a 2015 VT automatic. It’s almost time to change my pads but I’m thinking about changing the rotors as well. I’m at 64000 miles. I was wondering should I just go OEM pads and rotors or are there any other aftermarket ones that are better and more effecient?

I put these on from R1 concepts. I was in the same predicament but I’m at 80k miles. I got the front rotors and oem brake pads for $200 bucks. They were having some kind of sale at the time.

That bolt was an absolute menace to remove. I eventually just gave up and pressed out the old ball joints.
