Ceramics or No?

1y ago


I've been having a bit of a debate with a few friends about this topic. Quite a lot of people assume one must have ceramics on your expensive supercar (or even not expensive) and in my books there really are quite a few reasons for and against. I think up there with the braking power for a lot of people is the fact they give off noticeably less brake dust, meaning your wheels stay cleaner for longer. My main advocate for NOT having them is the squeeking....I can't stand it that my gt3rs sounds like a lorry when you are rolling up to some traffic lights, pisses me off no end.

What do you guys think? Ceramics or no? When do you spring the extra cash or is it all about having those yellow brake calipers..or if that's the case can't you just paint them (shock horror..who would do that..burn him with fire..lol). Thoughts?

  • Most people cant, dont and probably shouldnt (unless you live at a race track) get the brakes hot enough in average day to day driving to get the extra performance out of these brakes.

    If it is a dedicated track car, that is different.
