Try factoring in 3X the ware resistance which equals three times the life, and they will not ever warp.
225 shipped vs 330+ ship.... Not seeing it.

Well, lets see, I'm currently at 360,000 miles, so I have some experience on the frequency of brake repair. Another Nay Sayer, who also is a spec racer, was complaining to me how he goes threw a set of rotors and two to three sets of pads in a weekend. I talked him into trying they, and he now gets three full weekends out a set of rotors and goes through 1/2 the number of pads.
I have never warped a rotor on a street car. And any rotor will warp if not installed correctly. And they do not last 3 times as long. Where did you get those numbers?

If this does not resolve the issue, please call in to complete your order.
But seems like a good deal. Way better than refrigerater rotors
Anyone using them? Reviews?

I have. Napa rotors, on the 850 actually. First time not using performance rotors. First time ever warping new rotors.
I have never warped a rotor on a street car.
What about these? $160 for the pair. They even have painted hats so they dont rust out in a week.
Myself and a few of my friends have purchased these, and I have no qualms about putting them on any car I drive.
Side note. Every time I ordered a hat color they always come silver. Not Black. Not Red. Silver.
If it matters to you, you might want to email them after placing your order.

NO, actually it creates a micro grain structure by converting left over austinite from the forging / casting process, converting it to martensite which is a more desirable constituent of the steel amalgam. With the micro grain structure achieved by the process, the rotors will dissipate heat more efficiently and pads will last longer. By the way, the world isn't flat.
So now it saves pads too. Wow. So cyro treating a rotor makes the car lighter or increases the mass of the rotor? You cyro stainless not mild so it does not even make much sense on paper. But in addition, what gains you get on paper are aspects of expansion. Its why gun barrels are cyro treated. Been a long standing myth its for life span when its actually for accuracy... and gun barrels are usually stainless.

Damn, I was afraid of taking a cruise for this very reason for such a long time. Lucky for me VS is here to help out.
Now back to your regularly scheduled program.
