Brake Rotors

Postby dangeris » Sat Mar 01, 2008 4:42 pm

Does anyone out there know if an SE-R brake rotor, specifically 05 to 07, would fit our coupe? What's the dimensions of an SE-R rotor compared to the coupe's?

I don't know that the SER's rotors will work. But the G35's will.

Are you kidding me? Who would of thunk? Did you see that in a magazine or something? Are the G35 and the 350Z (I'm assuming non brembo) the same size rotors as ours? What years would fit on our coupe?

Not sure, but Stillen bolted up a set of their G35 AP Racing Rotors and Calipers with no problems

to clarify.. the rear AP Racing Big Brake Kit was a direct bolt on from the G35.. but the front was it's own.

I'll need to talk to our Brake Manager, it could be that the bracketry for the G35 bolted up, not necessarily that the rotors for front or rear are direct replacements.

I can find that out for you on Monday, but you can be certain that we will offer cross-drilled replacement rotors for the Altima. How quickly will depend on the specifics of the brake system.

This goes for pads as well, some Mintex Xtreme and stainless steel brake lines would be an awesome upgrade, and if braking is your thing, the front and rear 4-piston AP BBK is absolutely insane.. our A/C is rediculously impressive.

Yes, Please do check on that Josh. I would like to upgrade to the big brake kit but holy crap, spending close to $4K on brakes is just insane! Doesn't Stillen offer a complete brake kit, both front and back, with SS brake lines? Where I live, deer is known to just jump right out in front of you. Would be nice to know that I can stop faster in a shorter distance than stock.

Dangeris, Try the Maxima brake. I had an 05 Altima and I used the Maxima break.

What type of aftermarket wheels you have? Make sure you have enough clearance.

Front: R.42096.1C and R.42096.2C

Rotora is a good brand that is track proven. Rotora doesn't update there website often, you would need to call them for authorized dealers or information.
