A couple questions regarding the brakes on my 2011 Range Rover Supercharged. I need to place an order w/ RockAuto for some other parts and thought I might as well order some brakes pads (and rotors) to save on shipping while I am at it. So here are the questions:
- What type of pad life (mileage) do you guys typically see on a set of pads for the big S/C Brembo brakes? The previous owner had the Fr & Rr pads done at 14K miles. This seems pretty low for pad life, but I know the RRSC is a heavy beast w/ performance brakes. I am now at 34K miles, so based on the previous change at 14K miles I feel like I must be getting close to needing a pad/rotor replacement.
- I read in this thread (https://www.rangerovers.net/forum/6-...f-2011-sc.html) that a lot of people like the Textar rotors and the Hawk pads. Where you guys sourcing the Textar rotors in the USA? I am not seeing any online vendors for Textar rotors for the RR in the US. Lots of UK links come up when searching for the Textar rotor Part Number.
- Anybody have experience w/ the Powerstop ceramic/carbon pads for the Range Rover? I have used Powerstops (and rebranded Centrix) in the past on BMW's with great results. Anybody running these on the RRSC? If nobody had any insight, ill probably stick w/ the Hawks based on the input here: https://www.rangerovers.net/forum/6-...f-2011-sc.htmlI should mention that I am looking for low-noise/low dust pads. The current pads (OEM Land Rover Brand) squeal terribly and generate a ton of dust. The wife does not like either of these things.
Thanks in advance guys!
