Brembo Sport REAR DRILLED brake rotors match the vehicle’s original equipment rotor dimensions and are fully compatible with its hubs, brake calipers and road wheels. Get a full set of front and rear rotors for a matched appearance on all four corners of your MINI Cooper or MINI Cooper S.
Starting with select castings, Brembo Sport drilled brake rotors undergo the race-born practice of cross drilling to provide multiple paths to disperse built-up heat and gasses. The cross-drilled holes are bi-angle chamfered at the rotor’s outer surfaces to help reduce the cracking caused by repeated high stress, high temperature brake applications.
Brembo Sport drilled brake rotors are coated for corrosion resistance to help eliminate rust and to offer a bold, aggressive appearance to enhance the look of your MINI’s road wheels. Sold per pair; fit all models of MINI Cooper and MINI Cooper ‘S’
NOTE: Brembo Sport drilled brake rotors are not recommended for track use or intended to be used in conjunction with race compound brake pads on the street.
IMPORTANT REMINDER: Slotted, drilled or dimpled rotors offered as OEM replacements should not be considered appropriate for high-speed track use.
While grooved, drilled and slotted rotors offer an enhanced appearance and add some resistance to the boundary layer of gasses that can build up between the pad and rotor, they are not designed to withstand the extreme temperatures that are produced on the racetrack. If they are used on the track, it is very important that the rotors be carefully inspected and should not be driven on if even minor signs of deterioration are seen. Note, too, that if any products are used on the track they are not warrantable.
If your brake wear warning light is illumninated, see replacement sensors.
MINI recommends the brake fluid be replaced every 2 years, more often if you track your car. See ATE Super Blue for replacement brake fluid. ATE Super Blue is a high quality performance fluid that will last much longer than the standard DOT4 fluid. This is an ABS friendly fluid.
