Here are the advantages that follow with having ceramic-composite or carbon-ceramic brake rotors and pads.
What if I told you the brakes on your next car would never fade, improve your gas mileage and last 150,000 miles? You might think I was full of it or on drugs. But ceramic-composite or carbon-ceramic brake rotors and pads are real and offer these advantages. They might increase the price of a Porsche or BMW vehicle by $9,000-$15,000 though.
Ceramic or carbon-fiber composite rotors are extremely durable. In fact, manufacturers claim that they’ll never need replacement – at least with “normal” driving. They’re also resistant to the kind of distortions and wear that lead to pedal pulsation – merely an annoyance in the “real world,” but a noticeable performance issue on the track.
