Brakes Needed / Recommendation [R33 GTR]

Hi

Im looking to replace all pads and rotors around my R33 GTR. However I want to retain the factory look of smooth rotors (No slots/holes) and not have any squealing sound.

Front:

I can get Nismo Sports brake rotor - Online / Decent Price

Oem or Brembo - Anyone know where I can get them from?

Rear:

Cannot find any rotors with a smooth surface (Help)

Ive seen a 370z 350mm rotor been used in conjunction with stock R33 calliper.
Can anyone shed light on how this is done and will it fit my wheels?

Pads:

Lots to choose from:

Nismo S tune

Brembo Sport HP2000

Ferodo DS2500 (Im probably going to get these)

[ For anyone recommending me to do a BBK I am limited on size because of my Wheels,See image: Nismo lmgt1 ]


Any help / trade deals would be appreciated? - Thanks

If you want bigger then the Akebono kit is the best value. Would allow you to recoup some first by selling your brembos

There's a good answer above. You might find people engage better if you actually ask and question.

The OP... and myself, wanted to know about OEM rotors, pads, alternative (e.g. cheaper) rotors for both front a rear.

I suspect you understand that offering a BBK was not what I wanted to see, hence my response.

50% of his post is about fitting bigger brakes. If you wan to focus on only half a post you might like to mention it, hence my response.

What options have you considered thus far with regards to discs and pads?

I can confirm that the rear pads on a R32 are the same as the rear pads on a 300zx, much cheaper to get in the usa over "specialty Skyline pads". However im not sure about the rear rotors due to potential dofferences in offset or whatever, perhaps someone can fill in that blank.

Honestly go qith TBA for the rotors, not too expensive and the "Kangaroo Paw" patterning isnt that noticeable as opposed to the drilled/slotted rotors

DS2500 are probably about the best pads you can find with no squeal. Certainly the best ive tried.
I now run Endless pads on my R33 and they are absoluty awesome! Way better performance than DS2500. But they do squeal a fair bit on light braking.

I think this site needs a definitive braking pad size and cross ref guide stickied.
