I bought my 04 STI a few weeks ago. The guy told me he got a good deal on some race/street brake pads and installed them 4k miles ago. not sure what brand they are. but anyway. they are very good brakes, only problem is... they are race/street brakes on stock rotors.. they are eating my rotors apart! there is a decent sized gap on the outer end of the rotors, and my brakes make that annoying squealing sound at low speeds when braking.
should i replace the rotors and brake pads, or just the pads to fix this?
