Blackout

2013 RT Journey AWD Brakes & Rotors

Recommended Posts

Good evening

 

What would you suggest getting for brakes & rotors I have the big brakes & rotors OEM that are still on the vehicle 

 

They have lasted me from 2013 till now 

 

I was wondering what would you get OEM Brakes & Rotors or should I go after market ( What brand would you suggest & do they have the same thickness of pads like OEM does including Rotors?)

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

 

If OEM what are the part #s for the pads & rotors thanks again

I used mid grade aftermarket (Brakebest Select from O'reillys). No issues. Any quality aftermarket brand will be on par with OEM and much cheaper.

My 2012 SXT with smaller brakes went thru 2 sets of front brakes and rotors in first 2 years and only 20 000 kms on them. Changed all around in 2015, on the same pads and rotors, perhaps the OEM rotors were upgraded to a new supplier or better materials at some point ?

For 2013 they upgraded the brakes on Journeys and Caravans,bigger calipers,pads and rotors made a world of difference and makes one wonder why it wasnt done from day 1 of production....idiots

2009 was a bad year for Chrysler overall.

Hey, is Brembo a brand that's available in the USA?

It's a big brand over here and their parts are known to be top quality and last well, I would think at least as good as manufacturers original stuff.

Best thing about them being they are usually cheaper than originals and most folk here consider them an upgrade. 

I fit them to customers cars regularly.
