I must replace 4 bolt rotors with std 6 bolt type to mate my new wheels.
The basic steel discs are going to cost me £60. :?

The Gokinetix look worthy of consideration :) .

Can anyone rate the Gokinetix rotors?. Are they as hard wearing as claimed - better than steel?

I've emailed the company for more info and will let you know if I get any useful feedback.

I've been to both websites and both claim no squels, more power, yada yada. I'm also interested in this. If anyone has or had any experience with Aluminum rotor, I'm interested to find out how they perform.
