I researched pretty heavily the R1s and wasn't convinced enough those would fit, so...Any Kia Soul Pros around who can answer some fit questions for me??
I need to replace all my brake pads and rotors on my 2011 Kia Soul+ 2.0
I'm considering the R1 Concepts CEOE 10751 Eline Series Kit(Pads+Rotors-Rear&Front) mainly because i hope they all fit perfect - but there are no reviews and i can't figure out if they will fit.
Or and this is my preferred option
Front Rotors - Dura International BR900764
Front Pads - Wagner Quick Stop ZD924
Rear Rotors - Dura International BR900770
Rear Pads - Wagner Quick Stop ZD1445
Does anyone have experience installing this pads and rotors?
Thanks in advance.
Hi Greg,I researched pretty heavily the R1s and wasn't convinced enough those would fit, so...
About six months ago, I did my 2010 + rotors and pads using the Dura rotors and Wagner quickstops and all fit perfectly. I can check to see specifically which Dura #s I ordered if you like, but I too got all mine from Amazon with no problems (except for occasional brake squeal - so make, sure to use copper grease/brake grease and/or brake quiet on your brake pad backing plates and "ears").
Also, if your parking brake is weak or the lever-travel is too long (as mine was), I recommend taking a few minutes to adjust your parking brake while working on your rear brakes.
From what I've experienced and researched, there's no significant difference or benefit for colder climates, meaning good brakes will work regardless. I've no complaints after six months as all are wearing normally and stopping is at least as good as the OE brakes that came with the car new. Only challenge I had was getting the rotor hold-screws out without stripping.Hi Greg,
How has your experience been with the pads and rotors after 6 months of use. Any complaints on quality?
I'm in Canada and i've heard that semi metallic pads are better than ceramic pads for cold weather - Any thoughts?
Thanks for all the info .. it's proving to be a big help
