Founded in South Carolina, Chrome Brakes® is a privately owned manufacturer and distributor of brake components for a wide range of cars and trucks throughout the world. Chrome Brakes® keeps their philosophy and product line simple - a quality product should have more of what makes it worth having, and less of what adds excessive cost. They offer a unique, innovative line of color-coated brake rotors that give your vehicle spice on the street and an extra edge at car shows that other guys haven’t even thought of. But Chrome Brakes® products are not all about beauty - they are about reliable, value-packed brake performance that’s superior to OEM equipment. As our customers say in their reviews, Chrome Brakes® components first got their attention because of colorful styling, but their no-compromise street performance made them lifetime customers.
Chrome Brakes® offers a lineup of drilled and slotted brake rotors, available in a wide range of colors. To start with, the iron used to form the rotors is cast with a high graphite content that resists heat buildup, and rotor centers are ventilated to allow cooling air to flow through. Pad contact surfaces are slotted and drilled - providing the most effective venting of water, brake dust, and gasses possible. In addition, the exterior color on rotor surfaces isn’t just designed for looks - it actually adds characteristics that enhance overall stopping ability, heat transference, and longevity. The pyrolytic chromium carbide coating bonds to the metal of the rotors, providing a level of corrosion resistance that paint and zinc cannot match. The color coating also strengthens metal surfaces of the rotors, making cracks between drilled holes something the other guy has to deal with - not you. Temperature of brake components and fluid is kept lower under all conditions, eliminating the fade, rotor warp, and corrosion that reduce stopping performance.

Chrome Brakes® offers replacement brake pads that give you better stopping ability, longer pad life, and reduced levels of dust buildup on your wheels. A unique, blended metallic-ceramic compound ensures the pads resist squealing and heat buildup, and the metallic makeup delivers a progressive level of bite as your driving gets harder and more aggressive. Ceramix pads cause less abrasive wear on rotors and it’s typical to see new rotors lasting through two complete sets of these pads instead of just one. Like Chrome Brakes® rotors, brake pads are sized to match OEM dimensions to ensure proper fit, even wear, and an absence of rattles and squeals.
Unlike many organizations that sell automotive parts and accessories, CARiD’s standards are as high as yours are. That’s why we only use suppliers with a proven history of customer satisfaction and quality control such as Chrome Brakes®. Our employees have tested their brake products on their own vehicles and after doing so, you can rest assured they will provide equal benefits to you on your car or truck. We have made every effort to provide as much information as possible on the range of Chrome Brakes® products on our site, and we will make every effort to help answer any specific questions you have with specialists that are available seven days a week.
I have driven about 1,000 miles so far, and these rotors are great. I installed new EBC RedStuff brake pads with these, and without a doubt, they are the best brakes I've used.
Great looking rotors. It will be really nice if the slotted and drilled surface stay gold. But they still have an aggressive, sporty look, and they stop on a dime with the PowerStop Z16 Evolution Ceramic Front Brake Pads. No noise at all when braking and easy to install.
I bought these rotors for my 2008 HHR. Quality is many times better than stock. Not to mention the color (red) really pops through the rims. Looks great and stops on a dime. Can't beat that.
Easy to install. I purchased the front and rear brake pads of this type and was extremely pleased with the quality of the pads. Would definitely purchase again.
Keep in mind these are painted chrome brakes, so when you do apply them to your car and use them, obviously, the brake pads will remove the paint, but it would just give it even more intense look with a pattern of blue than your original Metallica.
The original rotors on my Flex went bad early in its life, and these match my paint so cool. Only issue I have is that the braking surface is painted, and it's kind of a pain to remove just the paint on the braking surface and not mess it up everywhere else. Other than that I'm happy with the product.
I didn't hear about Chrome Brakes. It's a new brand but it seems they offer nice products. The color choice is stunning. I'm now a proud owner of gold rotors. Quality is much better than OEM. And now I know where I can buy great products for my car at a much more affordable price vs other companies. Installation was easy and fast too.
I have installed ceramic brake pads front and rear. Very quiet, no vibrations when you need to stop hard! I've found the lowest prices for pads at CARiD. The shipping was fast and I received pads in a few days. Very easy installation and good results on the road. Nice!
I'm very impressed with the stopping power. The price is low but the quality is high! There is a huge difference over stock. Very well made rotors. Interesting colors make it a unique upgrade for my car. Easy installation and good support from CARiD. I would highly recommend these rotors as well as this store.
I have black rotors by Chrome Brakes. They look great, they do turn silver after use (without any issues though). They're definitely better than my factory rotors. I'll never go back to stock. Great service from CARiD and fast shipping without any problems. I'm very happy with the product.
