Volvo C30 Performance Brakes

    About Volvo C30 Performance Brakes, Pads & Rotors


    You have a C30 because it’s comfortable and fun to drive which means that you need it to be performing at its best every time you drive it. The easiest way to achieve this is to install the right performance upgrades and we have everything you need to achieve your goal whether that means completely overhauling your vehicle or just improving some aspects that are lacking. When you look at upgrading your vehicle you can’t look past your brakes so our range of Volvo C30 brakes, brake kits, pads and rotors is an important range to consider!

    While your standard brakes work well they’re designed to a budget so aftermarket brakes can work better and save you money because they’re cheaper to maintain. We have a wide range of different components to suit everyone including people who are looking for slight upgrades over standard brakes or those who are looking for cross-drilled rotors for the superior heat displacement on the track. You don’t want to compromise on quality so we have some of the biggest brands like Brembo, EBC and Hawk which means that you’re getting their years of experience and knowledge!

    Why do we appreciate our vehicles? Well, it's all about speed and performance. The bad thing is that you do have to tame the engine and stop, at least when you see the red light or stop sign. Quite often, you have to stop abruptly and that's when you find safety to be important either. Our job is to make sure your vehicle is properly equipped to deliver the safety level you need. Which is why, we've gathered a full line of brakes and brake components. Each product ensures shorter stopping distance, lower brake temperatures and higher resistance to fading. Just go through 3 brake and brake components reviews with an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars, and get a product that meets all your requirements.

    Disc brake rotors (aka 'rotors') are the actual discs that brake pads clamp onto, creating friction that slows a vehicle. Disc brake rotors bolt on over the axle hub and contain holes that allow wheel mounting bolts to pass through and rotate with the wheels. Since there are many rotor styles and designs specially created for every budget and need, we’ve listed the advantages of each disc brake rotor so that you can make the right choice and get the best for your vehicle. All rotors, except ceramic brake rotors and two-piece rotors with aluminum centers, are typically one piece and crafted from iron for maximum heat absorption.
    Squealing noise upon brake application is actually caused by a high-frequency vibration of metal rotors, drums, or brake pad backing plates. Excess corrosion that forms over time on non-contact, outer perimeter areas of rotors and drums is a prime cause because rust is looser and less dense in nature – therefore, more likely to create resonation.

    "Price was a little high for me but bought them just the same. I have a 2000 Volvo S40 and pads from the dealership were just as pricey. As far as I can tell they have eliminated 80% of the dust that would show up on my wheels. Saves a lot of time in cleaning. They are extremely easy to install but Volvo has an extremely simple brake system anyhow. Now for quiet....Very quiet pads. No need to buy on brake quiet compounds. Install and ride. That's what I like. Highly recommend if you want quiet pads that do not produce a lot of dust."

    "The aggressive slots on these rotors not only look good, but they certainly add some extra bite when needed. I purchased these to enhance the braking capabilities of my 03 Volvo XC when towing our pop-up camper. The nice thing about these rotors (which I paired up with, low dust Hawk Ceramic Pads) is that under regular driving conditions, these brakes feel just like OEM; but hit the brakes hard and you can certainly feel the extra grip. I'd say (unscientifically) that, at least when new, these rotors feel like they added upwards of 35+% more stopping power under heavy braking. Again, I am writing this review with only about 100 miles on them, so they are essentially still brand new; only time will tell whether or not these maintain their performance. "

    "I'm used to doing my own maintenance on my own vehicle, but of the hardest things to do outside your engine by far would be the brakes and rotors. CARiD.com has changed that for good by creating a kit that fits the exact specifications of your own vehicle and provides step-by-step instructions on how to properly install them. It's great! "
