The V50 looks fantastic and drives like very few other vehicles can drive so you want to make sure that yours is performing at its best. That means installing performance upgrades and you’re in the right place because we have all the upgrades you need to have your V50 become a monster or to just improve some areas that are lacking. No matter which way you intend to go you need the right braking set up so we have the Volvo V50 brakes, pads and rotors you need to achieve that.
Even though your standard braking system works well it will never work as well as an aftermarket system because it’s built to a budget so there are certain compromises. We have a wide range of components by different manufacturers using different technologies so that you can easily find something to freshen up older brakes or something to completely transform your standard system so that your vehicle stops like a race car. Because we have all the biggest names in the industry like Brembo, EBC and Hawk you know you’re going to get the quality that only comes from knowledge, experience and the most proven technologies.
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.

"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! "
