i just had a few questions regarding brakes...

I just bought exel ennios and i want to put them on but im afraid that my brakes are wayyy to rusty to be seen. Im just wondering what brakes or brake parts i can get that dont rust or whatever else is possible. All ideas welcome. Thanks

Im in the same boat. The hubs of my rotors look horrible, kinda embarrasing. I think i might get new ones and paint the hubs black.

Just prep and paint the calipers and hub of the rotor (not the swept surface). Any high-temp paint should work if you prep the surface right.

Like above, just paint the calipers and hub, you can also get a pair of rust proof rotors from a aftermarket company, maybe something drilled or slotted also. Obviously the contact surface will still rust a bit but you hub, holes, sides and all the rest should always be silver if not real dirty.

Depending where you look you can get a set of rotors from 200-600 give or take
