Corvette C6 Brakes
2005-2013 Corvette Performance Parts: Brake Pads, Rotors and Brake Upgrade Kits
If you have a Corvette C6 made from 2005-2013, chances are you've got enough miles on it to have gone through a couple sets of Corvette brake pads and rotors. If not, you're not driving your Vette like it was meant to be driven! Regardless, the next time you need Corvette brakes, take advantage of the opportunity: Upgrade to a set of premium brake rotors and pads.
What's the difference? It depends: Premium brake rotors like those from StopTech and Centric usually last longer and have improved corrosion resistance vs stock OE Corvette brake rotors. A step up from premium generally nets you high-performance features like slots or cross-drilling. Slotted brake rotors 'wipe' away dust and gasses more effectively for improved stopping power. Cross-drilled brake rotors do that too, with the added benefit of increased cooling.
Better quality Corvette brake pads reduce stopping distances and perform better under severe stress. Depending on how you drive your C6, though, you may not need (or want) a top-line racing brake pad. Good street brake pads deliver improved stopping power without extra dust or noise. More aggressive pads may be needed to prevent brake fade when autocrossing or racing your Corvette, but they might produce unwanted squeaking and dusting. Our Corvette brake pad and rotor descriptions will help you find the right brakes for your C6 Corvette, and with Vette Lab you know you'll always get great pricing and fast shipping.
