Will "upgraded" rotors last longer than OEM/NAPA rotors?

Postby 07miata » Sun Sep 19, 2010 11:21 am

Hi all,
My pads (Hawk Blues) eat through my rotors fairly quickly. I've been resurfacing them once then tossing them, but I'm wondering if the "upgraded" rotors would last any longer? Are they made of tougher material that will make a noticeable difference in resisting the grinding the pads do to them or is tossing rotors just the name of the game when doing more and more track days?
Thanks for any opinions!

Yes, higher density iron product would last longer. The real trick ticket was the CGI rotors we sold (Compacted Graphite Iron), but they are not available currently in the MX5 fitment to my knowledge.

Thanks Brian! Any differences in quality between these two options:

I realize one is just the fronts and the other is a full set.

Can the slotted rotors be resurfaced?
