Mintex Discs & Pads

Recommended Posts

Well, I've taken the plunge and finally decided to replace my standard discs and brakes with the Mintex ones having heard about the reduction in brake dust.

As my alloys are an embarassment where corrosion and pitting are concerned, I'll now have an incentive to either get them refurbed or maybe even take the plunge and get some 18"s next month!

I'll post photos when I do though. :D

Ah bugger. It seems as though the distributor I've gone to can't get any front pads or discs from Mintex.

I then rang another distributor and even though they're still on Mintex's website, they say they've stopped selling Mintex stuff as they were unreliable in terms of keeping up with stock orders.

The first distributor said I'd probably have to wait a month or so. :crybaby:

Would it be wise to mix front and rear discs and brakes? I might just cancel the order and go for EBCs instead.

I would not recommend EBC's personally having tried them......

Cheers for the info - what didn't you like about them?

Anybody know of a reliable source where I can get the front discs and pads then? Any help would be most appreciated as I think I'm getting to the screech pins and need to change my pads asap! :crybaby:

I wouldn't use EBC, keep trying to find a set off Mintex pads they are very good, good luck.

EBC - warp easily, serios brake fade, waste of bloomin money....

Black diamonds are supposed to be good (Maz has them)

Mintex (what I have now) - seem better than standard...
