I'm thinking about changing my rotors and pads later this year. My car has the STP option which includes "better brakes" than a regular R/T. Does anybody know what that means exactly? I am having a heck of a time finding any literature about it online.

None of the websites I have looked at which sell replacement rotors and pads list the STP as an option when selecting my vehicle make and model. However, I don't want to accidentally by purchase the wrong parts.

Would a Mod mind changing my thread title from Back to Pack, please? Thank you.

Have the STP on my RT and can tell you that those "better brakes" are nothing special, they lasted a whole 22k miles. The gripping power of the R1 Concepts Premier Rotors and Hawk pads is simply amazing. So many folks recommended them here and they were right.

I have heard good things about them too.

Brand aside, are the parts the same size as the stock R/T? Same dimensions I mean? If I order rotors and pads for a standard R/T, they will fit on with no issues?

No issues, the calipers are the same size across the board, until you get to the SRT.

Hindsight being 20/20, I would have spent the extra dollars and got the Baer kit instead.

Thanks for the info!

Which Baer kit? Do you have a link?

My 2011 RTC that was the first MOD I did, R1 Concepts pads and rotors all around and when I traded in the car they were still great. I get all my brakes from R1 since 2007 on my 2003 Yukon XL. Just call them up and have your VIN and they will take care of you.

The brake linings (pads) are 'performance' pads with STP. Rotors and calipers are the same as a non STP R/T.

Did a track day at NCM 2 weeks ago using the 4 piston Brembos and drilled rotors from Power Stop with their X23 or X24 pads with Castrol SRF in the reservoir and never had any brake issues. I did hit 130 down the front stretch before clamping them down and making the 1 and 1A turns.
