Steel discs and pads that fit Carbon Ceramic callipers

Post by CyberChr1s » Mon Mar 11, 2019 12:02 pm

Hey all, I was wondering if anyone makes a standard steel pad/disc that fit the carbon ceramic calliper. I assume not given the amount of them for sale, but figured it was worth asking!

Thanks!

Am interested myself, I did ask some time ago about converting to steel discs but the Jag dealer I spoke to said it can’t be done, find it difficult to believe.

Another option worth looking into is to find out what other makes have the same brembo callipers and find what price pads are. Never know maybe even the discs themselves.

Got loads of life on mine so have put it in the “to do list”

Yeah, I think the issue is the difference in the thickness of the discs. Given it's a Brembo I am fairly surprised that nobody is making a steel replacement for it. BMW do this, they have one calliper for all! If you ever figure this out, please please please let me know :D

I have been researching this.

There seems 2 options either replace the CC discs and pads with non JLR CC units or replace the discs and pads with non CC
