GTS Brembo sport brakes

Anyone know if Brembo makes brake rotors for the celica that fit the stock rims/settings? Where is the cheapest place to get them? thanks.

You can get them on eBay for under $200, and that's for both the front and the back.

And yes, they are Brembo rotors.

They don't have any for the 2000+ celica, only the older gen. celica.

The reason why Im getting the stock Brembos is because I don't have any money to get a big brake kit, I just want to replace my stock ones which are rusty with some quality rotors for the moment.

Also, do you guys know if the stock rotors on the celica are made by Brembo? Because a lot of auto manufacturers use Brembo for OEM brakes. If so, I would rather just get them at the dealership so I don't have to deal w/shipping and handling charges, thanks.

Nope stock brakes aren't made by Brembo. I'd assume that if they were there would probably be a "Brembo" logo on it, and the discs would at least be slotted.

The '00 GT has smaller rotors. '01 and up should be the same size as the GTS though.

Don't buy the cheapo brembo drilled rotors, they are prone to cracking.

Just go with slots if you want the looks, or stick with OEM style for the best in daily Performance. wave
