    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Depends? Are you running into issues now with braking performance?

    OP, you don't say what vehicle, you don't say what issues you had with the factory parts, and you don't say if performance or cost is your primary decision factor. Basically, you haven't given anyone enough information to even start helping you. I rate your post 1/10 and urge you to do better.

    Thanks. Keep in mind, for daily driver street use, drilled and slotted aren't going to make much difference in feel or stopping distance. That's going to be controlled by the pad type/compound.

    This is what they say the pads are made from Z23 Carbon-Fiber Ceramic formula for superior braking power

    You can have all the best brakes in the world, but if you are driving on OEM all season tires, the max grip from the brakes will mean nothing. Its an Impala, not a C63 AMG.

    Also, its a tradeoff with regards to brake performance at cold (street) temps/brake dust/brake pad wear or disc

    EDIT - yes, American cars (and trucks) seem to come with small swept areas on the discs. Upgrading to slightly bigger discs would help in long term - if its possible (not all cars have clearance).

    Can the current brakes lock up the tires?

    If so better brakes won’t make you stop faster. They might be smoother, feel better, give you more control, maybe handle heat better on the track. But not stop faster.

    Considering your other thread, if you want to stop faster spend the money on better tires rather than brakes...

    Should likely be slightly better as long as you don't buy the cheapest pads.
    I've noticed an awkward 0.1-0.25 seconds of poor bite during heavy rain since switching to drilled & slotted.
