I'm assuming that you're getting the cryo-treated rotors from HMS. I now have about 300 miles on the new setup and am very happy. As I mentioned in another thread, the red pads don't seem as grabby at low temps as the greens and they definitely dust more. I may give HMS a call this week before I send the Green pads back to them and see what they think about reinstalling them now that I have the cryo rotors. Please post your results once you get your brakes installed.

I put EBC green pads on about 2,000 miles ago. I did not change the rotors when I installed the new pads. About two weeks ago I started getting a shimmy when stopping. Warped rotors!

I called HMS today and they mentioned that some owners are having problems with the green pads causing warped rotors. HMS said that they would replace the green pads with red pads under warranty. Now that is service!!! Hats off to HMS!!!

So, new rotors and EBC red pads are on the way . Hope the new setup works.
