adam's rotors inc. running 10 years strong! | WE are officially HERE!!!
A FULL DECADE OF AR AND WE’VE MADE IT TO THE BIG SHOW! adam's rotors inc. is now the official BRAKE FORUM SPONSOR of Swedespeed!!!
many of you may know us and are currently running our rotors, but if not, we just wanted to reach out and introduce ourselves.
WE CATER TO THE CAR ENTHUSIAST WHO NOT ONLY NEEDS NEW BRAKE ROTORS, BUT WANTS SOMETHING DIFFERENT BEHIND A NICE SET OF WHEELS.
be it looks or performance, adam's rotors is the only company to bring you over 17+ machine pattern variations (most of which are exclusive to AR), 3 zinc finish offerings, and 5 ceramic-silica hub coating options.
we started out small and remain that way...a tight knit, self-owned & operated company established in 2006.
the small outfit and one-on-one interaction creates only the best service w/quick response & even faster made-to-order set-ups. with top notch products, this lends hand to our success thus far.
working 24/7 throughout the day, any and all questions are answered within the hour to the best of our ability, if not instantly.
being an online company we do business direct via email, instant message, PM, and over the web in our ever growing threads...we're always here ready to reply!
we are a fully made-to-order, replacement disc brake, rotor manufacturer...we offer only factory fit, OE spec, plug n' play discs.
adam's rotors started out on Audizine.com and took over the VW/Audi market.
over the years thru word-of-mouth and hard work, the Volvo community really latched onto your business model and supported our concept.
our quality product & myriad of options pairs perfectly with the OEM brake components on Volvo cars, but keep in mind we also do set-ups for ANY make/models car/truck/van…check to our store!
because we do what no one else does. AR is a customizable product, having managed to turn a boring replacement product into something different. it's a have-it-your-way, made-to-order modification item ideal for any enthusiast. now, instead of just picking 1 of 1-3 drilled or slotted rotor styles from off-the-shelf inventory, we offer over 17+ patterns for your choice/taste, how YOU want them. after that pick a zinc for corrosion prevention...silver? gold? maybe black? thereafter you can even add one of our coated hub colors in a satin ceramic finish to finalize your set and truly give them polished, unique look. we now even offer upgraded metallurgy, to a stronger premium grade high carbon iron if you so wish. we at AR believe a rotor ISN'T just a plain ol' service part...rather a fun, custom, cool way to not only enhance the look of your car, but add performance, protection, and something different to your build, with a ton of bang for your buck!
oh yeh...and they actually perform!!!
track tested, endurance race team approved; check it out HERE.
we have a limited run of restock on the way in, to replenish our currently SOLD OUT coaster sets!
these were a huge hit over the holidays/new year. be sure to get your set while you can & support AR!
these are top quality custom generated, laser cut & etched, wood coasters; designed exactly to spec of 6 of our exclusive patterns. the lug holes & hub bores are cut thru, along with accurate slotting, dimpling, drilling, and AR's chamfered edges. they are sturdy, absorbent, 3/16" thick coasters, in 3.9" diameter Basswood. these are solid wood, not laminated, which can handle water/moisture making them great, usable drink holders. the set of 6 coasters come in a tin w/unique label design and NEW display plate. stack the set upright on the lid piece to showcase the coasters on your desk or coffee table.
How long does the black or gold zinc coating last? I have always loved the look, but if my understanding of braking principles is right, eventually it'll wear off as the disk is worn. Right? It can't permeate into the metal, or can it? Starting to shop around for new pads & rotors and I am intrigued for sure.
(I am so looking forward to low dust/dust free brakes again!)

"do the gold or black zinc rotors stay black forever?"
the colored zinc will only remain on the NON-pad contact areas for the life of the rotor. the face of the rotor will of course wear silver instantly upon the initial bedding process after install from friction, leaving a very subtle accent color (and more importantly corrosion protection) on the remainder of the rotor. (hub/hat, dimples, slots, vents, etc) this is the same for ANY zinc dipped, rust protected rotor, but with black/gold, has a very nice aesthetic touch behind a custom wheel/painted caliper.
another option is to opt for our G4000 upgrade that includes a superior hub AND vent coating that remains black too, giving it that great two-tone with the benefits of higher carbon content iron as well.
regarding dust, rotors have nothing to do with that...only pads and we have a killer low-dust option: www.adamsrotors.com/pads
