    Need 180mm rotors , XT's ?

    I am in the market for a set of 180mm rotors. I came across a good deal on Shimano XT's - any comments on these rotors ? I have a Haye's Mag brakeset and was originally going to go w/ V7 rotors but my current V8's are quite noisy just banging thru rocks (make pinging sounds) Thanks

    I don't like mine. It's paired with XT m755 4pots. It screeches when braking. I guess it has something with the 755's metallic pads. I think if I went with organic pads, it would be silent but with less stopping power.

    Make sure the brake track is wide enough. Shimano have the narrowest brake track so their calipers are fine w/ other rotors but you may end up biting on the rotor spoke w/ your hayes.
