Never heard of them. They are probably low end whitebox rotors.

Stick with brand name premium-line rotors.

With rotors, you really get what you pay for.

Sounds like generic no-name garbage. At least get name brand garbage like Dorman or A1Auto.

Thanks for the replies. I definitely needed a second opinion because the price looked good.

You'll be surprised that some quality rotors and pads don't cost more than these cheap no name parts. Power Stop and EBC (manufactured in UK and US) have decent and sometimes cheaper prices than no name on Amazon.ca. EBC Brakes sells their rotors by the pair (not each) for my car around $100'ish and they are one of the best. Centric Premium rotors go for $70 regularly.

Check out Rockauto.com for different part numbers and look them up on the net or buy from them using 5% discount codes.

Thanks for the tip! Trying to get familiar with the car part brands.

I am going to try them anyway. Guess I will know better if they are any good in a couple years.
Interesting enough I have never heard of them either but this is what yelp said about them (below). I would have thought someone would know about them if this is true.

Business Owner
In 1994, the business changes its name and becomes Transit Warehouse Inc. Mr. Guay hands over the reins to his son Stéphane, and the business then knows experienced tremendous growth. The annual sales increased by 30%, even recently during the global economic crisis. The warehouse is expanded twice, first in 1996 and then in 1998. The following year, a second building of 10,000 square-foot storage opens, but it shortly becomes too small. Even the 35,000 square feet used by Transit from July 2000 to June 2008 would eventually be too small!"

Farmer75 or User 258618 ... any thoughts on these rotors? I'm considering them for a Benz.

I recommend not using them on anything you rely on for daily transport. Put a set of TW rotors and pads on my Honda and 4 months later had to pull them as the vibrations when braking were insane, and the rotors are unevenly scored and rusty.
