Brakes and rotors

Need to replace front pads and (rotors? do you need to replace rotors every time you need new pads?). Does anyone have a suggestion for non-OEM pads and rotors for a 15 SQ4?

Thanks in advance.

13650 for front and 10530 for rear.
I did mine in less then 20 mins. Check out you tube brembo brakes for a review on how to change.

There's no need to replace rotors unless they are seriously lipped or pitted. All rotors have a serviceable thickness in the tech specifications. If someone has a workshop manual in PDF then maybe they can have a look? I know a lot of top end manufacturers are telling owners to replaced their rotors at same time but that's rubbish. It's easy for them to tell you this as it's easy money for them and also they have zero comebacks because everything is new. They may claim that putting new pads on used discs/rotors may start to squeal but I'd chance that route first to avoid unnecessary costs. Also there are measure you can take if this happens.

I seem to have different rear calipers on mine that I've seen on other Ghibli's. Mine are quite big, not as big as front but still a 4 pot and I think they may be Brembo (I need to confirm this).
As for disc, they are made in Germany and have a note on the inner part of the disc. I think it says 'MIN TH 1.18" = 30mm' So measure your old discs and this will confirm if you need new discs or not, see picture below

It would be nice to start a cross reference part section seeing as these cars are getting to the end of their warranty period?
Maserati prices are like telephone numbers!

To add to the above, I went out to my car yesterday and quickly measure the thickness of my discs on the outer edge where the lip would be. mine is measuring 33mm. So as for wear, there's 3mm or 1.5mm either side assuming you brake calipers/ pads allow even wear. That's quite a lot in my opinion.

Hello,

I am curious about the StopTech 309.10530 pads and how they are I am currently looking for non-OEM rear pads and these were very affordable compared to the dealership. How are they?

I have about 3000 miles on them. Less brake dust and grips better.
I'm happy and would recommend them.

Thank you. Just wanted to get someone's updated experience on them before I bought them.
