Would you trust these brakes?

These brakes kinda look like the Braking STX rotors. Would you trust them?

Absolutely not! No way would I put that crap on my bike unless it was only used to drive one mile down to the pub and back. This is just another Chinese knock off with absolutely zero proof quality control. I am willing to bet that in any race application or even spirited sport bike ride they would warp and be worthless. Don't even think about eating them they are 50% lead

Why wouldnt' you use them....it's just front brakes...all the cool kids take a rotor off anyway so you can see your pimp wheels.

Wonder what Mom and Pop rotor shop in China stamped these out? Looking at this guys Ebay profile, only in business for about 1.5 years, dealing in knock off motorcycle parts. There look good, but skimp on quality. 14 day return policy?! It would probably take three weeks to get back to Hong Kong. Suzuki guy paid $255 for his set, LOL.
