The Hawk Pads and Sport Rotors are awesome! The installation was quick and easy, and my 'warped rotor' symptoms immediately went away. No more wobbles when braking... for a couple days. Now the symptoms are already coming back. I can feel the brake pulsations and the steering wheel beginning to shake again. It's not as bad as it was, but I'm guessing it'll just get worse. I need to find out if these Sport rotors can be turned. If so, then I need to find a shop that can turn them while they are on the vehicle. I didn't check the run-out of the hubs prior to installation, as I don't have the tools or know anyone who does. I called the local Midas and Meineke shops and they don't have the tools to turn rotors on the vehicle either. Bottom line: Pads and Rotors are great, just not magical.
