I'd like to point out that these are, as labeled, extreme STREET brakes. Don't expect STREET brakes to be good on a track, if that's what you're looking for.

These ones are designed to heat up fast, and it's what makes them so good on the streets. Be real with yourself though, and know if you need a hardcore track setup, a good hybrid, or a dedicated street brake setup like this

I have the PowerStop Z17 ceramic pads for street use paired with some Durago electrophroetic coated rotors

That is absolutely correct. It's one of the best options of what's available by this brand for the 4G. At the moment Z26 is the only brake kit available with $30 rebate.

Yeah, that's marketing. That's standard on coated rotors. It's like saying your new model of tires has tread cut into the friction surface, or when manufacturers list "front and rear windshields" as a feature on their cars
Well they were pretty cheap for coated and work well lol, don’t rust either
And no brake dust from the PowerStop Z17 pads
I did bed them in properly though mind you

Rusting on the friction surface has nothing to do with coating, almost everything to do with environmental conditions. If they aren't rusting on the friction surface, then the coating isn't actively doing anything

That's not to mean I don't support or suggest coated rotors though. And even cheap rotors are fine as long as you don't overheat them. Street brakes are pretty easy to do. You just use a low temperature ceramic pad on basically any rotor

They rust on the friction surface only while sitting for a long time, but it comes off after first use of brakes, I like how it doesn’t rust anywhere else though like cheap rotors do
