I wanted to get the corksport bbk but the price is expensive plus it's only the front. Anyone know a where to get a good full set of slotted roots for the 2015 Mazda 3 sgt?

Stoptech do a slotted rotor for the 2014, cannot see why they would not fit the 2015.

StopTech Slotted Street Brake Kit - Axle Pack - FREE SHIPPING!
Can't seem to find the ones for 2015 Mazda 3 on there :(


I ordered a set from R1 Concepts.... Check their website or you can save some cash using their Ebay store.
2014-2014 Mazda 3 Full Kit Black Slotted Brake Disc Rotors & Ceramic Brake Pads
I contacted them about the Eline series last week and was told the fronts of the Japanese model and the Mexican models were different. Only the back ones will fit. Then I started reading the negative reviews about of these "cheap made in China" rotors that warped or just didn't fit.

Yep.


So 2015 is different from 2014 ?
Nope.

Stoptech do drilled rotors, slotted rotors and slotted and drilled. Drilled rotors tend to get cracking along the holes. And have less surface area which means less stopping power. But they do look cool

Bumping this thread back in case anyone has found a decent set of both front and rear slotted and drilled rotors. The stop tech ones I can only find the fronts but cannot find the rears. Looking for both front and rear for 2015 Mazda 3 2.5L made in Japan thank you.

I got part #'s for front and rear stop tech slotted rotors, quoted for my 2017 2.5L GT. Should also apply to the 2014/15/16(18?). If you go on stoptechs website it should be there. Might take a bit of digging. Also, I was told 2-12 weeks before they would arrive as the part #'s were brand new, that was 2 months ago, possibly better wait times now. Sometime soon here I will probably pull the trigger on them.

So based on some research on CarID.com, here is what I found out - Stoptech does not make rear brake pads for the 2014 Mazda 3 SGT Japan edition :(

CarID carries the slotted and drilled front and rear rotors and front brake pads :

Front pad and rotor kit from stoptech:
carid.com/2014-mazda-3-brakes/stoptech-drilled-slotted-street-brake-kit-563150158.html

Read Rotors from stoptech:
carid.com/2014-mazda-3-brakes/stoptech-drilled-slotted-sport-rotors-59061085.html

Rear pads from Z23 since stoptech doesnt make them:

I only get slotted. I've had nothing but problems using drilled rotors in the past. They warp easier, I have seen some crack a little, and they eat the pads so quick. Slotted eats the pads faster than normal too but not as bad.
