    They sell out quick . I would say call prior to ordering . I think the rotors also fit an optima/sonata not sure if sx or ex . But check for sure

    If you're wanting to upgrade, then so be it.

    Otherwise that's a load of crap. I sit in highway traffic everyday too. Even after I drive spiritedly I can barely smell my brakes. You would think you'd instantly smell burning brakes after driving if that was your problem.

    So, I actually was able to stop the pull (so far)
    All I did was bend the heat/dust shield on the rear calipers back and away from the disk to let air flow in to cool them off, and it worked!

    I am still hesitant to say the brakes were fading. When it is happening you would notice really distinct smell. Besides, highway driving, even in high traffic, even at high temperature should not really cause pulling and brake fading (unless you do 6 quick 60-5 MPH stops one by one).

    When I did brakes on Rondo (it is heavier than Forte) I did the whole process of bedding them in. Even after quick 10 stops on a hot summer day from 60 to 5 MPH I did not feel any fading or pulling. Sure, new brakes, but still. No noticeable fading. Especially REAR brakes!!


    Still confusing problem...
    Anyway, I am glad you solved it.
