Front Brake Rotors

Hi All,

I need new rotors for my 97 2WD

Any suggestions ? Im trying to avoid the cheap Chinese junk that I have had horrible luck with (on other vehicles)

My rotors were fine until I had a caliper hang up the other night & it got REAL hot.

They are about .015 over min thickness. I did not drive it afterwards. Tore it all apart after everything cooled down.

They look OK, but I cant imagine they did not warp.

I have never had any luck with cheap rotors (they always warp) & everything I see is Chinese.

Thanks in advance

I've used Powerslots before with great luck. Last set lasted over 80k before vibration! The rotors with JUST the slots, not drilled. Not sure how the drilled ones will do.
I've got them from Brake Performance before at decent price.

Almost all rotors are now made by the Chicoms. We sell top of the line Brembo and Reactive slotted rotors which are made in China.
