Drilled/slotted rotors

I've seen them forsale on xdp and I plan to upgrade to 20" wheels and larger tires. I've been a big fan of slotted rotors on various other high performance cars I've had just curious to see if anyone's using them.

I have slotted rotors on the rear brakes of my truck. The guy at the shop slots them himself and guaranteed them for life. I guess he is pretty confident in them.

i have been told not to use drilled as they tend to crack under extreme use

Ive heard both sides. So I guess it just depends on quality.

I have Hawk slotted rotors and Hawk pads on all 4 corners. I drive like a grandma but they seem to work just fine for me. I really did not need to change anything, my originals looked damn good at 12 yrs and 107,000 miles, i'm telling you, i drive like a grandma lol. I just wanted to change them out so i went all out.

Slotted for the Fronts.
A few of my friends are service techs, and they highly recommend the CRYO/Slotted rotors over ones that are drilled - as they have seen them have issues when getting heavily used.

I have EBC drilled and slotted rotors all the way around. Also have their performance GreenStuff pads all the way around. I pull a 12k boat weekly and for 1000 miles once a month. Never had a problem. Have about 50k on the rotors and they still look new. I just replaced the front ones after a caliper failure.

The only thing I highly recommend, regardless of your decision is to have them turned on the vehicle, on a ProCut Lathe to make sure they are 100% absolutely true on the truck. It cost me 50 bucks for all 4 to be turned at a local Firestone

Good luck

We sell Powerslots and Hawks...Personally I wouldn't use drilled rotors no need for them if you have the slots.

PM if I can get you prices.

I just put a set of drilled/slotted rotor on my truck two weeks ago. Got them on ebay. I've had good luck with them on my other vehicles.
