Brake Rotors

Can you tell if they need to be turned by just looking at them really?
My brakes are pulsating, I am replacing the pads, but wondering if I should get my rotors turned while i'm at it. I don't feel like buying new ones. Which reminds me...are slotted or drilled rotors really worth it?

lol thats funny.... and no you cant tell by just looking at them..

you should always have them turned when your installing new pads...

as far as slotted or drilled i would only go slotted... drilled rottors cause weak points and when they heat up will crack... slotted wont..

i always replace rotors if you turn them with todays brake pressure there more likely to warp again new rotors are 60 to 75 $
