new brake rotors, whats good?

I need new brake rotors and i want to know what you guys prefer for a new set. I don't want factory ones cause they tend to warp. I want slotted rotors. Anyone on here sell them and how much?

Just curious? I just replaced my front pads with ones from AutoZone - lifetime replacement. Didn't need rotors but read on here where slotted ones are meant for racing. The more surface area in contact with pads the sooner you can stop these heavy trucks. Is this right or do slotted rotors do something I am not aware of?

I have heard that the slotted ones help the gases escape faster and they do have better cooling especially if you get the drilled ones too. I have been looking and they sell all sorts of brands just for the S.D. Power slot seems to be a popular brand.

What about just drilling stock rotors on your drill press?

Might work. Never thought of that. The only thing is that i still don't think the factory ones are as good of quality as an aftermarket. I have been reading a few other forums now on these powerslot rotors and everyone loves them. Check out Raul's link and read about some of the new stuff they do to them. Like cryo freezing for better warp resistance.

big no no with the weight of our truck.... they will heat up more than lets say a ricers truck and will crack where you drill them....

reason most of the aftermarket rotors/ brake upgrades are slotted not drilled...
