the hot spots is from warping... the weight of our vehicles creates that on rotors... Powerslot offers Cryo frozen rotors that are way stronger than stockers or even just regular Powerslot rotors... a lil more expensive but def worth it

I replaced my factory rotors twice and they kept warping until I went with drilled and slotted rotors. They were about $300 for a set of 4, shipping and all from eBay and they have performed great for over two years now and several 100-0 hard stops. They are so good that I ordered a set for the wife’s Jeep.

I've had Powerslot Cryos on my offroad truck for about 3 yrs now, they're the same ones, never had a single problem with them. They are incredibly dense, so they really don't wear down that much. I got them from AJ-USA.com , theyare a bit pricey, around $210-$230 for a pair. But they are worth it, the cryos paired with hawk HD pads will stop your truck quick, even when towing a heavy load.
