Drilled and slotted brake rotors

Anyone have any experience with these? My brother in law is considering making the swap if they will help with shorter braking distances and less fade. What is a fair price for a pair for the front?

I'm assuming you're talking about the 19.5 brakes after you upsize to 20+" rims?


I've got powerslots - they're slotted and Cyro'd... I've heard that if you get drilled AND slotted rotors that it can potentially break because it weakens the rotor and these aren't ricers... they're 7,000lb+ trucks!

I have slotted rotors that are Cyro'd. I got them from Mark @ DPPI. I also got the HAWK pads. The truck stops at least 20 feet shorter then it did before and it solid when towing. I got them for the front and I got the "upgraded" ones from autozone - it works QUITE well and are ALOT better then my stock "wobbly" decel's that I experienced from warped rotors!

I don't even know if slotted AND drilled rotors are available for our trucks. I have seen other posts on another site (cummins related) where they were talkinga bout the holes with the slotting deteriorating the strength of the rotor on such a heavy truck.

Drilled rotors are only good for racing, you run them a few times and throw them away. I've seen drilled rotors on cars crack when they get hot. Slotted rotors are ok.

Drilled rotors tend to crack when heated up. I would stay with slotted rotors myself.

Although if you want drill and slotted you can get them but your gonna pay big money for them.

I have a set off of an '04 4wd with very low miles on them if anyone wants to buy them. They are raybestos powerslots. I had them on an '04 gasser and traded for an '05 PSD and I pulled them off hoping they would fit the '05 and they don't. They worked great and were well worth the money!
