Stock or slotted. Cross drilled rotors are prone to fractures.

Re: better rotors

Many use power slots and rave about them. I ran the cryo power slots for about 9 a year and they "warped" too. I ended up using NAPA's ultra premium and they seem to be better that the power slots so far.

Re: better rotors

Call these guys, R1 Concepts out of La Habra, Ca. they also are on Ebay, but you can get the ebay price by calling them, I picked mine up from there store when I was in SoCal. I got there drilled and slotted rotors, along with their recommended pads, and I LOVE my brakes.
I pull a 44' enclosed gooseneck race car trailer and when my factory rotors of 140K miles went metal to metal, I opted for a major overhaul, new calipers front and rear due to the rubber dust boots on the pistons were non-exsistant due to the extreme heat the brakes produced while coming down the mtns out of dever heading to Utah or the 17 frwy from Flagstaff to Phoenix, I run these roads monthly and heavy..
When I replaced the origanal pads and rotors with the R1 Concepts, I also replaced the calipers on all four wheels and upgraded to braided stainless steel brake lines and flushed entire brake system out with new fluid. and I now have the best brakes I have ever had.. Stiff pedal, quick stopping power...Call thee guys, their great guys and parts were instock.. And no-one is harder on brakes then me.

Re: better rotors

And just so you know, my rotors also have the diamond tip slots, and the slots never get packed up with brake pad dust (material) as some have said happens. And the drill holes are champferd also.

Re: better rotors

Id watch out for the cross drilled ones. They look cool but they crack with age on most of them. If you go cross drilled make sure its a large brand name or good warranty.

Re: better rotors

Slots and holes are no benefit until the brake temp gets to about 800 degrees. Most SD brakes never get over 500.

If only those who knew what they were talking about replied, this thread would still be on page one.
