from what ive heard you want to stay away from the cross drilled rotors because they have a tendancy to crack or spider and then you have a toast rotor. your best bet from ebay would be a slotted rotor setup at least thats what ive found to be better and thats what im personally looking for

dimple/slotted if you want the looks of cross-drilled/slotted but without the problems that you might face.

i was thinking about it once but i think its actually the most useless one out of all the choices that you have.

with a dimpled rotor... you dont gain the performance benefits that a cross-drilled rotor may have. (for the x-drilled haters save the arguement for later this is hypothetically speaking) and you lose surface area...

so basically you gain nothing.... lose surface area.... and all for looks.

with something crucial as brakes.... definitely function over form first and foremost.

What about just slotted? Anyone have problems with those?

Slotted rotors increase pad wear as they shave off a very small amount of the pad material everytime you apply the brakes. For best performance, I would recommend good quality blanks and premium ceramic pads. BTW Wagner rotors ($75 ea) are also sold under Abeco/Stopmaster brand ($20ea). Most rotors sold at auto part stores come from the same source, with a few exceptions (Brembo for example).

i have cross drilled and slotted from ebay for like over a year now, and no one drives harder than me.. Get them with ceramic break pads.

ceramic pads might run u a bit high on price.

if you just a daily driver, keep the rotors and pads your car comes with. thats just my opinion

Yeah but I'm tired of the rusted look. I'm getting new rims soon and want that zinc plating.
