I noticed the price for slotted/cross drilled rotors aren't that much more than standard rotors. I'm going to upgrade my pads, front and back, for my future towing needs and thoight I might as well upgrade the rotors too.

Does anyone have the slotted/cross drilled rotors, and what are your impression of them? Ive got a trailet brake controller, so that might just be enough.

These are going on stock 16" wheels.

I did my front rotors and pads a while ago with ebc dimpled/slotted sport rotors and greenstuff pads. I dont know about the difference in stopping between solid and slotted/drilled because i changed pads and rotors at the same time but stopping power increased by like 20-30% id say. Im going to change to the yellowstuff pads later which are a bit more aggressive. Drilled rotors can sometimes develop stress cracks under really heavy repeated braking but thats usually when people track their cars and trucks.

if you're willing to spend the extra money I believe they are worth it. I had slotted rotors on my Dakota awhile back and they were a vast improvement. Plus there is clearly a reason why all race cars/performance trucks have them...

I'm a fan of slotted rotors, and will be putting them on my truck when the brakes need serviced. I've put them on my wife's RDX, and they help stop that little 2-ton pig like it's a Civic coupe, lol.

If you can afford them do it, the vents and holes disperse gas and keep the heat down. Better stopping power.

i am running stoptech Drilled and Slotted rotors with Ceramic pads (from autozone) and i love them. i no longer experience brakefade (well until i start boiling my brake fluid). they also stop alot better than stock brakes i bet i cut my braking distance in half (after about 30 minutes of driving hard) over the stock pads and rotors. not to mention they look better.

I tow a lot and went with powerstop rotors and pads on the front and there drum pads for the rear, 25% or so better stopping power, I also use the trailer brake system. allot of people on here have went with them and I have heard nothing negative
