new brake rotors
Hey gang, I am in the market for some new brake rotors. Is there any particular reason I shouldnt go with cross drilled and slotted??
You can go to brake performance.com and get an idea of the range of rotors they sell.
The also carry premium slotted and dimpled rotors.
You all give me your opinions.

Went it was time to do my brake's,I went with SSBC Stainless Steel Slotted Rotor's & Hawk H.P. Ceramic Pads and Russell's SS Brake Lines.This setup now has been a Huge Improvement over the Stock Brake setup.IMO you don't need cross Drilled Rotors.This 4 Rotor & Brake pad setup I picked up at Summit Racing.

i know that alot of cheaper cross drilled rotor crack after a while. slotted are alot better IMO and are a good upgrade.1997 K1500 Silverado 4X4. Black Exterior, grey/black interior. 35X12.50X15 wheels and rubber, ProComp 6inch lift 6 shocks in the front 2 in the rear, 3 inch body lift, a few cosmetic mods. Nothing major. Custom leather interior, and stereo upgrade is the future mods.

so cross drilled is prolly a no go then. I will prolly just get the slotted rotors, i think they are cheaper anyway.
Thanks for the opinions and keep em coming.

I put Power Slot rotors on Front and rear with perf pads and upgraded to steel lines. BIG difference in stopping power and shortened distance. Highly recommend the brake upgarde.
