    Welcome to the club. For a street truck I prefer the slotted. Drilled rotors get heat cracks around the holes. Race cars use them because the do cool better but they get changed after one or a few races, unlike your street truck that may have them on for years.

    maybe you should have your rotors checked before you start spending cash. unless you're dead set on having neat looking rotors.

    Big75 is right, having them checked can save you a lot of cash. Even if you end up just getting them turned, that would be cheaper than a new set.
