What Type of Rotor is Best for You?
The type of brake rotors you need depends greatly on the type of vehicle you drive and the type of driving you do. You’ll find slotted brake rotors, cross drilled rotors and drilled and slotted rotors. And, before you can choose between them, you should understand the basic differences.
Slotted brake rotors feature slots that actually allow the discs to expel built-up brake dust and gases that are generated each time you tap your brakes. So, they don’t just look good, but they’re functional too. And, they work with traditional brake pads or performance brake pads. Drilled brake rotors, on the other hand, do not have grooves, but rather, they have holes drilled through the surface of the rotors. Besides simply looking cool, these holes allow brake dust and gas to vent. Can’t decide between slotted or drilled rotors? Now you don’t have to. A third option exists that combines the best of both worlds—drilled and slotted rotors. These brake rotors feature the stylish slots from the slotted rotors plus the handy holes from the drilled rotors.
