How to Shop for Brake Rotors

What do you use your vehicle for?

Commuting

  • Back away from those race brakes buddy. Basic, OEM quality rotors are all you will ever need for simply commuting. But once you load your car down with gear and passengers, you might notice your brakes getting a little hot and smelly on the way back from the mountains. If so, your car will benefit from a set of drilled rotors. Otherwise, high-quality conventional rotors should work just fine for the daily driver. Shop brake rotors for commuting

Towing

  • Take your truck’s heft—add a few tons behind it and you end up with a boat-load of brake heat. Slotted or drilled rotors sweep away excessive heat, giving your braking power that lasts down the longest grade. Shop brake rotors for towing

Off-roading

  • Hot brakes are bad enough news on the road, so it’s not hard to imagine how unnerving spongy brakes can be when you’re zipping through the desert. Slotted and drilled rotors are a great choice for Pre-runner style driving, while high-quality OEM style rotors are better for mudding as slots and drilled holes can become clogged.

Street Performance

  • Power-adding accessories make your street terror downright scary when it comes time to stop. Slotted or drilled rotors are sure to keep your ride’s braking system cool as a cucumber during furious street driving. Shop performance brake rotors

Racing

  • Watch your favorite style of racing on T.V. and you’ll see brake rotors glowing cherry red as drivers attempt to contain a combination of monstrous horsepower and momentum. These cars depend on ultra-high performance rotors with 1 or 2-piece designs, specially-patterned slotted & drilled holes, and larger-than-stock sizes to boost braking power, while leaving excessive brake heat in the dust. Although they come at a greater price, 2- piece rotors offer lighter weight and greater thermal capacity. Shop racing brake rotors
