Re: what r the best replacment brake/rotors?

The drilled/slotted rotors do REDUCE stopping distance,MOSTLY in racing or very aggresive driving situations,because when the pads get heated up fast they give off gases and the slots/holes let the gas escape without building up and pushing the pad away ,which reduces friction.
The slots are better as the holes do make them weaker,but on the street most people wont break 'em

Re: what r the best replacment brake/rotors?

i just installed the r1 cross drilled rotors front and back with the ceramic posi quiet's from r1. once broken-in the braking capability is far superior to stock. when the brakes are cold...you will notice less braking. when they warm up...the hotter they get, the more they grab. i'm extremely happy. only exception is the front rotors mght have started to warp. but i am not your typical spirited driver....i really push what the ovie can do, so trying to stop a 5400lb brick by 50mph in a short distance(numerous times in 20mins of driving) will be demanding even on the best rotors. good luck

Re: what r the best replacment brake/rotors?

Did someone just say that cross drilled rotors are not need for Jeeps. Um...they help out big time with pushing away heat to keep them from warping. I'm looking for a set now. But I cant find any.

Any links?

well.....i managed to warp the front r1 cross drilled premiums. if you've ever changed a clutch and have seen heat spots on the flywheel, my cross drilled rotors look like that. called r1 and they were nice enough to send me the front slotted only premiums...for free(warranty). so far so good. i don't think i can get them hot enough to tell about the warping prob since its winter.

Re: what r the best replacment brake/rotors?

Wow. I guess I'll stick with the regular rotors then.

OEM rotors on older GC's were an issue, as one of my friends has experienced. However my original WK brakes/rotors are still going strong with 62k on the odometer and no pulsing in the pedal. If drilled and slotted rotors were better than solid ones, then why do no automakers use them as OEM ? The only time they might be better is when they are hot, but stopping distances until they get hot, and in cold weather are worse than with solid rotors.
