Wass up guys. I just got me some new 22inch wheels & need to up grade my brake rotors. I know theres like hundreds of different types of rotors out there for my 02 sierra. What brand and type of rotors would be the best with out putting a big hole in my wallet? Where & want company sales them?

Hawk brake pads and powerslot rotors. I'd also shell out for stainless steel brake lines as well to firm up the pedal. That combo won't break the bank and stylinconcepts.com has all of that stuff.

are Power Slot and Power Stop rotors the same Company? Either way, I have heard good things from both for just a rotor upgrade.

Reybestos is also a good quality pad to go with....



For some extra $$$.... i think you can get Baer Eradispeed +1 Rotors which comes with Bigger sized rotors and caliper brackets which make a pretty big difference in stopping.

i would say whatever brand you do get, try to stay away from cross drilled rotors... and get slotted instead... the cross drilled have a tendency to crack when they heat up...

PowerSTOP are crossdrilled rotors and PowerSLOT are, of course, slotted. Both are different companies. Crossdrilled rotors do tend to not be liked because the do form cracks off the holes. One thing not always understood about crossdrilled rotors are that minor cracks are really normal. They do become a problem when the cracks start linking the drilled holes. Either way, slotted rotors are prefered IMO and you'll avoid any crossdrilled issues.
