So I broke down and bought the Baer brake drum2disc conversion for the 2006 Silverado's (got a really good deal)... Nice big 15" cross-drilled/slotted and zinc plated rotors with the red powdercoated calipers. Should look nice behind those new Intro's with thinner spokes...

I'll get pics of them installed as soon as I can, but I don't know when I will get around to actually doing that. Might have to hold off until I get the front brakes to match... we'll see what happens.

:D

I've heard that crossed drilled and slotted rotors can be bad on a daliy driven vehicle. They are good for racing and such, but not for everyday stop and go traffic. Is that true?

I had the cross drilled/slotted Baer Decelarotors on my Tahoe and loved them. I had Wagner Quiet Stop pads and it stopped on a dime and they look great too.

I had cross drilled and slotted rotors on my previous car for about 2 years (acura TL Type-S), never had an issue. I had cheapo ones on my Mustang I raced and they cracked after about 6 months, so I switched to Power Slot rotors and never had another problem.

I've had cross drilled/slotted Baer brakes for almost 2 years now on my truck. Never had a problem. Only issue I have to deal is lots of brake dust. That and chrome wheels equal lots of time cleaning!
