Which rotors?

Debating to go with normal rotors from my work (advanced auto) or buy drilled and slotted ones? Any suggestions

Do you plan on doing any racing? Drilled and slotted are kinda pointless when you aren't gonna reap the benefits of them.

I have drilled and slotted I think it gives it a mean look. And sheds some weight off. You really can't see them that good in these pics but I like them.

I've found them on eBay for about 150 for fronts and back. Thinking about ordering them tomorrow.

I love them! I had them matching my paint. It just got them painted all black. I'm going for a mineral gray/ black look. The black chrome ones are really nice!

These are done by tint. But I did spray ones on my F150 and it looked real good too. The spray just has more of a dull finish.

It's not hard you just take the lights out and spray 2-3 coats depending on how dark you want them.
My headlights are 6000k HID I have a little shop in my town that does them.

Re: Which rotors?

if you buy cheaper drilled/slotted rotors chances are they will warp or crack very soon. Basically avoid cheap stuff. Get high quality ones and it can still happen. They are only for looks anyways. If its not at least a 13 inch rotor then dont bother as the 11.x ones on non Cobra/Mach 1's look to small to be slotted or drilled anyway.

Go with a nice OEM rotor that will last, paint it to prevent rust around the center and edges (high temp engine paint) and it will look good for many years.

I have slotted rotors and spun out one night cause a drunk guy ran me off the road, but needless to say I hit the sidewalk and dented my rear rim a little (just the lip) but my rotor in the back warped from it and now have to buy a new one

If you're only spraying where the rotor mounts to the car. Not where the pads are applied. You'll be okay. What part are you trying to prevent from rusting?

You wont need to spray where the pad contacts the rotors.
