Brake rotors come in three main forms: slotted, drilled, and slotted/drilled. Each type offers its own unique advantages and disadvantages. Watch this video to learn about each type of brake rotor.
All three types of brake rotors are performance-oriented disc brakes, so both stopping power and cooling abilities are better than what drum brakes have to offer. Drilled rotors look and perform great, but slotted rotors and slotted/drilled rotors offer the performance advantage, as they’re able to keep the brakes even cooler during heavy braking. Go with slotted brake rotors if you do lots of performance driving or towing. For more information on the differences between the different types of brake rotors, watch this short video clip.
