drilled brabe rotors vs non drilled ones

well I need front brakes on a 2008 silverado, actually I was told I need front wheel bearings ,so I though that while I am wrenchin' I might as well change brakes pads and rotors, hence the question what or why should I or not get drilled ones???thanks

With how there made now stay with stock rotors. Drilled rotors look cool but are more prone to cracking. They do offer better initial bite while wet though. If you have a go fast rig get good brakes an rotors. Basically stock stay oem.

Slotted-cross drilled rotors w/ceramic pads.
A while back a buddy was having the shimmies on his '07 Dakota. He had it to two shops, one turned the rotors the other said there's nothing that can be done about it, "All Dodges do it".
I replaced them w/slotted-drilled rotors,new hardware and ceramic pads.....No shimmy-shake for two years now.

the shimmy-shakes are from warped rotors, right?

It is better to use OEM parts as much as possible...You can get good prices on EBAY sometimes...

More often than not warped rotors. But with yours its more the failing bearings. Doesn't take much to warp them. Try to never let a shop turn a rotor. It's just a bandaid before they warp again.

besides a bit more grip,slotted/drilled rotors offer better brake cooling.

heat is really really bad for brakes overall but most rotor warping happens when they are hot and get doused with water
