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.
