Are dimpled rotors noisy?

Yes you will have the Rattlesnake noise when using slotted and dimpled rotors.

Are dimpled and slotted rotors good?

Dimpled, slotted or drilled rotors simply allow the rotor more effective cooling. The indentations on the rotor surface allow more air to flow between the rotor & brake pad surface. This also allows for less chance of brake fade with the proper brake pads in place.

Do vented rotors make noise?

Cross drilled rotors do make noise, most come with paperwork in the box that describe the noise and tells you it is normal. Other noises could be caused by putting the caliper bolts in the wrong position.

Are solid or vented rotors better?

Solid rotors that have a slightly larger surface and offer better durability and stopping power. Vented brake rotors that provide better cooling and are less likely to warp and fade, particularly when heat cycles spike up and down during a competition.

Why drilled rotors are bad?

While drilled rotors have a lot to recommend them, they can wear unevenly and may develop cracks when used in racing vehicles due to the heat and temperature extremes of a race. Drilled rotors are also a poor choice for race cars.

Are drilled and slotted rotors good for daily driving?

DRILLED rotors are better for your daily driving because they are less prone to warping or getting high spots and they are usually easier on brake pads, but they do not perform as well under extreme braking as Slotted.

Who makes silent stop rotors?

​Federated Auto Parts
Silent Stop – PDI Federated. ​Federated Auto Parts has worked hard to develop a quality disc pad and disc rotor line that contains exceptional features at a competitive price.

Why are my brakes grinding after new pads and rotors?

The process of breaking in new brake pads is referred to as bedding in. But this noise should lessen as you drive your car and allow the pads to become worn in. There is Debris on the Brake Pad or Rotor. Another reason why your car may be grinding is that there is debris on your brake pad or rotor.

What are dimpled rotors?

Dimpled rotors are brake rotors that have a dimpled cavity. These indentations on the rotor’s contact surface, round in nature, allow the brake bad to outgas properly. Its minimal depth doesn’t affect the structural integrity of the rotor, thus it’s also a great solution for heavier SUV’s and trucks.

Why do we need slotted brake rotors instead of drilled holes?

Slotted Brake Rotor Kit. Slotted brake rotors have always been a great alternative for improving braking without the drilled holes. Brake Performance created this kit to give improved stopping power over factory rotors while reducing heat, noise, pad fade and brake dust.

What should I look for in a performance brake rotor?

The brake rotor or disc is machined balanced and guaranteed to fit original equipment manufacturer specs without any brake modification. All performance brake rotors are sold in pairs and come Zinc coated in either Black or Silver to help prevent rusting.

Is there a warranty on cross drilled and slotted brake rotors?

The cross drilled and slotted brake rotors are sold in pairs and come zinc coated in either black or silver to help prevent rusting and give you a performance race look. We include free a lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. As of March 2015, we now include a lifetime warranty against warping and cracking.
