Also, stay away from cross-drilled rotors for street applications. There's no need for them and they tend to develop hairline cracks due to uneven heating during street driving. You'll do plenty fine with slotted rotors.

I have run R1 Concepts rotors and I can say they are very high quality. I do agree with RikRong though, no need for drilled rotor, they just aren't worth the potential problems.

R1 offers e-line rotors which are their budget ones, then higher end ones as well. I ran the e-line rotors, and had no issues (even though they are the budget line, they still look must better quality than rotors from the auto parts stores, cleaner casting, better machining, etc. When I ordered mine, I called them and ordered over the phone, I requested slotted only (not drilled) and the price they quotes me was even cheaper than what they were listed on ebay for. Great company in my mind.

I ran then with EBC green-stuff pads, the pads are kind of noisy, but worked well. Hawk might be better, I don't know. Just don't use the life-time warranty pads from auto zone/advanced auto, they eat rotors real fast. And make sure to lube the caliper slides, clean everything up, and bed-in whatever pads you get.

ebc's are expensive, I looked into them for my truck.

I put Xdrilled and slotted rotors on my wrangler and had no issues. I have a set of slotted rotors and pads from R1 waiting to go on next week.

I have also used them for OEM replacement rotors and pads for my g/f's patriot. no issues so far
