Frequently Asked Questions

E-Line Series Rotors

The E-Line Series uses an iron grade of G3000, which is great for those who are looking for a moderate upgrade from their original braking system. The E-Line Series Cross-Drilled, Slotted, and Cross-Drilled and Slotted rotors come with a silver zinc plating throughout the rotor and are not two-toned in color. Silver zinc is applied to the rotors for rust protection. 1 year on warping, one year on manufacturer defects such as cracking. (1 time replacement). Rotors must be within minimum thickness. 
All E-Line Rotor Kits come complete with matching brake pads, and also include wear sensors (when applicable)

Premier Series Rotors

The Premier Series uses high carbon which results in a stronger rotor that can handle more demanding driving styles and conditions. Premier Rotors uses an iron grade of G3500 which is great for those who are looking for a even higher performance rotor. Thanks to Center Split Casting, Premier rotors have better air flow because they are built with a 50/50 center split vane structure design (some also comes curved vane and columned) for efficient air distribution to reduce the chance of heat spots.
In addition, the Premier Series rotors uses a black electro-coating process that gives the rotor a two-tone color finish which will also help against rust on the center hub, inner vane structure and outer rim of rotor. This coating cannot be easily scratched or removed. 1 year on warping, lifetime on manufacturer defects such as cracking. Rotors must be within minimum thickness.  
All Premium Rotor Kits come complete with matching brake pads, and also include wear sensors (when applicable)

What is the Difference Between Drilled Only, Slotted Only and Drilled & Slotted Rotors?

  • Drilled and Slotted provides a lighter rotational mass and It also provides a nice esthetic enhancement over the factory looking rotors. Drilled and Slotted Rotors also provides better heat dissipation which may help the chance of rotor warpage caused by overheating. The Slots on the rotors resurface the brake pads. By doing so you’ll have fresh pad to rotor contact which provides better braking and prevents the glazing of the rotor.

    • Drilled Only: This is exactly the same for the Drilled and Slotted rotors. The main and only difference is that there no slots. Some people feel that the slots throw off the look of the rotor and only want the drilled look.
    • Slotted Only: Same rule as the Drilled Only rotors. There are people who don’t like the drilled holes and just want to keep the slots only. When it comes to optimal performance, the Slotted Only rotor is also recommended for those who are heavy on the brakes or for those who are spirited drivers. These are the optimal choice due to the fact your brakes work off of friction.
