Yeah, I see that. Sorry buddy... I think I missed ONE letter or number at the end of the link.

Anyway- Read this THREAD:
Here's what I did- and it turns out I should've just bought the PowerSlot or PowerStop's in the first place...the rotors I got looked nice when I FIRST got them, but they quality of them is def less.

I bought some other brand- b/c I liked the look of the slots better (they looked more 'high-end'...or like Stop-Tech's or Brembo's REAL-DEAL BBK's...

They are HORRIBLE compared to the rotors you got. (my dad put them on his Jeep- and they're not even getting orange or discolored where the PADS rub! They're STILL shiny silver...and have been for months...Crazy)

I found out AFTER I ordered and received mine- that I could opted to have them Zinc-coated for an extra $35. REALLY wish I knew that..instead I painted them with high-heat Brake paint and let my new $190+ EBC Redstuff pads take the paint off, where the pads rubbed.


BEFORE - 11.65" front rotors, with Floating, 2-piston calipers.


AFTER - 12.4" front rotors, with Fixed, 4-piston calipers!

Although- the last set of [PowerSTOP rotors (which is made by the same company as PowerSLOTS, that you're getting) I bought were from Brakemotive. I'd strongly recommend them- Best Prices and AWESOME customer service as well.
They can be found here:

Can't beat the price - ALL FOUR with Ceramic pads for only a little over $160 SHIPPED.
***ONLY THING IS... they are PowerStop rotors and are both Cross-Drilled AND Slotted.

Honestly though- I've had both types before- and if anything, I actually like the PowerStop's MORE than just Slotted.

Hope this helped ya out a little... later
