I think it looks awesome...I will order today..

What are those pads that have "Little to No Brake Dust"????

Because I refuse to clean my wheels 2x's a day if I go Stock pads on Cross Drilled Rotors...

Yes, the holes should be countersunk/chamfered to avoid the 'cheese grater'. Even then, you may see a somewhat reduced pad life, but personally I wouldn't see that as a problem. They look cool! ;)


I thought pads have 1/2 the life expectancy with cross drilled vs. normal rotors

...SOmething about the "Cheese Grater" effect

I also heard it was best to countersink the holes so to eliminate this...

Any opinions guys?


What is the advantages/disadvantages of having Cross Drilled rotors VS regular ones. Does anyone have them on their car and what have been there experience.
