Rehash the Great Rotor Question
I know this has been covered a few times before, but I want the current general concensus.
After putting on new rims, alot more of my brake rotors show, and they a UGG-UL-LY.
So rather than painting them, I may just replace them with something that uses a harder blank. Some my trains of thought:
1) Although I use Ceramic Pads, I haven't experienced the warped rotor problem some of the new Bonneville owners have.
2) I picked up from here that drilled rotors are more prone to cracking.
3) Someone posted about a nice rotor that was slotted, buy only down to min. thickness, and if I remember correctly, had diamond shaped holes that only went down to min. thickness. I really like the look of a slotted/drilled rotor, but don't want anything that is weakened to much)
4) All things being equal, I would prefer to buy from someone who participates/supports us Bonneville guys. (If they can provide what works best, looks nicest)
So what are you guys running, or recommend?
(Side question: Are the higher quality rotors made of a material that doesn't rust, so I wouldn't have to paint the center of them?)
