Default Summit makes drilled/slotted rotors for the Bonneville

i was actually browsing for rotors for my car, and i noticed that Summit makes them for my car, which means they would fit the Bonneville as well.

they come in both drilled and drilled/slottted varities, and the most expensive ones are only 49.95 a pop, thats with free shipping, so you could have drilled/slotted rotors sitting on your front porch for 100 bucks.

Just make sure you look at the info well, because it lists my car and the 00+ Impala as having the same brake rotors, which shouldnt be true, as mine should have 11 inchers stock and the Impala 12....it also had some of the late model Camaro rotors coming up as 11 inches which i can guarantee is not accurate....so make sure you look at the applications.

it shouldnt matter for you Bonnie folk because you all have the 11 inchers, I would be pissed though if i ordered a set and they sent me 11s, because im quite happy with the 12s

anyway just thought yall might not have seen these!

Those are crossdrilled, which is the dumbest thing you can do on a street car. You want slotted, not crossdrilled.

Do a search on this here for the explanation. This is a serious issue.

If SS brakes has a kit for the bonneville it is worth a look. They have a good reputation for quality products but, limited applications. (Especialy older cars)

There are better prices for Powerslots than Summit. And some offer free shipping.

I have also heard that the cross drilled brake rotors are not safe being used on a street car. I have heard that they should only and strictly be used on track.
