If they are made by Powerslot, I'll vouch for them. Those are great rotors. You might find them online for cheaper somewhere else though. I bought mine from a place I've forgotten, but I know they had the cheapest price and shipping was free.

Shop around.

Default powerslot rotors

my only concern is that summit is making these rotors for every model except the 2000 ssei, i recall reading somewhere that the 2000 ssei with 17 inch wheels has bigger rotors, correct? the price from summit is about 130 bucks a piece for the power slots, about 60 bucks a piece for the power "stop" rotors, and the summit brand for 35 bucks, i agree that the power slots are good rotors, just had look thriugh summit theres actually rotors there for 260 a piece, form ebc sport rotors

Don't get drilled. Either conventional or slotted.

If the holes are cast into the blanks BEFORE hardening/turning, they're ok, but you still lose surface area. If you want them, you need to increase your rotor diameter to make up for the loss of braking surface area the holes take away. Very few drilled rotors are made this way.

Improperly drilled rotors will stresscrack over time, and most brake shops won't turn them. There isn't a shop within 100 miles of me that will.

Slots shed water and brake pad gasses very well.

For the MOST part, drilled rotors are a 'cosmetic' thing that has become popular lately. They make your car look faster and add about 50hp, right?

On cars that ship from the factory with holes cast into the blanks (like the Corvette), the rotors are carefully calculated to be a larger size to maintain sufficient surface area for pad contact.
