Looks awesome man. I think I am going to order a set tomorrow. I have also been thinking about painting my wheels black but am skeptical on what will last and not chip off. I am looking for a cheap route for right now without taking the wheels off and powder coating them. How did you do your and what did you use ? I appreciate it thanks.

How are those brakemotive brakes holding up, ORT? I'm in the market for new brakes, and am leaning heavily toward this complete setup. How many miles have you put on them so far? They are about half the price of their competitors, so I'm just worried about quality. Any info would be great, thanks!

I also have been considering a set all around but I have been told the same thing as someone else mentioned. You cannot have them turned because it will damage their equipment and I have also been warned that the drilling and slotting can be damaged when breaking in the rain or going through water. The cold water hitting the hot rotors can crack them between the holes. I would like to read some opinions on that before I switch over... they really do look great tho!

I purchased and installed the brakemotive drilled/slotted rotors and pads over the weekend, and they look and work great! I'll check back after a few thousand miles and let everyone know how they are holding up. Can't beat it for $200 though.

I never heard of that brand before, but they look good. I had a set cryogenically treated on my old Ram, but sadly never got to try them.

Can't wait to hear your report in a few weeks. Good luck

I have always heard that dimpled and slotted rotors gave the best of both worlds over drilled and slotted. The dimples dissipate the heat without the risk of cracking the rotors due to water splashing up. I do not personally have any experience with this, but it sounds logical.
