SP Performance Brake Rotors
SP Performance Brake Rotors are manufactured using the best quality rotor blanks on the market today. Our rotors are offered in a variety of different designs and coatings to best suit each car or truck enthusiasts needs. Our rotors are offered in:
DRILLED & SLOTTED
SP Performance Drilled and Slotted Brake Rotors provide the best combination for out-gassing and cooling.
SP Performance Slotted Rotors contain a series of slots which forces the gasses to expel keeping the rotors and pads cool.
SP Performance Diamond Slotted Rotors were created to maximize out-gassing with a series of slots and diamonds while looking great.
Performance Brake Rotors vs. Stock Brake Rotors
The question we get asked the most is whats the benefit of Performance Brake Rotors over the stock plain brake rotors. Well the answer is simple. When the Brake Rotor and the Brake Pads make contact, a gas is created which builds up between the two components. This gas pushes the brake pad away from the rotor, making both components work harder to stop the vehicle. By adding the Cross Drilled Holes and Slots to the face of the rotor, this allows the gasses to escape, keeping both the Brake Pads and Brake Rotors cooler and increasing stopping power. Secondly, the Slots (Slotted Rotors, Drilled and Slotted, Diamond Slotted) serve as an escape for the brake dust and water from the road, keeping the wheels cleaner.
Semi-Metallic Pads vs. Ceramic Pads
So what exactly is the difference between Semi-Metallic Brake Pads and Ceramic Brake Pads? Semi-Metallic Brake Pads are performance for most of the vehicles on the road today, including Compact, Mid-range and Heavy Duty cars, Trucks and SUV's. The use of Semi-Metallic Brake Pads is highly recommended for Towing, Work Trucks and Sports cars. The performance of Semi-Metallic pads is immediate and are great for high heat applications and keep your breaking noise free. Ceramic Brake Pads are ideal for Compact and Mid-Range cars and light duty Trucks and SUV's. They are highly not recommended for any type of heavy applications such as towing or work trucks. Ceramic Pads are designed to wear longer and provide very little brake dust which keeps those wheels looking clean.

I normally do not write reviews but my experience with SP Performance was first class. First I would say customer service is five star. They were very quick to answer questions and help me with the products i needed. Second the price was very competitive. I was very surprised with the quality and high dollar feel of the rotors. They were packaged as if I spent 2k on them. Third the fitment was spot on and they look great. I definitely will buy my next break kit from SP Performance.

Excellent rotor. Fit perfect on my 14 Silverado. Combined with hawk pads. These perform very well.

Friendly staff. Highly recommend calling them and speaking with them directly. They made sure I got the right parts for my truck, and I was able to pick them up same day! If you're a CT resident like me, take advantage of having these guys locally. If you order parts like these online, they take several weeks to ship usually.

I've used this company product on 2 of my cars. 1994 Corvette a 2000 Lincoln LS. Extremely happy both times. The Corvette application is now 3 years old and the rotors have showed no signs of corrosion or flaking of the coated finish. Also excellent customer service and very fast delivery of the product.
