What is the benefit of cross drilled rotors?
Click to see full answer.
Accordingly, do cross drilled rotors make a difference?
Most of our customers will not notice a difference in stopping performance from the brake rotor, but rather from the brake pads. The advantages from cross drilled and slotted rotors comes during extremely hard and repetitive braking such as in competition use.
is it safe to drill my rotors? The downside of using drilled rotors on your vehicle is that all of those holes tend to weaken the rotors -- just like punching holes in the wall of a house would weaken the wall. After repeated stressful driving, the rotors can even crack.
Consequently, are cross drilled rotors worth it?
Pros: If you live in an area that experiences a lot of rain, drilled rotors are a very good choice. They perform well in rainy climates by offering a good “wet bite,” hold up well over the life of the rotors, and deliver more friction and more bite than their slotted counterparts.
Do drilled rotors wear pads faster?
You wind up with a weaker brake pad that costs you more money. Ironically these drilled rotors are often worse with heat than a solid rotor! Drilled & slotted rotors also have a cheese grater effect on pads. So everything wears out faster.
