What kind of rotors to buy?

Actually I bought already 2 rear rotors and 2X2 pads for 45$ from Nakamoto.
So what would be line of thinking here? Anyone used in past Nakamoto? Al part stores wanted for just one rotor 36$. So two rotors and pads would cost me almost 100$. What are best brands of rotors?

I have stoptech cryo rotors....never had a problem. of course these are much more expensive than what you have, but I don't plan on replacing rotors often and these have lived up to that expectation.

Brembo blank rotors are what I have on my TL. Well machined and have some the best anti-corrosion coating of any rotor which is great for tanking winter salt.

You can try any selection from blank, slotted, drilled, drilled/slotted, slotted/dimple and they offer ceramic pads as well. Any auto brand. Bought a kit set for my wifeís car of the slotted/dimple with ceramic pads and love the braking power. U canít go wrong with Brembo but if you are in a budget, the quality is good and last.

For the rear, I wouldn't worry too much. Most of the braking is done with the front brakes.

For the front, I went with EBC slotted years ago after having the ones that were on the car when I got it wrapped. This seemed to be a somewhat common problem and high-quality rotors on the front made a difference.
