Save your money, go to local auto store and pick up a set of their lowest priced blank rotors. Unless you want the cross drilled slotted look....

+1 I remember awhile back reading an in depth article explaining how blanks perform actually better than slotted or drilled rotors. They may help with dissipating heat better and brake dust. But because of the less surface area of contact the pads have actually perform worse for braking distances, as well as making the disc weaker and more prone to cracking and braking.

I use Centric E-coated rotors. No slots, no drilling.
I like the E-coating and the quality of machining.
Stock OEM pads.

..just my preference.
