    The rotors have "XR" cut into them.

    arkansas, did you buy the rotors like that or diy?? hopefully it didnt weaken the rotors and wont cause them to warp or crack after you've installed them. they look cool though!!

    He purchased them that way. The way the "xr" is cut into them is supposed to help them function like slotted rotors.

    Those CNC cuts into the rotor will function like slots. It will increase the surface area of the rotor and help it stay cool.

    They look great, good job.
