    Hey guys, my honey wants drilled and slotted rotors for his 02 Taco.The truck is currently running metal to metal on the front brakes:eek:, so it's parked until we replace them. I could also use some help finding decent front brake pads!!! (I want my car back!:rolleyes:) Any suggestions at all are appreciated!

    Stay away from drilled. They can crack over time. Powerslot and EBC are really good.

    Drilled and slotted rotors are a waste on anything but a race application. Tacomas are far from that. The best combination by far is EBC Yellow pads and Centric rotors.

    Thanks guys, yea I've done a little more research and since he already has the larger brakes that came with the truck, and I don't see any heat issues, I am gonna get him the regular rotors and ceramic pads. We aren't pulling anything with it yet so I don't think its necessary. When we get a trailer for the bikes, I'll think about upgrading the brake system if it comes up. Thanks for your help guys!

    Slotted rotors aren't a complete waste on a street vehicle. Yes you won't have Porsche stopping distances but slotted rotors with good pads will help.
