Vented rotors....any suggestions?

I need to replace the front rotors on 2 of my tundras.
I see a bunch of different brands-prices.

Does anyone have any pros or cons with any of the aftermarket rotors out there?

THanks!

I put power slot cryo rotors on front and rear with hawk lts pads a couple months ago and have zero bad things to say about them. Not quite the stopping that a big brake kit would have given but better than stock enough to offset the increase in stopping distance from my 35" tires.

Got them from buybrakes.com. They are a supporting vendor here and offer a discount for forum members

Thanks for the suggestions all, with that being said without giving any input in the decision, some jerk (my pop) ordered 2 pairs of the EBC USR7435 rotors from Summit. His justification (even though they were more expensive) was 'they are black and awesome looking'.

I pull that same poop all the time so I cant fault him for it!!!!

Looks like I am going to have a rotor install party soon.

My stock rotors were warped at 30k miles. I replaced them with Power Stop along with their pads. For under $400 a set they seem to work pretty good.

I am a proud original owner of an extended cab 2001 TRD Tundra 4x4 and want to participate in these forums to share my experiences and to also get tips from those who share the same passion for a great truck. I just ordered a new power stop brake kit online and going to replace my old original rotors that been cut I think twice over 140k ,, I notice the vibration braking driving down hills especially. Last time I did a wheel rotation, I noticed the pads were thin..last brake job was around 90k.. so i can't complain and hoping to get any advice for this kit. I did a parts search and thought to get the towing brake kit but opted for the standard kit because I really don't tow nothing. Are these kits easy to install? Should I get anything like degreasers/lubes/ brake fluid before starting this job? I've done brake pads before , pretty good with a wrench, did my muffler and read shocks. Just want to have everything before I get into the project. I hope I oredered the right "power stop kit " tia, john

HULZAZZ, did you do the drums and shoes too or just the front pads and rotors? This is the set I just ordered, Power Stop K2323 Front Ceramic Brake Pad and Cross Drilled/Slotted Combo Rotor One-Click Brake Kit. There was two choices on the site for ordering: kit power stop k2323 or k2324 but, I am guessing the later was for towing or heavy duty kit, I hope I ordered the right kit? I plan on doing the job myself so wondering if I need any lubes or degreaser etc. tia john

I have a 2008 truck, they have disc brakes all around. I changed all four pads and rotors. I didn't need anything but some hand tools, jack, jack stands and brake cleaner to do the job in my driveway.

The hardest part was figuring out how to compress the caliper to get the pads in. I ended up using a small C-clamp I had lying around. Other than that no issues and pretty straight forward. Just remember not to kink or tug on your brake lines when removing the caliper.

Roger! I am guessing the K2323 kit is Standard this is the one I ordered, I am not sure yet what the difference is between K2323 kit and K2324 kit .. I guess I'll call the company's help line and find out today. But yes, I have C clamps too should I need them.. I've done pads before so I know what you mean. thanks for the reply

brake kit # per size of calipers

Okay, checked with Powerstop and she said the difference between the two kits were based on the size of the trucks calipers..She said there is usual a number stamped on the cast that might be visible without taking off the wheel. But I ordered the part based on the suggested part through the order drop down model search part menu on amazon. So I'm hoping it is the right kit Amazon suggested

Nice refinishing work too! I am going to eventually learn how to re fret and finish my own guitars. I will remember to take pictures of my brake job too before and after.The back drums and shoes I have not bothered with because they don't to seem wear down according to those who recently inspected them. Anybody know when or if the drums and shoes should be replaced? I had all new brake lines done under a recent recall at Toyota where I bought it new in 2001. This kit will be the third job for the fronts.
