Top 7 Best Performing Brake Rotors

If you are going to be making customizations to your vehicle – and especially if you are going to be doing in order to make off-roading better – you will want to ensure you have quality brake rotors. Because of this, we researched the best brake rotors on the market and will present you with the top 7 performing ones for your adventuring needs.

Power Stop Evolution

These rotors have a great price point and their quality is pretty solid. However, they have a limited amount of applications compared to other rotors. At the end of the day, this is a great option if the price point is the most important thing for you.

EBC USR Series

These are a very sharp looking set of brake rotors, however, the black coating that helps them look so cool is easily chipped. With the price point of this series, it is best used on track rather than off-road. 

BAER Sports Rotor

The drilled and slotted manufacturing on these rotors makes the cooling improved, and these American-made rotors have plenty of applications. One of the main downsides of these is how expensive they are. 

Brembo UV Coated

Good cooling and a great, high-quality look. However, these are expensive and have a limited application. 

Hawk Performance Sector 27 Rotor

A very great price, Made-in-America, and suitable for many, many vehicle types. However, these rotors have subpar cooling when compared to other rotors. 

DBA T-Slot Rotors

These sleek, cool-looking rotors have large venting surfaces for excellent cooling. But, they have limited applications. Great-looking, but rather expensive. 

StopTech Sports Select Rotor

These look great and have a good price, plus they look fantastic. These are sold individually and are not American-made. However, StopTech is one of the most reputable names in the game.
