i recomend the R1 ones, they are the only brand i have tried between my monte carlo and my brothers impala that did not warp. but i do not know what brand blanks they start with now.
one brand i do NOT recomend is NAPA. worst rotors and pads i ever had. first 5000miles they squeeled like mad. by 8000miles they were warped, only highway driving. by 12,000 high way miles in one year the pads are worn out and need to be replaced.
i am trying AC Delco rotors right now, just need to install them to replace the NAPA junk. I just need the car right away and do not have time to wait for R1 rotors to come in
Reality check: Unless you're going for looks, any good quality blank rotor will work fine.
The Autozone 2-year warranty rotors on my cars are going on 120k miles and are virtually unworn and with only a tiny bit of warping, not too shappy for $40 a piece 4 years ago! I wouldnt go with their cheaper rotor though, just my opinion.
I do have a full set of new Centric rotors at home, the ones with the painted black hats They look nice, but I havent gotten around to installing them to see if they're any good.
If you shop on Rockauto.com or even amazon.com, you can get Centric or other rotors almost as cheap as the local parts stores. Thats where I got all my brake parts this summer.
EDIT: looked at the R1 site, if you look at the specs on their rotors, the picture is taken straight from Centric pictures according to the pics posted on RockAuto. So at least they are using decent blanks, unless they just ripped the specs off from Centric.
