I have a 2000 honda accord ex coupe, i purchased some basic drilled and slotted rotors for front and rear. Thank god my dad works for honda so i purchased Honda factory padds for half off. Honda pads look better than autozone and oreily products. What do u guys think is it a good match with factory pads and just replace my stock rotors for drilled and slotted and puting on new honda pads all around. Should run the same right??? I also purchased the rotors for a lil style also. What u guys think ???

Perhaps

and not brakedust your wheels
probably less dust

and they stop better....
they may be more fade-resistant, but your stopping distances are limited by the adhesion of your tires


Drilled and slotted rotors will be noisier and will wear your pads faster due to the well-known "cheese grater" effect on the pads. If you race, you may see a very slight benefit in excessive rain, but that's it. The major benefit of drilled/slotted rotors is cosmetic - they look cool.

Zinc plating on rotors will help the area not in contact with the brake pads from rusting, for a while anyway, as time will eventually take it's toll and even zinc plated surface will start to rust.

Ceramic is in reference to brake pads material, they will dust less and much easier to clean off from rims, it doesn't stop better or worse than premium (non-racing) pads.

they will be noisier, they also vent more of the gasses out between pad and rotor, which helps reduce brake fade, the harder the pad the longer it will last..
