I am looking at rotors on Rockauto for both my Flex and Vue. Ultra brand rotors are available for both vehicles for a really good closeout price. I have googled and cannot find any info on these slotted rotors. Anyone have any info on these?

there is a pretty good picture here ---> http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=6270603&cc=1443545&jnid=386&jpid=0

they just don't look like the rotors that I am used to, but I must admit that I do not keep up on rotor technology.

You will find the shipping from RockAuto for rotors makes them pretty expensive. Maybe you can find some on Amazon with free shipping.

I buy a lot from RockAuto (including an engine) but I get rotors from Amazon.

thanks Donald, IF these rotors are any good (they look identical to Napa Ultra Premiums pictured here http://forum.mazda6club.com/picture-videos/243996-napa-ultra-premium-rotors-pads.html )

they are still a bit cheaper than anything at Amazon with free shipping.

Wow, those are cheap. I am not a fan of drilled or slotted rotors for a daily driver, but if you are installing them yourself you don't have much to lose.

Shipping can be the killer for heavy items like rotors at RockAuto. I look on Amazon to see if I can get rotors with free shipping.

To be honest I would just stick with OEM. More expensive but I refuse to put on low grade brake items.

Which is why I don't get rotors on RockAuto, with shipping I might as well buy local.

They are probably fine as long as they have an anti-rust coating smile

The local guys know this and jack up the prices anyway. I check between B&M, amazon, and rockauto... no clear winners to my zip code.

I have used those rotors before, as well as a friend of mine. No problems at all with either set of them. The only thing those do is they get a bit noisy when they wear down, by that time it is time to replace them. Another good point is the slots are cut down to the minimum thickness usually. So if you see that slots are almost gone then it is time for new ones (usually when they get noisy). If they are a good deal,then go for it, you won't be disappointed.
