Drilled and slotted vs powerslot

Hey, I have a 2003 Dodge ram 2500 Quad cab. I have upgraded the rims to 22" ultra Peacemakers. I dont see to have a problem slowing and stopping my truck but my factory rotors look horrible. Rusted and chipping. I really like the look of the drilled and slotted rotors. How would a set of say-Rotora rotors compare to factory? Worse than factory? Better? How are they on pads? Ive heard they are like cheese graters on pads.Also, how would name brand drilled and slotted compare to powerslot? Seems that powerslot is very popular but i dont really like the look. The rotors are very visible behind my wheels. There is no towing or hauling being done with my truck. Highway driven daily driver. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I am leaning towards the Baer decellarotors. They cost a little bit more, but seem to be worth it to me.

Baer, Wilwood, stillen, SSBC or brembo make anything for a 2500 8 lug. Any ideas on Heavy dutys?

You can see their application charts on their websites. Baer has a real nice PDF with all or their wares.

Baer decellarotors are a rotor only replacement. They cost about $50 or so more than Powerslot's.

Go to NAPA and get their performance rotors (slotted and cross drilled) with a lifetime warranty on the rotors. I put them on our 05 Hemi, along with their heavy duty pads and love em. Quicker, more positive stops and noiseless. The whole set up was $234.00 for the front. I will be doing the back soon.
