They are more for releasing heat than anything. Slotted ones on the other hand can, as they make a lot of contact with the pads. Baer makes some really good rotors/pads also. Let me know if I can help in any way. Our company has a discount for Hemi Truck Club members...

Are Power Stop rotors the ones that are bigger than stock rotors?

Maybe just a touch. To the eye don’t think you will really see a difference. I use power stop kits at work and for my business because I can get them in bundle sets but I do not really see a diff from them vs stock on nominal thickness

I don't think they are bigger but the kit is a good price, They hold up well and look and work well. They don't seem to rust as fast as a standard replacement, I have gone years before rust started to form on the hubs, They also don't seem warp. My daughters SUV I just replaced the pads and the rotors still looked like new.

No guys somewhere I was reading you can get a bigger brake setup for the RAMs. I know things will have to be changed out . So I was just asking if this was those rotors. Some sort of upgraded braking system for our trucks.

Bigger brakes, require bigger wheels... SRT10 are bigger.. best bang for the buck is hydroboost..
