Replacement Rotors suggestions

Looking to replace my front rotors, perhaps rears as well depending on how things look. I don't want spend a fortune but will pay for quality. I would like an American made rotor and one that's of better quality...not foreign OEM. Any suggestions?

you could try napa if you got one cause it wont be as expensive as from ford dealer but will offer a good selection like plain rotors and drilled and slotted if you want to go that route but they do offer good rotors that are made in america not the cheap oem ones

I like Baer racing. wilwood & stop tech. If I was replacing stock size rotors on a SVT, I'd use Baer rotors.

centric works quite well. for alittle extra you can get the non braking areas coated in powder to prevent rust from appearing on those areas.

There are a few different kinds, the cheapest ones are uncoated. Then the ones that are coated that cost a little more. I got the centric high carbon rotors which are also coated.
