Rotor Reccomendations

Hey, I've been running the OEM rotors on my '03 SVT since I got it, and recently changed the pads out to Hawk HPS. That was a month or so ago, and when I installed them I had the rotors resurfaced. Lately I've been hearing really nasty grinding noises anytime my car is not under power or brake (i.e. if I'm just coasting). I'm pretty sure that my rotors need to be replaced, they were pretty thin when I had them resurfaced, so I'm just guessing they are starting to warp. Since I don't want to eat up my brand new pads, I need new rotors, but the Brembos on TireRack are back ordered for 6-8 weeks! I can't find any other site that sells the Brembo SVT rotors, does anyone know where I can find them, and if not, can anyone give me good recommendations for replacement rotors? I was reading on here about EBC, and they don't seem worth it, what about PowerSlot rotors? Any help?

Avoid cross-drilled/slotted...it doesn't do anything other than enhance the rotor's appearance. I've been running Centric for the past 20,000 miles and I don't have a single complaint about them.

If you can't track down any Brembos, the solid rotors from Bat Inc. are pretty good as well.

I got a set of EBC rotors with my BAT front brake kit...they were pretty good, other than rusting heavily on any unswept surfaces. If you get EBC blanks (their slotted/dimpled rotors are plated) be sure to hit all unswept areas with a few coats of high temperature paint before installing them. Unless, of course, you don't mind having rusty rotors...
