Personally, I'm a fan of the OEM. No premature wear, brakes great, no complaints
Yeah "LOVE" my stock rotors so much I replaced them three times already in 35,000 miles.

Well I changed mine twice (not including those Autozone pads, because those crapped out in two months due to being a malfunctioned part). I'm the original owner, and I have 83K miles.

You play hard you got to replace crap more than others, I drive aggressively but nothing compared to driving an SRT.

Agreed but there's absolutely no reason why rotors should warp if made properly to handle the stress. I've been driving hard for 30 years and have NEVER had to replace rotors on any of my vehicles EXCEPT this Charger. The factory SRT rotors suck.

Ask the guys at R1 to Zinc coat your rotor's hub and holes. Or they are going to rust like hell in no time. Seen too many rusted out eline rotors, which is why i went with the premium ones. Not something terribly wrong, it just looks bad on a new set of rotors.

Just made a call to R1 and yes they assured me the Elines are zinc coated. Thanks for the heads up!

FYI, Melvin from R1 concepts informed me that he recommends the premium drilled/slotted for those driving in salty and snow conditions. Other than that, if one is driving in so cal weather, like me, then he recommends the E LINE drilled/slotted rotors. just a heads up for those in the market and want to save $$$$ based on their specific road conditions where they live!

Just to let you know, drilled/slotted doesn't do much for braking in terms of day to day driving. In sports yes, because you do a lot of extreme braking and heat needs displacing with the quickness. For day to day driving they're just cool lookin' rotors. That's why the cars that normally come stock with them like the Viper is because it's a high performance car, so you'll need high performance rotors.

Yep, exactly. And they are prone to crack/break.

I thought R1 is offering dimpled rotors now. That should be a little better in structure integrity
