brake rotors and brakes

Ok guys I need help I know nothing about brakes and rotors except on how to change them. I need to replace both my front rotors and brakes so I'm looking at these for the rotors but I need help deciding if these will work with my 15" wheels.

I also need to know what kind of brakes I need or will work with these rotors.

thanks for the help again guys!

Sorry, but I have a stupid question: What is wrong with your stock set up?

I checked out the rotors.... Assuming your Jeep is in the range for the application, they should work fine. However, the mud may get into the slots if you go off-roading and that would kind of be counter-productive to the design. Slotted rotors could be handy for a DD application.

Yea, I've seen slotted rotors get a rock stuck in them and rout out the pads pretty quick.... Just go with wagner STEEL rotors, not composite.

As stated above do not go with slotted rotors as they do hold dirt,mud,sand and even small rocks. If you need more stopping power there are setups with multi calipers that should do the trick. And hows your training going?

Drilled and or slotted rotors are for racing applications only. Although the might help in the very slightest times that you have to slam on the brakes, they really are more of a pain in the rear than anything on a vehicle like ours.

With todays modern pads that give off little to no gases slotyed rotors are more for looks and don't do much till high speeds. But if you really want great brake pads buy some HAWK HPS street racing pads they wera very well and have little dust. They also stop awsome compaired to your average pad but are around 80$ for one pair. Just a thought?
