Well, to increase braking power, there is going to be more brake wear. Yes, slotted rotors will have more pad wear, but will also brake better compared to a blank rotor (no holes or slots, etc.). However, the difference in pad wear comparing a slotted rotor vs. a blank rotor is minimal. This is why most owners with slotted rotors don't even notice the difference... I can't.So I have read that slotted rotors lower pad life since they bite into the pad more. Any truth to this?
