    I'll catch all kinds of "Internet hell" for this...but you ask a simple question and I will answer you from experience and not what I read somewhere...fair enough?
    Drilled rotors often times crack from the drilled hole......slotted are good if properly matched with pads....BAER Brakes suck Donkey Balls and are very poor quality.

    What do you all think about dimpled/sloted rotors?

    What are some of the best brands?

    I have only been able to find the dimpled/sloted in one brand (Raceconcepts), its not a brand I have ever heard of. I was wondering if these will have any kind of the same affect as the DRILLED rotors with the cracking and stuff.

    What about pads, what are the better pads to use with these aftermarket rotors?

    i'd say go with the powerslots, i went to local autoparts store and decided not to wait for the delivery of the powerslots and purchased a set of "preformance" drilled rotors i think "streetheat" is the maker, supposadly made from baer blanks, well i've had them bout six months and they are full of heat spots, and beggining to warp......and there is no one who will resurface them because they are drilled, i've never heard of negative feedback on powerslots.....the only way i would ever buy another set of drilled rotors is if i purchased a profesional set.

    pay a little more, get a little more is what im learning everytime i replace a part.....thats just my opinion

    I have had very good luck with the Baer Eradispeed rotors coupled to Hawk HPS pads, a good idea also would be to replace your rubber brake hoses with Earls braided stainless steel lines.

    I have Baer Rotors in the front, after 3 rotor replacements (different from Baer) because of warping. I have never had a problem with Baer Eradispeed and would recommend them... 15,000 miles so far and Baer have worked great for me...

    Is there any advantage to changing the rear rotors? Most of the braking takes place in the front. I think.

    Most of the braking is up front but it will still benefit you to replace the rears as well...

    Can the brake balance be changed so the rears do more work?

    Wouldn't it make sense, physics wise? It would keep the nose from diving a little better...

    No. Since most of the weight is transferred forward during braking all you'll end up doing by adding more rear power is lock up the rears a lot more often.

    If you want to eliminate brake dive you need stiffer springs.
