'07 FJ ready for its fourth set of front rotors. Since these warp more easily the thinner they get I'm not going to have them machined a second time. Any recommendations on 'the best' rotors to buy and from which parts store or site?

Brake Performance dimpled and slotted. I've put a set on the front of my FJ, 4Runner and Tacoma.

FJLarry - I went with your recommendation (Brake Performance dimpled and slotted). They took a week to get here but it feels like it was well worth it - thanks!

^^^
Glad you like them.
I just had my fronts turned last week after about 5 years. Had plenty of meat left on the rotors. Only drawback was they were 25$ a piece to turn because of the slots and dimples.
