im not quite sure but my friend who im getting my parts from asked me if i knew if it was an open rim or not.. because the premium rotors are better for open rims...

Open rims have open air gaps between the spokes. Standard stamped steel rims are not open rims. Those on my D are open.

The only "better" is for looks if you care about that. Drilled, dimpled, slotted etc are advertised for that. You really can't see much of the rotor behind the stock rims. When you move up to 20" or bigger rims with slim spokes, then you can really see the rotors. And boy do they look tiny behind 20" wheels.

yeah i spoke to my friend and he told me open rims are rims where you can see the rotor... therefore, he said its better to go with the premium rotors so they wont rust as much i think? well not exactly what he said but its something like that...

If they are wide opened, I'd paint the calipers a contrasting color to stand out. Looks great that way!!
