EBC sells "dimpled rotors" and slotted rotors. It's a sales gimmick. They still sell drilled rotors for motorcycles. The picture is from a cheap Chinese knock off and not the correct metal. If you...

Those 305/70/16s are pretty big. You may want to get them balanced on a Hunter 9700 Road Force balancer.

Do you use a anti bacterial additive in the fuel? You may have gooey bacteria goop growing in the bottom of your tank. It's more likely to happen if the truck sits for extended time.

Everyone thinks their car/truck is worth more than it really is. Offer him fair KBB price and when he can't sell it to anyone else maybe he'll come to his senses.
