Whats to best rotors for 24 in rims
The rotors in disc brakes and the drums are what the pads and shoes rub against to stop a car. With use, the surface can get grooves in it or a build up of rust scale; reducing the braking efficiency. To machine the rotors and drums, they are put on a lathe that cuts a new smooth surface on the face of each. Depending on wear, any given rotor or drum can probably be turned 2 or 3 times before needing to be replaced.
The posts that the calipers slide on need to be lubed too. Look at the brakes, something is touching the rotors. Something has been put together wrong or the slides are binding and the pads are staying in contact with the rotors after the brakes are released.

Often pulling a trailer will overheat the brakes, especially if the trailer does not have electric brakes. If none of the above seem to apply to your situation, perhaps someone put cheaper rotors on the vehicle; some of the import rotors look the same but they warp quite easily. Also not torquing the lug nuts correctly can warp the rotors. If the lug nuts are put on too tight the rotors will warp on some vehicles.
