Id check to see if you can have them resurfaced and at what cost. It may be safer to get some new ones depending on your rotor thickness.

Either one I would use
I got blisters on my fingers!!!

I run some drilled slotted ones from eBay. Came with the car when I got it. I got a second set drilled slotted new for 40.00.
BUT

I ran 10.00 ones from autozone many times when the rears were on sale.
Never had an issue. I made sure to properly torque the wheels down.

Any will work! Just replace them in pairs.
