Replacing Brake Rotors
Brake Rotor Replacement
A sure sign that it's time to replace brake rotors is if your car is wobbling or pulsating when you drive at highway speeds. Wobbling or pulsating sensation indicate that your brake rotors are warped or worn. Over time, the pressure of the brake calipers pressing into the brake rotors can lead to heat spots and grooves which damage brake rotors. Another cause of damage can come from brake pads wearing too thin. When this happens, the metal of the brake pads scrapes against the metal of the brake rotors.
