Brake Rotors

FIRESTONE COMPLETE AUTO CARE PERFORMS OVER ONE MILLION BRAKE REPAIRS EVERY YEAR.

Brake Rotors Replacement

A sure sign that it’s time to get a brake inspection is when your car is shaking or pulsating when you brake at any speed. That vibration or pulsating sensation may indicate that your brake rotors are warped or worn down. Over time, the pressure of the brake calipers pressing the brake pad into the brake rotors can lead to heat spots and grooves, which can damage the rotors. Damage also can happen when the brake pads wear too thin. If this happens, the metal portion of the brake pad backing plate scrapes against the metal of the brake rotors.

If you’re wondering when to replace brake rotors, come into your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care store. Our service professionals will perform a free brake check* and inspect your brake system. If brake rotors have significant wear and tear or are warped, they may be able to be resurfaced. When rotors can no longer be resurfaced, they must be replaced. *Brake service costs extra.
