Brake Disc Rotors
About Disc Brake Rotors
Disc brake rotors are one of the most important parts on your entire car as they play a major part in the braking system, ensuring you can stop safely. The primary job of a brake disc is, via application of the brake pedal actuating callipers to squeeze brake pads against the disc rotors, to convert the car's rotational kinetic energy to heat and then dissipate that heat as efficiently as possible. If your brake discs overheat, their efficiency is markedly reduced, braking performance is greatly affected and damage to the discs' surface can occur meaning they will need to be replaced earlier.
Common signs that it is time to change your disc brake rotors are reduced braking performance, shuddering felt through the brake pedal or metal-on-metal grinding sounds when your brakes are applied. When replacing your brake rotors, we strongly recommend also changing your brake pads as this will ensure you get the most life and performance from your new brake discs.
