All disc brake rotors have a minimum safe thickness. Once the rotors wear beyond this minimum thickness, they cannot get rid of the heat produced by repeated braking.
Heat is the enemy of disc brakes. Excessive heat will increase your stopping distance and cause your rotors to warp. In severe cases, this heat buildup may cause your brake fluid to boil, reducing your stopping power to zero.
A pedal that pulsates on light braking may indicate warped disc brake rotors. Squealing or scraping when braking may also indicate brake trouble.
Don’t take chances with your brakes. Take good care of them with quality auto parts – including the best brake rotors – from Advance Auto Parts.
Why you should inspect your brake rotors every 15,000 miles:
Your disc brake rotors take serious punishment. Every time you hit the brakes, the brake pads compress the rotors with thousands of pounds of stopping power. The material in the brake pads will eventually wear down the rotors.
If you have a warped or worn brake rotor, your vehicle will take longer to stop. Malfunctioning or poor performing brakes are dangerous. Don’t ever play games with safety. You don’t want to drive with a worn brake rotor. Inspect your brake rotors every 15 - 25,000 miles.
