Brake Rotors

Front & Rear Brake Discs & Rotors, Rotor Shims

Whether you are driving in busy city traffic or roaring down the highway, the lives of you, your passengers, and all those around you depend on your vehicle’s brakes. And since brake rotors are one of the most critical components of the braking system, they must be in good working order to help bring you to a safe stop. The rotors are what the vehicle's brake pads squeeze to slow and ultimately stop your wheels and tires from turning.

Every time the brakes are applied, the rotors wear a little bit. How long it takes for them to wear out depends on a large variety of factors. Everything from the driver’s braking style to the kind of brake pads one has on the vehicle will affect the rotors’ lifespan. The hardness of the rotor material is also a factor because this affects the rotor’s friction qualities, as well as their strength, noise, pedal feel and even corrosion resistance.

Here are some of the technical attributes to know about rotors. First, the wear surface (the part that the pads press against) must remain rather smooth. If you see score lines here, this can be caused by dirt trapped between the pad and rotor. This could also be caused by a metal-to-metal condition. In either case, the rotor is wearing out. Second, all rotors have a specified minimum thickness. As it wears, it becomes thinner. Once it reaches that minimum thickness, it cannot shed heat, and must be replaced. Third, the rotor must not warp, which means its rubbing surface has gone out-of-round. If it does, you may feel a pulsation in the brake pedal. Again, a warped rotor will require replacement.

Although rotor resurfacing (cutting a clean face onto the rotor) is still occasionally done, today’s rotors are so thin, and the replacement cost so reasonable, that it usually makes sense just to replace them. If you are replacing rotors, always replace them in pairs (per axle, meaning either both fronts or both rears) for safety’s sake. Replacing just one rotor can result in uneven braking or pulling, and that’s a risky and dangerous way to drive! Don't skimp when it comes to your safety. Replace worn-out rotors as soon as feasible.

When it’s time to buy new rotors, don't spend a lot of time surfing on the web searching for the right set for your ride. We've done that job for you! Our wide catalog of replacement brake rotors is second to none. We've gathered the best quality rotors at the best prices to get you the parts you need without breaking the bank. And no matter which style rotor you want, whether solid, vented, slotted, or drilled, you'll find it on our digital shelves.

If you have owned a car or truck for more than a few months, you are undoubtedly aware that your vehicle's brakes occasionally need replacing. Let's face it, we can be hard on our brakes. Highway speeds, stop-and-go traffic, and heavy cargo loads are some of the more significant factors which increase brake wear.
In this article, we’ll introduce you to the specific tools designed to be used when replacing brake components and servicing your brake system. Having the right tools BEFORE you start working on your vehicle makes these types of jobs quick, easy, and doable for the home mechanic. It also prevents having to put things back together before the job is finished...
Disc brake rotors (aka 'rotors') are the actual discs that brake pads clamp onto, creating friction that slows a vehicle. Disc brake rotors bolt on over the axle hub and contain holes that allow wheel mounting bolts to pass through and rotate with the wheels. Since there are many rotor styles and designs specially created for every budget and need, we’ve listed...

Looks great, except paint has come off the inner hub (where no parts are making contact). Is there a touch up paint kit available?
