Performance Brake Rotors

Cross-Drilled, Slotted, 2-Piece, & High Carbon Rotors

You understand the importance of keeping your vehicle in tip-top condition, and you probably have a maintenance schedule that you can perform blindfolded by now. However, there are always parts of the vehicle people forget about, and brake parts are no exception. Brake fluid, lines and pads are all a very big part of making sure you can stop your vehicle as quickly as is required in any different situation, but another important part is the brake rotor.

The braking system is not as simple as it seems, and when you put your foot on the pedal, there are a number of things happening. At the end of the process, the brake pads will be squeezed against each rotor, and this will cause each wheel to slow down so the vehicle stops before anything bad happens. Brake rotors are a relatively simple piece of the equation, but without them, you won't be able to stop the car.

Brake rotors are made of high-strength steel materials, and some are even made of titanium for the extra strength. There are a number of different types of brake rotors to offer you different performance levels and each one can work better in different situations. Drilled rotors are, as the name suggests, rotors with holes drilled into them, which allows for the immense amount of heat to escape and for water to be moved away from them. Slotted rotors are similar in that they have grooves at well-defined intervals, which allows water and heat to move away from the top of the rotor.

When your rotors reach a certain age they will of course begin to succumb to the amazing amount of heat and friction they are subjected to every time you stop the vehicle. When this happens, they can begin to warp, chip or even break, which means they will no longer be able to work as they are designed to. If they are warped, then the brake pads are not going to make proper contact with them so you lose a lot of efficiency, and chips can cause similar problems but not quite as serious.

When you do have problems with your brake rotors, you will be warned before the problems become dangerous. If you notice that the brake pedal pulsates or vibrates when you put your foot on it, especially when you are braking hard, then this is a sign of warping. If there is a shudder spreading through the vehicle when you brake, especially if you do so harshly, then this can be a warning of chips or breaks. None of these problems should be ignored and you should at least check your rotors as soon as you discover problems, especially if you like to drive enthusiastically.

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 the advantages of each disc brake rotor so that you can make the right choice and get the best for your vehicle. All rotors, except ceramic brake rotors and two-piece rotors with aluminum centers, are typically one piece and crafted from iron for maximum heat absorption.

Replaced Rotors On My Early 99 Ford F250

Ordered the rotors on Mon. AM, they arrived Wed. AM in excellent condition. Installed them the following day, they were a perfect fit! The entire procedure, from ordering thru installation could not have went any smoother.
