Brake rotors and drums are an important components in the braking system that stop your vehicle. Brake rotors (they’re also called brake discs) are what your vehicle’s brake pads clamp down on to stop the wheels from spinning. Some vehicles have brake drums and shoes instead of rotors and pads on the rear wheels
Most brake pad companies and mechanics agree that pads typically last between 48,000 and 112,000 kilometers. We usually recommend changing your rotors the same time you change your brake pads for maximum efficiency and safety.
We recommend servicing your braking system every 25,000KM or once per one year to lubricate all sliders etc.
We recommend brake flushes every 60,00KM to 80,000KM to get rid of moisture in the brake fluid that would cause your brake lines to rust inside out, which helps raise the boiling point of the brake fluid so you have a solid break pedal under high heat temperatures.
Noisy brakes. One of the first symptoms commonly associated with bad brake rotors is noise. If the rotors are warped (meaning not perfectly flat) or severely worn, they may produce squealing or squeaking sounds. Usually warped rotors will produce a squeak, while severely worn rotors will produce a scraping sound
Although bad rotors will still make your brakes functional, it can progress to the point that the brakes are ineffective and might totally fail, putting you and the car in danger. Another sign of bad rotors can be steering wheel vibration.
