Brakes are essential for safe driving. In the disc braking system, one of the key components is your rotor. Calipers squeeze against your rotor, creating friction and heat. Kinetic energy is converted to thermal energy, which is then absorbed by the rotors and used to stop the vehicle. Your rotors need to be able to dissipate this heat efficiently. Signs that the rotors are wearing out is an increased distance needed to stop. If your rotors wear out, the brake pads may be close to follow as they work with each other. Look out for symptoms and get your rotors replaced at the first sign of something amiss.
