Front Brake Rotors: if Rotors Have Deep Grooves in Them Are They …

If rotors have deep grooves in them are they UNsafe to drive on. Just had my front brake pads replaced and was told that rotors needed to be replaced, but when I pushed them on it, they said it wasn’t UNsafe, it just might be noisy. AT what point would driving on these rotors be UNsafe and is there any …

Grooves in new rotors after brake job – EricTheCarGuy …

A few months ago I installed new brake pads and rotors on my 2010 Chevy Malibu. The pads I installed where auto zone CMAX pads and are supposed to be really good pads. After a month or two of driving, I noticed grooves in my new rotors on both front pads. The calipers seemed like they where in good shape and the …

Inspecting Brake Rotors – Brake Performance

On worn brake rotors, if you follow the rotor to the edge you can usually feel/see a noticeable lip. This lip is created as the brake pads normally don’t contact all of the rotor surface and therefore leaves an outer lip when the rotors are worn down.

What causes record grooving in brake rotors? – AcuraZine – Acura …

Generally speaking, what causes rotors to wear kind of like record grooves? Just regular wear? pads harder than rotors? grit?, not bedded right?, etc??

Problem with brake rotor grooves – Rennlist – Porsche Discussion …

Went to a DE tech inspection on Saturday and they noticed that my rear brake rotors have grooves that feel like a series of bumps when you run your finger across them. The passenger side rotor has the grooves on both sides, the driver’s side the grooves are only present on the inside face of the rotor.

Why are there grooves on disc brakes? – Quora

The disc which you are referring to is called a rotor. Disc brakes have 3 basic components 1. Rotors 2. Brake calipers 3. Brake pads. The rotors absorb the heat which is produced when the brake pads rub against it. The brake pads contain friction material which is held together by resin. When the brake pads become very …

Rotors are scored but pads aren’t worn down…causes? Do I need …

The grooves aren’t too deep but they can be felt when running a finger across the rotors. No noise and nothing too strange when applying the brakes. I did notice that the left rear pad was worn much more than the right rear pad, even though both were replaced at the same time last summer. So what would …

Car Brake Rotors: When To Resurface or Replace

We’ll grant them that. But do they really want to cut corners on their brakes? Resurfacing restores a flat, smooth surface that provides the proper friction characteristics, minimizes noiseproducing vibrations and allows for maximum pad contact. Installing new pads on a grooved rotor causes the pads to ride …

Ensure brake system is free of foreign objects during installation. Use high quality brake components from MEYLE. Replace brake pads along with brake discs! Score and groove marks on disc brakes. The problem: Brake pad fails to disengage and rubs against the disc. This can cause the brake system to overheat. Causes …

What causes record grooving in brake rotors? – AcuraZine – Acura …

The pads are not harder than the rotors, or else we would always be replacing rotors instead of pads. The pads are made of particles pressed together, and some of the particles are pretty hard. When the rotors get hot during braking, it softens the metal enough to allow the ‘grooving’ you mentioned from the …

5 Answers – Will driving with grooved rotors damage calipers? – Quora

I don’t believe that grooved rotors will damage the calipers as long as there is sufficient brake pad material left and you aren’t grinding metal on metal. If you let that go long enough, you will damage the entire brake system at that wheel and create a dangerous driving condition where you may not be able to stop. When you …

What are grooved rotors? – Quora

These a grooved rotors, or more useful called disk brakes. (two worlds seperated by a common language) The grooves and holes are for better cooling in hig…

Inspecting Brake Rotors – Brake Performance

If you have an openspoke wheel design, you can run your finger vertically down the brake rotor friction surface. If you can feel and see noticeable grooves, then it’s time for new brake rotors. For cars with hub caps that don’t expose the rotor, you will need to remove your wheel to inspect your brake rotors. 3. Rotor Edge Lip

Grooves on brake rotors? (NC) [Archive] – MX-5 Miata Forum

I noticed today both my rear rotors have grooves on them (the car has 12K miles on it). They’re not particularly deepthe rotors are relatively smooth. They’re in different spots on each rotor. Is this a matter for concern? Are my brake pads funky? The car stops on a dime with no undue amount of brake …

Car Brake Rotors: When To Resurface or Replace

Like brake pads, brake rotors don’t last forever. The rotors wear every time the brakes are applied. The rate at which rotors wear depends on a lot of variables: the type of brake pads on the vehicle, the metallurgy (hardness and quality) of the castings, how efficiently the rotors cool themselves, the type of …
