Disc Rotors - Standard

It is highly recommended that rotors be machined when doing a pad replacement. You might also consider machining your rotors if your car has vibration issues; however it is best to get advice from your local brake specialist.

The rotor surface can be slotted, slotted and dimpled or slotted and cross drilled. There are also options of heat treated steel and performance coatings. Performance rotors look good and perform great. Ask your local brake specialist which option is best for your needs.
