Brake Rotors

FIRESTONE COMPLETE AUTO CARE PERFORMS NEARLY

ONE MILLION BRAKE REPAIRS EVERY YEAR.

BRAKE ROTOR REPLACEMENT

A sure sign that it's time to get a brake inspection is if your car is wobbling or pulsating when you brake at highway speeds. That wobbling or pulsating sensation is a possible indicator that your brake rotors are warped or worn. Over time, the pressure of the brake calipers pressing into the brake rotors can lead to heat spots and grooves which damage brake rotors. Another cause of damage can come from brake pads wearing too thin. When this happens, the metal of the brake pads scrapes against the metal of the brake rotors.

If you're wondering when to replace brake rotors, come into your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care store. Our Tire and Auto Service Professionals will perform a free brake check and inspect the health of your brake rotors. If brake rotors have significant wear or are warped, they can be resurfaced or replaced.

WHEN TO REPLACE BRAKE ROTORS

When it comes to replacing brake rotors, every car is different, dependent on manufacturer standards and driver habits. The need for brake rotor replacement or resurfacing is best determined with an inspection and review of manufacturer standards. If your car begins pulsating or wobbling, or your brakes begin squealing, screeching or squeaking, have a Firestone Tire and Auto Service Professionals inspect your entire brake system, including your brake rotors. These are all common brake problems on cars and trucks.

At Firestone Complete Auto Care, your brake check is always free. Save yourself time and costly repairs by bringing your car in at the first sign of trouble - your future self will thank you.
