Brake Wear and Brake Rotor Machining

Neil Corstorphan Motors mechanics can inspect your brakes and determine the cause for your brake issues efficiently. If you haven't inspected all four wheel brakes recently, usually front brakes are wearing thin and are due for a replacement. The rear brakes tend to last longer as the ones in front, which do most of the braking.

Your brake rotors can be either machined to become smooth -or- replaced with new brake rotors for factory fresh experience. Many small car brake rotors do not require a huge cash payment, so replacing them might be a smarter long term investment than polishing or "truing" the brake rotors. During a brake rotor machining a layer of metal is removed and this can cause the rotor to heat up faster, loose the smoothness faster and become warped - this may be the cause for brake vibration or wobbling when you attempt to stop your vehicle. This rotor warping issue not so noticeable on trucks with heavy duty brake rotors and they can usualy be machined once.
