Your brake pads push against your rotors to slow down your wheels. For this to happen smoothly, your brake pads and rotors need to be in good shape. Brake pads can be easily replaced, but brake rotors don’t always need to be replaced when they’ve been scratched or damaged over time. Rotors can be resurfaced, which allows them to continue to function like they should for longer, and we provide that resurfacing for you at HGreg INFINITI® of Monrovia.
With brake rotors, the key to proper functioning is a smooth surface. When the rotor gets old, it loses that smoothness, so resurfacing is a method of restoring that smoothness on the rotor. Resurfacing involves machining down the surface of the rotor until it is smooth once more, which removes the rough surface and grinds it into a smooth, flat surface. Once the machining is done, your rotor should be smooth again, giving your brake pads a good surface to push against to provide friction for the brakes.
Brake rotors are made of metal, making them good candidates for resurfacing, but whether or not you can resurface your rotors depends mainly on how worn and thick the rotor is. Thin rotors might not be able to handle resurfacing without compromising the integrity of the rotor, and we want to ensure your brakes are always in excellent condition to respond to the force of your foot on the brake. We’ll let you know if your rotors are thick enough to resurface and if the job can be done correctly for your car.
The surface of your rotors can be affected by many different things, including debris, corrosion, warping, and other problems. These all change the rotor surface from the smooth surface they need to be to a rough surface that your brake pads cannot push against firmly. Rough rotors will degrade your brake pads faster than normal and could also cause vibration or even noise when you brake. Resurfacing your rotors helps them work the way they should with your brake pads.
