What Are Brake Rotors?
You are probably familiar with brake pads, but you may be wondering what brake rotors do. Brake rotors are circular metal discs that connect to your wheels. Their purpose is to slow down the turning of your wheels by using friction Ð which is what happens when the brake calipers squeeze your vehicle's brake pads together.
When Should I Replace My Brake Rotors?
Many owner's manuals recommend changing the rotors about once every 70,000 miles. Of course, there are some factors that can impact your brake rotors, such as extreme weather conditions, your driving habits, and how often you drive your GM vehicle. If your steering wheel is vibrating as you press on the brake, your brake rotors may need to be replaced sooner.
