  • no way that's 15 to a 30 dollar out here in the Netherlands. a mechanic will charge you a minimum of 90 an hour to start with.. then it could be 30 to 40 apiece to finish them... its cheaper to take new ones

  • Lets say i changed the brake pads and did not change the rotors, drove like that for 9 000 km. Now the new pads have adapted to the old rotor. Is it posible to buy a new brake rotor, and trim a milimeter or two from the pads, so the pads have an even surfice? I am asking that because the pads have a lot of meat left on them, so I would trim them ao there is no groves or anything.

    • Of course it depends on if you just resurface it because pads had uneven wear and you don't exceed the minimum thickness

      Teemu UusitaloTeemu Uusitalo6 månader sedan
    • Also turning rotors can be hazardous if you have worn pads and the pistons travel too much, not likely but for sure possible

      Teemu UusitaloTeemu Uusitalo6 månader sedan
    • So to refuse is better just due to rotors already being ruined

      Teemu UusitaloTeemu Uusitalo6 månader sedan
    • Main reason for rotor warp is overtorqued wheel lugs/bolts and a warped rotor is likely to warp again.

  • With most cars rotors are so cheap its a majority of the time cheaper to replace than turn anyway. Fewer and fewer shops turn rotors anymore, and its safer anyway. On some cars it makes more sense to turn them, especially rotors that are harder to find.

  • I have a question, how come the discs aren't perforated to dissipate the heat? Do they only do that with higher performance cars?

    cmorano71cmorano717 månader sedan
  • With today's tolerance there's not much you can turn off on a disc, and price of a new one isn't a fortune these days.

    Joao ResendeJoao Resende7 månader sedan
    • rob b thanks for the info!

      Joao ResendeJoao Resende7 månader sedan
    • Yes. What he used is actually considered a lathe. It is just specialized for brakes and has an attachment to cut both sides at once. A common lathe a machinist would have would cut one side at a time, unless they have an attachment for doing both sides at the same time. Most of the brake lathes are rather light duty and not very accurate compared to a decent lathe. With a regular lathe it often takes more setup time to get it aligned as they are rarely setup for brake rotor work. I have both types of lathes and rarely machine a rotor. And would probably never use my regular lathe as the cast iron is rather dirty and abrasive, and would require covering parts of the lathe along with a good cleanup. About the only reason I would machine a rotor, is if the rotor is fairly new or actually new and not running perfectly true, or I'm changing the pad type. And its on a performance car that might see the benefit. Some rotors are hard to find new that are not a little out of true. Then I might take off a very light cut to true it rather than using tapered shims.

    Bertlins HerbertBertlins Herbert7 månader sedan

    • It's not playing with brakes it's normal to turn rotors that's why they put a minimum machine to thickness on them. On your normal street car it doesn't decrease your braking ability at all with the machine rotor now on a race car or a truck that's hauling 40,000 lb then I worry about it a little more

      sinned96sinned967 månader sedan
  • Only because I like Jared did I watch a video of him turning rotors.

  • Just out of curiosity, would grinding away the lip not be sufficient enough? I don't see the gains out of cutting the whole rotor if there's no damage to it.

  • yes I used to just put new pads on my 83 reliant till i could see the out line of the rotor cooling fins thru the braking surface. ah but with new rotors the pedal was high and braking was solid at that time rotors could come off after wheel removed and new rotor was $20 410 to have them turned so new was the best choice.

  • Turning rotors has never really worked for me. You might get 5000 more miles out but they warp again pretty quickly, plus as others have stated, a shop that'll do it is near impossible to find. I just put brand new ones on when it's time to do brakes.

  • Do parts stores still turn rotors or am I just that old?

    Chris McGeeChris McGee8 månader sedan
  • On-car lathes are superior. Most "warping" (It's thickness variation) is from excessive runout caused by the hat/hub/bearing. An on-car lathe makes the full assembly true, assuming your wheel bearing isn't defective.

    Jacob GroezingerJacob Groezinger8 månader sedan
    • Btw runout(warping)and thickness variation are two different things, rotors can have one without the other or both.

      housesteinernzhousesteinernz7 månader sedan
    • @Todd T&T Automotive Equipment You offer to match machine the rotors, but i bet you dont match machine every set of NEW rotors you fit to your customers cars? Off car machining is the same as on-car as long as you follow correct procedure checking for hub and rotor runout etc. If i can be within oem tolerance for runout with on or off car machining, how can you say one is better then the other?

      housesteinernzhousesteinernz7 månader sedan
    • That's not correct about the on car lathes, or else it would be standard practice to on car machine new rotors once fitted, which never happens. If the car has a runout problem with the hub or wheel bearing replace that part.

  • I have had many rotors turned at my shop and a number of them have come back due to warpage. Ive had to stop turning rotors all together because of the loss of profit. The material isnt what it use to be. I dont know the exacts of the compound, but its definitely not good. I'd lean more towards brand new 100% of the time given the price of rotors nowadays

  • I'm lucky with part prices on my little old car: a set of good quality rotors in the front will cost only 24€, but they are also tiny solid rotors. Way smaller than normal rotors on the rear axle of a new car. Drilled Brembo's are about 58€ for the set. It will help when the car only weigh 780kg or 1720 pounds, parts get cheap :-)

    Franz BernhardFranz Bernhard8 månader sedan
  • Keep in mind that bench lathes are inherently not true and will always machine a small amount of runout into a rotor. This will cause vibration under braking in any performance car or really any car made around or after the year 2000. Use an on-car lathe or replace your rotors for the best results!
