Brake pads are the parts within the wheels of an automobile which brake pads squeeze in order to slow the rotation of the wheel and bring the vehicle to a stop. Depending on the type of vehicle, its brake rotors can be made in a variety of materials and designs. Some are made of heavy cast iron, while others may be made with carbon, Kevlar®, or other more specialized materials.

Brake rotors are extremely important to your braking system. Sometimes called brake discs, rotors are what the brake pads clamp onto in order to stop your tires and halt your vehicle. One of the two main types of brake rotors are drilled brake rotors. These types of rotors have holes drilled into them. Slightly less common that carbon rotors are ones made from ceramic materials. Again, the principal advantage in this case is the light weight, as well as low maintenance requirements. They are also strong enough to tolerate high heat, but are significantly more costly than iron.

Have to be aware of is: a small amount of rust is universal, but it is possible for the rotor to rust to such an extent that it needs to be replaced. Warping is perhaps the most common rotor problem. When a rotor becomes warped, excessive heat causes a disproportionate expansion of the braking surface of the rotor. This can lead to vibration in the steering wheel and elsewhere while braking.

the only one who can decide which performance rotor is best for your vehicle is you. You know the type of driving you do on a daily basis and as such you know best about the type of stress you put on your brakes. So you need to choose the brake rotor according to the situation of the trips.
