The Brake Rotor is a part of your car's braking system against which the brake pads press, to stop or slow down the vehicle. It spins along with the wheels and is bolted to the wheel's axle with lug nuts. The Brake Rotor is usually made of steel. When the brake pedal is pressed, the hydraulic fluid passes through the brake master cylinder and reaches the brake pads. The pressurized fluid causes the brake pads to press against the rotor. This action creates friction, which makes the wheels slow down or stop.
There are two kinds of high-performance Brake Rotors: drilled and slotted. Drilled Brake Rotors have holes drilled in them and slotted Brake Rotors have slots carved into the rotor's metal surface. They are so designed to allow heat, gas and water quickly move away from their surface.
Common symptoms of a worn Brake Rotor may include wobbly braking due to a loss in the rotor's thickness, and a longer stopping distance. A warped or lightweight rotor creates a pulsating sensation while pressing the brake pedal. If you experience any of the symptoms mentioned above, you should consider inspecting the Brake Rotor and replace it, if required.
