Brake rotors, just like all other parts of a vehicle, need to be regularly checked and replaced if faulty. Disc brake rotors are a very important part of the braking system, and as a result are critical to the overall safety and handling characteristics of the vehicle.

In answer to how often do brake rotors need to be replaced, they can last anywhere from 30,000 to 70,000 miles, and sometimes more. A licensed mechanic can evaluate the rotors and advise you on their status. However, this time-frame is dependent on various factors as highlighted below:

  • Style of driving 
  • The weight of the vehicle  
  • Quality of the brake material 
  • Vehicle Use

3 Signs that the Rotors are starting to wear out:

  1. Noisy brakes -- If the rotors are warped (meaning not perfectly flat) or severely worn, they may produce squealing or squeaking sounds. However, the squealing noise could originate from worn brake pads as well. 
  2. Vibrations from the brakes -- Warped or excessively worn rotors may vibrate irregularly that can be felt in the pedal and sometimes through the vehicle’s chassis. Warped rotors may also produce a pulsating that will be felt in the pedal when the brakes are applied. 
  3. Grooves or score marks on the rotor -- Over time, grooves or scoring marks can develop on the rotor from repeated contact with the brake pads, reducing the capacity to slow the vehicle, as well as cause vibration and pulsation that can be felt in the pedal. Generally, scored or grooved rotors require replacement.

Rotors can sometimes be resurfaced, depending on the amount of wear, and only if they are not warped or cracked. When rotors are resurfaced, a mechanic grinds down the surface of the rotors and makes them smooth and flat again. At the least, the rotors may need to be machined, and the pads replaced. At the worst, all of the braking components may need to be replaced. Taking care of problems as soon as you notice them will keep down the cost and the time spent at your auto shop, plus increase driving safety.
