As Your Mechanic and Car and Driver explain, brake rotors are eventually worn away over time. Once they get too thin, it’s time for a replacement. But, if the rotors have severe scratching and scarring, or there’s a noticeably raised outer-lip on the rotors, that’s a symptom of warping.
What happens when you put new brake pads on bad rotors?
If new brake pads are put onto a vehicle with damaged rotors, the pad will not properly contact the rotor surface which will reduce the vehicle’s stopping ability.
