What You Need To Know About Brake Discs


Over time, brake pads and discs inevitably wear and, as a result, no longer perform to the required standard putting the driver and passengers at risk. Replacing a car brake disc (sometimes referred to as a brake rotor) is not negotiable. This can be identified as part of your regular service or if you feel that the car is not as responsive when braking it is worth getting them checked.

Brake discs are one component of the vehicle’s braking system. When braking you apply pressure onto the brake pads which then is applied onto the discs. These are what slow your vehicle down or bring the vehicle to a standstill, hence its importance for regular service. One of the key signs of there being an issue with the brake discs is a shuddering movement when braking. Some brake discs can become lipped or warped which will require them to be replaced.

If you wish to change or have the brake discs checked we would recommend visiting a local garage or dealership. Although they will be checked as part of your vehicles yearly MOT. If your brakes begin to make any noise at all, please take the vehicle to be checked ASAP.

Frequently Asked Questions



What are the different brake discs available?
Brake discs may be referred to being a solid unit, this is because they will be cast as one unit. There is a ventilated brake disc, this is cast as one unit similar to the solid unit however it has vents between the 2 braking surfaces. This is to allow for heat to disperse and cool down. Some of the brake discs stocked may also be a disc with bearing and ABS ring. This is a complete disc, hub bearing and an anti-lock braking ring. The ABS feature on vehicles allows for the vehicle to maintain contact with the surface, reducing the risk of skidding etc.
The product specification will specify whether the discs are full units or vented, as well as they have the ABS function. The specification will also state the measurements of the brake discs and what vehicle the product should fit.
