How Do Brake Rotors Work?

Brake rotors are an important component in your vehicle’s braking system and serve a critical purpose in helping your car slow or come to a sudden stop when you engage the brake pedal. Also called brake discs, rotors are what the brake pads clamp down on to stop the wheels from spinning. If you’ve ever seen a bicycle brake in action, where two rubber pads rub against the wheel rim creating friction which slows the tire, then you can imagine how the rotors and pads work together to stop your vehicle.
