The brake rotors on your Toyota vehicle are what your vehicle's brake pads clamp onto, which stops your wheels from spinning. Rotors typically last anywhere between 30,000 to 70,000 miles. A brake rotor is a round metallic component with a machined surface that is attached to the wheel hub on your vehicle. If you look through the spokes of your wheel and see a shiny metal disc, that's your brake rotor. Essentially the job of a brake rotor is to absorb and dissipate heat energy every time you use your brakes. The most common reason a brake rotor isn't usable any more is wear and tear. Replacement varies by your driving style and the kind of brake pads that you use. Brake rotors are subject to wear and tear every time you brake while driving your vehicle. Choosing to use certified OEM brake pads are a good choice because they are some of the best and they will help your brake rotors stay in better condition for longer. Some signs of well-worn rotors are squeaking sounds. Extremely well worn rotors will make more of a scraping noise. By changing the brake pads on your Toyota vehicle and keeping your brakes well maintained you will often extend the life of your brake rotors.
