we’re going to talk a little bit about the way your brakes fail when they start to wear out. From the factory your vehicle’s brake pads are anywhere from five-to-10 millimeters thick.
One of the least inspected braking systems on your vehicle is typically the parking brake. As 90 percent of vehicles sold in North America come equipped with automatic transmissions, the majority of us don’t even use our parking brake anymore because we don’t think we need to.
The next brake rotor design we’re gonna look at is what we call a dual-plane or a vented rotor.
Now, this rotor has two separate sides with a slot between them that has angled vents, so as it rotates, air flow can cool the rotor much more efficiently.
The first brake rotor design that we’re going to look at is the original single-plane rotor. Now the design of this is pretty basic. In this case it has five bolt holes where it will slide on to the hub of the vehicle.
Hi there. I’m Saul here at Saul’s Automotive, and we’re gonna take a look today at a slightly more heavy duty for a medium to heavy duty truck or van, brake rotor, and braking capsulated hub design.
