Brake rotors (aka brake discs) are smooth metal discs that work in conjunction with brake pads to help stop a car. When moving, the brake rotors/discs turn with the wheels. But, when a driver steps on the brakes, pressure is applied and the brake pads come in contact with the rotors. It is the friction between the brake pads and rotors that makes the wheels slow down and stops the car.
Some cars have brake drums instead of brake rotors /discs for the rear wheels. Brake drums work just like brake rotors/discs, except they are shaped like a bucket and work with brake shoes (not pads) to stop a car.
Brake rotors / discs should be replaced when any of the following occur:
No, it is not safe to drive with a brake rotor problem since there will be limited, or no, ability to stop a car, depending on the level of wear and tear for the brake rotors. As the rotors wear out (become thin or warped), they are unable to dissipate the heat caused by the braking system. This will cause the brake fluid to boil and reduce the effectiveness of brake system significantly.
