Are Coated Rotors Worth the Extra Money?

Are coated rotors worth it?

The primary purpose of a brake rotor is to slow your vehicle. The friction created by the pads against the rotors help to stop car movement in emergency situations and when you want to park.

The reason for coating rotors is to prevent rust from forming on the rotor. If rust is allowed to form, it will eat away at the metal and cause chunks of material to break off. 

While coated rotors do cost an additional amount, they are more durable and will last longer than uncoated rotors. If you looking to spend less money on replacement parts in the long run, come to Paul Campanella's Auto and Tire Center and have us coat your rotors.
