Don't Fix What Aint Broke

This is one of my "must do's" before March.

Seems that no one turns rotors anymore. They only place I found near me (Brandermill / Southside) was Merchants and they wanted $50 / rotor. Give me a break, set up and walk-away and they are trying to charge that much?

They are decent drilled rotors, just want to get the glazing off.

Thanks

Honda and Miata rotors are only like $20-$30ea so I've never turned a set, but you could try Napa over on Southlake.

Try any Oreillys autoparts store.  They will turn them too.  I do not remember the cost but I know it was inexspensive because I used them and I am very frugal! Lol!

I've used Cloverleaf Tire and Auto on Turner road near Midlothian Turnpike.  $20 bucks and only took him about an hour to do 2 rotors

Thanks, I have a set of rotors I'm going to use as a backup set for track days! Guess I know where I"m bringing them.

Don't turn your rotors unless they're actually warped, especially for track use.  The reduced mass doesn't handle heat as well.  Probably not as much an issue on a Corvette as it is on any one of my cars, which all have marginally acceptable brakes.  I'd be tempted to try some of the $20 rotors that RockAuto has for your Corvette (or $40 if you've got the Z51 package).

Thanks for the tip, yea so I'll probably get a cheap set of rotors and pads just for use in emergencies.
Not that I'm going to do alot of track days (one maybe two a year)
