Brake Rotor Resurfacing


The Brake System on your Chevrolet Buick GMC car, truck, van, crossover, or SUV was engineered to provide your vehicle with maximum stopping power. Whether you need to slow down on the interstate or short stop to prevent an accident, you will want a good set of rotors to maximize the friction and resistance that the brake system needs to get the job done. If you are at the recommended maintenance interval for Brake Rotor Resurfacing or if you currently have any symptoms of a Brake Rotor defect, then scheduling Brake Rotor Resurfacing Replacement Service as soon as possible is an excellent way to promote powerful braking and maximum passenger safety to your vehicle. Tom Smith Chevrolet Buick GMC is conveniently located in Midland near Penetanguishene & Port McNicoll, Ontario.


Brake rotors are meant to have a perfectly flat surface that meets a perfectly flat brake pad. When brake pads and rotors meet each other with a perfect 180-degree angle, maximum surface area meets to provide you with maximum friction and resistance that ultimately translates into peak brake system performance. When the brake rotors have physical defects on the surface, friction and resistance decrease alongside your brake system’s performance.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms of a Brake Rotor problem, it is an excellent safety decision to schedule Brake Rotor Resurfacing Replacement Service:

  • Unusual noises during brake operation
  • Shimmy, shaking, or vibration while braking
  • Vehicle requiring additional distance to stop
  • Rotor surface is noticeably grooved or cracked
