If you have noticed brake system problems on your luxury vehicle, your first inclination will likely be to check the brake pads for wear and tear. This is a natural thought process, as brake pads are often the culprit of degradation in brake performance. However, you should not count out the possibility that your Mercedes SLK320 Brake Rotors are the cause of your reduced stopping power.
An excellent indicator that your Mercedes SLK320 Brake Rotors have been damaged is if your brake pedal and/or steering wheel vibrates when you apply the brakes. This is likely the outcome of two possible problems, both of which stem from faulty brake rotors.
The first problem is that your brake rotor has become warped. Warping occurs when excessive heat causes the rotor to bend so that it is no longer flat. This reduces the ability of the brake pads to grip the rotor, which causes the inconsistent vibrating. The second problem could be that the brake pad material has been unevenly deposited on the rotor. This also reduces the ability of the pads to grip the rotor and usually occurs due to excessive hard braking. In either case, you’ll be presented with two options for resolving the issue. To get your brake system back in working order, you can either have the brake rotors refinished or you can purchase new rotors. As refinishing can reduce the strength of your rotors, and might even cost as much as simply getting new ones, you may as well just buy some new rotors.Get these OEM-quality Mercedes SLK320 Brake Rotors for maximum performance and incredibly reliable braking.
