Turns out you should probably spend more than $37 on brake rotors. The “Brake Best” rotors my buddy bought to replace the rusted out crap on my former 2003 Honda that we affectionately named “Ann” after the forgettable character in Arrested Development turned out to be complete garbage. I’ve never seen a new rotor do this so soon after installation! I’m wondering if the caliper/piston is actually seized or something, but I guess it’s back to O’Reilly for this guy! Seriously think he had less than 50 miles on it when it failed so spectacularly.
Buy mid-grade folks, especially on the parts that count!
