The brake rotors are discs of metal positioned on axles of the vehicle behind each wheel, working in conjunction with the entire disc brake system to provide deceleration through friction between materials. The brake system consists of calipers with brake pads inside, which squeeze the brake rotor once the brake pedal is pressed, through a hydraulic system. Typically made of grey iron, high-performance cars can also come with ceramic composite or even carbon-ceramic brakes. OEM brake rotors are a fundamental part of any vehicle and should be looked after and replaced when necessary. Failure to do so can result in reduced brake functionality or even complete loss of brakes, which can result in serious accidents. The first symptom that you should replace a disc rotor on your Lexus is vibration coming from the brake system once the brake pedal is pressed. Vibration can be felt through the pedal as well as the steering wheel, while the distinct noise comes as a result of the brake pad coming in contact with the brake rotor. Using genuine parts straight from the factory is your best bet, as the materials used are best suited to your vehicle.
