How much does it cost to get rotors turned?
The cost for turning a rotor runs anywhere from $15 to $25 per rotor. Purchasing new rotors typically will cost from $20-$30 per rotor and of course you will have a lot less problemsand a much longer rotor and brake pad life span.
Do auto parts stores turn rotors?
It typically costs around $10 to $15 to resurface rotors in most auto parts stores. After enough resurfacing jobs, it will be more cost-effective to buy new rotors. If you wish to purchase a sander, this project’s cost can go up to around $50. However, that $50 is an investment you can use for other projects.
Does O’Reilly resurface rotors?
Drum & Rotor Resurfacing
Most O’Reilly Auto Parts locations can resurface your vehicle’s drums and rotors if they measure within specs and aren’t showing signs of extreme wear. Surface finish is crucial to proper vehicle braking and pad life and should always be part of a complete brake job.
Does NAPA Auto Parts turn rotors?
Depending on your local NAPA Auto Parts store or NAPA AutoCare, these machines may still be available for brake rotor turning and flywheel turning. It can happen to anyone, put off a brake job fore even a week and you can end up with pads that look like this.
Are my rotors warped?
If you notice your steering wheel or brake pedal wobble when you apply the brakes to slow down or stop, chances are your rotors are warped. If the warp isn’t too bad, you might not really notice the shaking. If the warp is serious, you’ll definitely feel the vibration.
How long do rotors last on a vehicle?
Your rotors are one of the most durable parts of your car, but the above factors can shorten their lifespan. Expect your rotors to last anywhere from 30,000-70,000 miles depending on the above factors.
Can you turn rotors without replacing pads?
Yes, but it depends on the condition of your brake rotors. If they aren’t damaged or thinned beyond the discard thickness, you can definitely change just the worn brake pads.
Is it cheaper to resurface or replace rotors?
Cost: It is sometimes cheaper to replace the rotor than to resurface the rotor. You can get after-market brake rotors for a fairly low price, making it more cost-effective than either spending time doing the labor of resurfacing yourself or hiring and paying someone else to resurface your rotors.

Can you turn solid rotors?
Resurfacing the rotors on the vehicle with an on-car lathe can virtually eliminate runout problems, but it requires investing in an on-car lathe. Some installers tell us it’s cheaper and easier just to replace the rotors. But if the runout is in the hub, new rotors won’t make any difference!
Do you have to turn both rotors?
Even if one side is “good enough” it is wise to replace both brake rotors at the same time to maintain even braking as any difference in rotor thickness will cause the brakes to pull to one side.
