Re: Am I going to have problems with used rotors?? (W_Jetta)

Unless the rotors have been warped..uneven or over torquing lug nuts for instance..they should be OK with only 9000 miles on em...you mighgt want to have em just skim turned a little to make sure the're as even as possible B4 you mount em. When installing tires you must tighten lugs in small incriements..say all to 30 ft lb, 60 ft lb, then final torque of 90 ft lbs. If you just crank em down one at a time to final torque you stand a good chance of warpin the rotor and maybe even crackin an alloy wheel!

Re: Am I going to have problems with used rotors?? (spitpilot)

the rotor on my car currently only have about 5000miles, but its warped.
I heard 04 r32 rotors are not turnable and not recommand on machining.
thats why I was going to buy a good used set to replace.
