That was the original claim by Nissan.I have a 2011 Nissan GTR. When the time comes to replace the pads will I also need to replace the rotors ir is this a rumor?
I have worked on cars and bikes all my life and have always understood that rotors should only be replaced when warped, cracked, or under service limit. I only use my GTR for weekend use. I rarely use the brakes to stop aggressively (my pads are still at 10mm after 11k miles). This being said I beleive I'm being very kind to my rotors now.
What do you guys understand in this matter?
They may not approve of our approach, but it is perfectly safe.
Replace pads ONLY until rotors need replacement. OEM rotors are worthless anywhere but on the street. They crack. Quickly. We recommend aftermarket rotors, but the dealership won't do it for you. You either DIY, or take it to a good shop with lots of brake experience.
