AYRES Muffler Brake and Alignment Repairs Can Resurface Your Rotors

Here is a video showing part of the process of “truing” or resurfacing a customer’s rotors. An annoying shacking or vibration will happen if your rotors have worn improperly and are no longer even. Many things can cause uneven wear including a hard spot or dirt.

Here is what the rotors look like after being properly resurfaced. As you can see, there are no dark patches or signs of dirt-the entire rotor has a clean shiny look to it.
