Default 95 front rotors.

Hi
I have a 1995 CAMRY 4.
Its got 95K miles on it.
I wondered if it was time to change the front rotors.

1 Is it worth while getting them reground.

2 Is it as well to buy genuine TOYOTA rotors.

3 Or good enough to go 3rd party discs. If so who's is worth buying in
the UK

you should of changed out your rotors a long time ago.

Yes, good aftermarket rotors is fine. I'd recommend looking at OEM
replacement pads though. Every aftermarket pad I ever bought ending
up squealing like the dickens.

01dynas another missinformed post. If you take the rotors to be cut
the shop will only cut them if there is enough metal left, they
measure it, dynaflop. If your brakes have been cut a few times its
likely there is not enough metal. People that dive all highway miles
and brake easily have less wear on rotors. After market is alot
cheaper than toys overpriced rotors. For electric components and
thermostat use Toyota stuff

...are you naturally this stump stupid or are you on some kind of
prescription drug? At nearly 100k miles, don't even bother seeing if
they can be cut...highway miles or not.

What part of "you should of changed your rotors a long time ago"
eludes you?

The OP (and everyone else with average IQ or better), would be well
advised to ignore ransley, he's the one that's
not only misinformed but woefully irresponsible in his
recommendations.

What part of you dont know shit dont you understand, you are a true

he is, I don't know what does.

OK give us all 1 reason to "need" to replace rotors, [this will be
funny] rember they dont Oxidise or deteriorate from day 1 like all the
rubber on your car does. Hey dynaflop did you ever get your rotors
measured with a digital Micrometer! , Hint, thats whats is done before
cutting rotors.

OOOPs,

Well I only asked LOL.

My own opinion on the rotas was.
as Toyota charge circa GB£90 per hour for time.
The car would be with them say a day.
They are 15 miles from my home.
It would be maybe more expensive to have them reground than replace them
myelf.
I understand the "thickness issue"

I have just had a UK MOT done on the car 3 weeks ago and it passed no
problem.

But at 13 years old last week ( I purchased it new )
It seemed like a place that maybe needed replaced.

I will ring around tomorrow and find out rotor prices.
I could of course pull one off and inspect first.
Maybe that's the tact to take.

I have a digital micrometer.
And Haynes list the minimum thickness.

I will report back.

Thanks guys

Johnny UK.

If its your 3rd brake set they might be to thin, no mechanic will cut
past stated minimums or he is liable if they fail, type of brake pad,
driving style and where you drive determine rotor life, years dont
matter unless there is excessive rust, but by then the body wil be
gone. I have antique cars from the 40s and 50s with low miles, dont
think for one minute people who own and drive and race antiques
replace rotors by AGE as dynamop contends is necessary. People with
antiques would be looking in the junkyard anyway, so Dynadumb is just
posting his-her crap-stupidity as usual. In the UK you have old car
rallys, - races, where replacements for most everything the cars need
are not new, but the cars a fully safe to race and heat the brakes to
smokin red hot. Its all in the thickness of rotor.

Here is what to worry about, in the US where we salt roads for 6
months of the year brake lines, and fuel lines last 10 years, have
those inspected and if there is rust, replace them. I couldn`t stop
one winter night because by brake line went, I used my emergency brake
to drive 1 hr home in a snow storm and had an accident. Make sure your
emergency brake is working. Hoses, belts, all Oxidise, rubber gets
hard and brittle, if they are original its time to replace them, the
easiest way to ruin a motor is loose a hose. If your car has visable
rust then fuel and brake lines may be bad.
