Brake Rotors

Why change auto brake rotors

Tens of thousands of miles of driving in all types of weather conditions is hard on brakes. And while drivers expect their vehicle's disc brake pads to wear out over time, what they don't always realize is that their vehicle's disc brake rotors are wearing out too.

The pressure and heat generated by the brake pads rubbing against the brake rotor combined with the dirt and debris that gets between them wears away metal, slowly removing the material that was designed to act as a heat sink to maintain braking performance and efficiency.

Once brake rotors have worn to their minimum thickness it's time to replace them along with the brake pads .

Brembo brake rotors

Brembo brake rotors is a worldwide leader in the engineering, development and production of braking systems and components for automobiles, motorcycles and commercial vehicles in the Original Equipment, Aftermarket, Racing and High Performance market segments.

Brembo Brake Rotors features

Starting with a casting from a Brembo foundry that assures uniform thickness, Brembo OE Replacement Brake Rotors are machined to exacting tolerances (the rotor run-out tolerance is only 0.0025", about half of the industry norm), feature a braking surface finish (ground or fine turned) compatible with the vehicle's OE specifications and are electronically balanced to minimize the possibility of vibration.

Brembo Brake Rotors Quality

Brembo offers its OE Replacement Rotors with the same levels of quality, technology and performance that have earned it Dodge Viper, Ferrari, Ford Mustang Cobra and Mercedes-Benz OEM fitments. All Brembo OE Replacement Brake Rotors are manufactured under QS-9000 and ISO 9001 certifications to ensure the highest level of quality. Brembo brake rotors offer applications for most every automobile domestic to import, compact car to luxury SUV.

Zimmermann Ventilated Sport Brake Rotors / Discs

Otto Zimmermann GmbH

Otto Zimmermann GmbH had been developing and producing high quality motor vehicle components for the car manufacturers and spare parts market. Moving to a new location in Sinsheim in 1990 became a landmark for Otto Zimmermann GmbH. To date Otto Zimmermann GmbH has increased the facilities including production and storage space to cover 11.000 square meters.

The production programme includes more than 1000 varied brake and engine components that are marketed and exported via the trade wholesalers to 60 different countries. Zimmermann long-term aim is to have a cost effective and extensive share in all the motor vehicle markets worldwide. In the year 2000 the founding of the Otto Zimmermann Truck GmbH enables the trading partners in the commercial vehicles division to profit from an individual marketing concept.

The Zimmermann ventilated sport brake rotor/disc was developed using the experience gained in motor sports. All sport brake discs are made out of high quality heat resistant material. In conjunction with the ventilated brake disc surface Zimmermann sport brake rotor/disc forms an optimal braking system.

The Zimmermann Know-How was achieved through experience gained in racing sport. The technology is a guarantee for your safety and the efficiency of the brake system.

All our Zimmermann sport brake rotors/discs were put through extensive trials on the Hockenheim Ring and as sole German manufacturer we guarantee under extreme conditions with more than 250 references from the ABE of RW TUV.

For more than 50 years Zimmermann has been delivering tested and tried brake and engine components to well-known car-manufacturers and the spare parts market. The all-round programme enables Zimmermann to offer the high quality suitable disc brake drum for practically every vehicle on the market.

Permanent investments in measuring instruments, test facilities and qualified workers are obligatory for us and the first essential for a continual improvement process at Zimmermann. Starting from the model and the casting of the disc brake rotors cast iron parts to the finished product all quality relevant details are recorded and analyzed and flow into the continual quality improvement treasurer in all manufacturing process.

The wear holes of a Zimmermann sport brake rotors/discs are equipped with oversized holes. Apart from the specific braking advantages the wear hole has a further advantage. It is so constructed that one can continually observe when the minimal parallelism has been reached. When the wear hole is no longer visible through the bore it is necessary to change the brake rotor/disc because it is not within the tolerance.

Zimmermann sport brake rotors/discs are compatible with OEM brake systems.
