My OE rotors got groovy as soon as I got good pads. Never thought much about it.
there is your problem.I get unusual wear on my OEM rotors. I get grooves, some deep pits, some glazing, and loud squeel (not just squeeks). It's mostly the pits I'm worried about.
I'm wondering if using a different rotor brand, or if going with slotted or cross drilled rotors would help reduce the unusual wear.
I've been using OEM rotors, Hawk HPPlus pads, and r-compound tires.
Is heat simply the issue? or could it be that the rotors are too soft* for this tire/pad combination?
For now I'm considering slotted and/or cross drilled rotors with some ducting.
