    Default Are these rotors useable/safe?

    I was just about to put my wheels on and took a look at my rotors. 3 of the 4 have these marks on them. Are these cracks, chatter marks, or just heat stress? Are these still usable?

    Thanks
    Marty

    Default Glazing

    That is called glazing. if you sand that surface off, the rotors will be fine., if they have not warped as a result of being over heated.

    Thanks! I've always heard of glazing but was never sure what it actually looked like
