Hi Everyone,

I bought my K5 Gt-line in Jan and I’m at 8700 miles and my wheel is already starting to shake when I brake at 60+. I assume its my rotors from experience but with the car being so new I’m a little baffled as to why they will fail so early. Has anyone else had these issues?

Heat Stress can happen at any age on rotors, especially now, as they aren't made to a thicker spec than they used to be. A lot of rotors these days are barely made above Discard Spec as most people replace everything when they do brake jobs.

My car is actually in the shop right now for new front rotors, failed at 17k. $400 for the same exact new rotors is ridiculous when they don't last long
