Solid or Vented – Which Brake Rotor Type Do You Need?

Which type of brake rotors do you need, solid or vented? When selecting your new rotors, you’ll want to be certain if you’re getting the correct type for your vehicle. You can see the difference while looking at the side of the rotor.

Certain vehicle models can have either type, even within the same year. Some can have either solid or vented on the rear wheels. To be certain check out the rotors currently on the vehicle.

You’ll need to order the same type you find already on your vehicle.
