    I can tell you one to avoid at all costs. I can't remember if it was a Brake Team or Brake Masters shop (one of the chain outfits), but it was over on east Flamingo. A few years ago, I was in a laundromat that shared a parking lot with it one day washing stuff that was too big to do at home. While I was waiting I stepped outside for a smoke.

    As I stood there, one of the knuckleheads came rolling out of the shop to test drive a car he'd just finished working on. Just as he was going by me the driver's side rear wheel came off the car and took off across the lot before hitting a parked van. The drum slammed into the pavement and left a nice gouge until he got it stopped. One of the other idiots came running out with a floor jack so they could hurry up and put it back together before anyone else noticed. Nice job with the lug nuts. I'd say it's a safe bet they never mentioned anything to the car's owner either.

    Some auto parts stores (Oriely Auto, Pepboys) will turn the rotors for $10-$20, sometimes free. A decent pair of brake pads run you $60-$80. A total of $100 to do it yourself in 2 hours OR $200-$300 for some shop to get it done for you by the end of the day. If they have time. Thats jut my .02 and another option you have.:)

    In my sig
    Do them yourself. Take the rotors to autozone to get turned. Most brake places will rip u off.
