    None, for now
    I have a 2012 double cab 4 banger. It has 8k on it and the rotors have been replaced due to the first ones were turned twice. Well, the rotors need to be turned again. Has anyone else had issues with their rotors?
    This trip to the dealer is getting old

    Maybe you are overheating your brakes?

    I hate to be the guy to say it, but some people think they are good drivers, when in reality they ride their brakes, constantly stop abruptly etc.

    ^^^ What he said. Also, if you are little harder on your brakes, it's imperative to have the proper lug nut torque. Overheating rotors with over-tightened lug nuts is a recipe for warpage. Don't trust the dealer to properly torque the lug nuts. Always check it yourself.

    Good call on the wheel torque.

    BTW. if you havent figured it out already, "turning" the rotors only lasts temporarily. At my shop, if somone comes in with a brake pulsation, we replace the rotors no question. we got rid of our lathe. Be easy on the brakes, give them time to cool while going down hills. dont ride them. Get new rotors and torque the wheels properly with a calibrated torque wrench. you shouldnt have any problems :thumbsup:

    Wow, when I was doing brakes for a living we always put new rotors on the lathe to make damn sure they were true. About 20% were not.
