Hi,

Just the other day on my way to the L.A. Auto show, I was cruising at about 80 MPH on the freeway. On my exit, I had to slow down to 15. So when I applied the brakes, my car and my steering wheel gave a very noticeable shake and vibration that just took me by surprise. I have had crossdrilled rotors installed on my car for about 4 months along with 17x7.5 Evo IIs on 215/40/17 and 215/45/17 rubber front and rear respectively. Is there anyway that I can fix this vibration problem? Please Help!

Brake vibration = warped rotors! Fronts are most likely, With this large size tire combo I'm sure it won't be the last time.

I once replaced the rotors on my car and experience the same problem. I removed the rotors and had them turned down. Even though they were new they were not true. It solved the problem.

Thanks for all your help guys. I wish I didn't have to take off the aftermarket rotors. I love their stopping power, especially when I'm driving to school on the 210 freeway here in S. Kali. Well, I'll see what I can do.
