Re: Consistently Warped Rotors Driving Me Nuts


Another very common cause of warped rotors is the over-torqueing of the
lugs by the meathead installing the wheels.  If your using a air gun, learn
how to use it.  If your using a breaker bar, learn how to use it. 
Otherwise use a torque wrench.  You will quickly find that the warp in the
rotors will disapear over time.

BTW, if TAP is selling you a big brake kit by way of telling you it will
cure your warped rotors you've been had.  Don't believe the prereq. 17"
wheels are included in that $2200 either.
