Re: New Brake Pads Grinding Rotors HELP

Welcome to the forum!

Can you describe how the pads are grinding the rotor a bit more? Did you by chance put a pad in backwards? Is it just the far inside or far outside circumference of the braking surface that is grinding? Is it a groove around the entire diameter of the rotor? Were the rotors machined/turned as part of the brake job? Was the grinding noise there before you did the brakes?
