Research on Brake Rotors for BMW 550i
The BMW 5 series is thought of as a perfect benchmark for premium sport sedans. The 5 series has for years offered a good combination of performance, luxury and a spacious interior. Motoring enthusiasts hold this vehicle in high regard for its innovative technology and refined style. It employs a 4 wheel ABS braking system and brake rotors are part and parcel of this system.
The BMW brake rotors are in no way special compared to all the other rotors. Brake rotors also commonly referred to as brake discs are made of cast iron and are attached to the wheels. During braking the brake pads clamp on the rotors causing the wheel to stop spinning. Rotors vary from vehicle to vehicle they may be smooth solid rotors or they can have grooves. High performance vehicles make use of drilled rotors. Because of the constant pressure and friction exerted on rotors they tend to wear out very quickly and unevenly and are in constant need of resurfacing and eventually will need to be replaced.
Problems with BMW brakes and rotors
If you experience a squealing high pitched noise when you apply the brakes chances are that your rotors could be the culprit. A fading brake pedal is also a sign that there could be a leak within the system. Pulling of your vehicle is another very common indicator; when your vehicle pulls to one side it indicates that your brake pads have worn out unevenly or there could be foreign matter in your brake fluid. Grinding or growling noises are an indicator that your brake pads are completely worn out and they are scratching or scoring the rotors. A pulsating feeling felt on the steering and pedal when you apply the brakes; indicates that you have a problem with the front brakes. If you get the feeling in the seat and pedal; your rear brakes need to be checked.

What causes a brake rotor to warp?
A brake rotor is said to be warped when it has an uneven surface. In most cases warped rotors are caused by overheating. For instance if your back brakes aren't working, your front brakes will be overworked resulting to overheating. Malfunctioning shocks can also cause rotor damage due to a shift of excessive weight. Your driving habits will also greatly affect your braking system, for instance driving in hilly terrain or constantly being in traffic will take a great toll on your braking system. An installed wheel that's not torqued up properly will also result to rotor damage.
