2008 brake keep the rotors or replace.

I have 110,000 miles on the original rotors and 2nd set of oem pads. Time to replace the pads, rotor are not warped or grooved. Should I put another set of oem pads on and leave the rotors alone ? I haul a 2500 lb. Slide on camper ( air bags) and tow 32 ' 10,000 lb boat.

There should be a minimum thickness stamped on the edge, if they are close or below that get new ones.

They well within the limits, I think I will just replace the pads. I never owned anything that had rotors that lasted this long.

Re: 2008 brake keep the rotors or replace.

I would recommend new "slotted" only rotor (don't get drilled rotors) from Rockauto.com and their severe carbon metallic pads for extra stopping power while towing. I did this on my '07 Tundra and love the way the brakes stop while towing my near 3K boat that has no brakes on the trailer.

Have the rotors turned on a lathe first, then see if they still come in to spec thickness. Stay with OEM rotors if you need to replace them. Cross-drilled and slotted rotors failed to provide me with adequate stopping power while towing 31' travel trailer of 9,500 lbs.
