The truth about bedding in new rotors
I just replaced front pads and rotors with Everwear Frontline rotors and Everwear Premium Ceramic pads. Rotors did not come with a bedding or breaking in procedure and I don't see one on Advance Auto's website. Searching on this is very confusing ... first site says to do three moderately hard stops from 45 mph and then 8-10 hard decelerations from 60 to 15 and get the rotors very hot & lay down a layer of pad material. The next link on bedding new rotors said the proper thing to do is to drive very easy during the first 1,000 miles and do not get them very hot during that period (avoid any hard stops/decelerations if you can help it). This advice seems exactly opposite. What's the truth? Also, if I do need to do a 'proper bedding' or breaking in procedure, how imperative is it that I do it immediately after? I need to drive the truck this afternoon and doubt I'll have many answers on here that soon.
