    I recently purchased a set of used front brakes for a vintage Emmick.

    The rotors were made from aluminum.

    I was just wondering, What is special about this aluminum? Is it hardened or coated with something special for wear?

    Should I consider replacing with new iron or steel discs?

    You have to run a specific brake pad with aluminum rotors. Me? I wouldn’t use them.
