      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?

      Thanks,

      Jeff

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