Noticed this out of the blue yesterday as I noticed the brake dust on the inside of this specific wheel (Pass side rear) was worse than the rest of the wheels.



This obviously annoys me since I'm a little OCD, and part of my freaking brake is missing....

Do you think if I bring it to a dealer they are going to push back and say its Cosmetic? No vibration issues (Albeit I could always say there is...)

Would you push for a new rotor if they try that if you were in my position?

Honestly curious what your expectations would be.

It can't possibly be designed this way.... Right?

Just because it's not on the internet. Doesn't mean it's not true.

Here's a rotor fresh out of a box for a 3500.

Opened just for you.



It's a balance cut!

Find something else to be OCD about.

Looking at the picture again I can see the inside of both are the same like that.

I feel educated, No need to be mean about it!

how would that have accidentally been made?

does it really have more dust or is that just in your head?

don't worry about it, all is good.

Sorry if I came off a bit brash. I've been in this field for 15 years and I hate when someone tells me they read it on the internet. Yes the net is a good tool, but it doesn't beat knowledge and experience of being a tech.

I have a buddy who always asks me questions, he doesn't like my answer then he asks another and then tells me I was right. No fucking shit I'm right, who does this for a living, I always wanna knock his teeth out.

It just seems like something that a normal consumer would see and might stop and think 'that doesn't look quite right', and to not find it under some good old googling is why it brought me pause.

Sounds like they would laugh me out of the service bay :jg:

That reminds me of years ago when cars and trucks had real oil PSI gauges and not dummy ones.

Had one person tell me something is wrong with their s10, I asked what it was and they told me the oil PSI is going up and down. Told them it was supposed to do that. They insisted I was wrong, and went to a dealer got popped for $100 diag to be told no issue found. They bitched me out because they wouldn't listen to me.

Now because of that happening all the time most automobiles have dummy gauges.
