Brake question

You guys usually change the rotors while you changing the brake pad or just get the rotor resurface? And is there any reputable shop can get the rotor resurface

"Turning" rotors is not that common anymore. Just check the surface of the rotor, likely it is fine as modern pads are not that hard on rotors. Measure the thickness of the rotors, that is more important as thin rotors can warp when you least want them to under heavy braking.

I normally change rotors every second set of pads, yet check and measure your rotors to be sure.
