BMW 528i front Balo rotors warped after only 18K
My saga of steering wheel shaking when braking is finally over. It's as almost I refused to believe that Balo could warp, that's how much I trusted them. Sure enough after checking again, they were warped pretty badly.
Instead of trying to resurface them, I've got set of Zimmerman Coat Z rotors and Pagid pads and that solved the problem. I know that plenty here advocating Balo and I was one of them, but I'm done with them. On the other hand, I've done several brake jobs using Zimm. Coat Z and nobody complained yet.
We'll see what happens.
