Where to Get Rotors Turned: 9 Places That Turn Rotors Listed

Short Answer: There are several nationwide auto shops that will turn rotors, including Goodyear, Midas, O’Reilly Auto Parts, and Pep Boys. The cost for getting your rotors turned can range from $10 per rotor to more than $200 total, depending on where you get them done and what other brake services your car needs. See below for the list of auto care centers that turn rotors, including the expected cost and service time.

Where to Get Rotors Turned

Several national auto service chains offer rotor turning — also called rotor resurfacing — as an alternative to rotor replacement. When you hit the brakes in your car, the brake pads press against the rotors and create friction that slows wheel rotation and then stops the vehicle. Both pads and rotors become worn down with use.

Depending on the type of vehicle you own, you may be able to extend the life of your brakes by having the rotors turned, making the surfaces smooth and even. It’s important to note that manufacturers have minimum thickness guidelines for rotors, and auto repair shops are unable to resurface rotors if the process would bring them below the recommended minimum thickness.

Below, we list the auto shops and repair centers that turn rotors. We spoke with technicians shop locations to confirm the details of the service. Keep in mind that prices vary, and rotor resurfacing tends to be less expensive at auto parts retailers than at auto repair centers. For additional options, you can contact your local garage or mechanic and ask if it offers rotor turning.
