Enclosed are the pictures of friction area on the rear rotors. Now, with the new wheels I am noticing more of the rotor exposed, but what has me alarmed is that the center of the rotor isn't being touched by the pad. Rotors turned and pads replaced about a month ago, there are only 2 conclusions for the rust ring to be so thick that I can come up with. One is that the pads are two small, the other is when they turned the rotor they may have gone over a painted/finishes surface thus exposed more metal to open air rust. Can anyone confirm on their own brakes if this is what theirs looks like, a picture would be cool too...


Thanks!

I think I'm missing something here. The rust looks like it's on spots that the pad doesn't cover. Are you just asking if anyone else has rust like this in this pattern?

Yeah pretty much. I never noticed it before with the different wheels. Would seem that that area might have been painted based on the hub area of the rotor itself. I'm thinking when they did the resurfacing maybe they just went to far in, so now that area is exposed to the elements, and I am just seeing more rust then im used to. No biggie if that's the case, I just wanted to be sure I didn't somehow get smaller pads that actually fit in the caliper...you know, like for another Kia like a Soul, same basic setup, just smaller friction surface or something crazy.
