Raybestos Specialty Rotors are the ultimate solution for noise-prone applications, including truck, medium duty and school bus applications. The vehicle-specific cooling vane configurations and application-specific iron combine to dampen noise and improve brake responsiveness to ensure super smooth and ultra-quiet braking over a longer period of time.
