Advance Auto Parts Inc. recently introduced CARQUEST Platinum Painted Rotors, an exclusive line of premium rotors designed to meet commercial shops’ need for quality replacement parts in a complete brake program. CARQUEST Platinum Painted Rotors have been tested to ensure rust and corrosion protection, and deliver a cost-efficient and customer-friendly alternative to coated rotors, the company says.

“The launch of our CARQUEST Platinum Painted Rotors line will give technicians and shop owners a quality product they can trust when servicing their customers’ vehicles,” said Bob Cushing, executive vice president, Commercial at Advance. “We are proud to partner with shops and garages across North America to provide a total solution for all their brake needs, and see painted rotors as a key component of Advance’s brake program in the future.”

OE manufacturers are trending to open wheel design and rotors that feature some form of protection. Advance says CARQUEST Platinum Painted Rotors align with these OE strategies, delivering a high-performing rotor product that is visually appealing to drivers. The CARQUEST painted rotors underwent more than 120 hours of salt-spray testing for rust and corrosion protection and feature a painted hat and edge plate design that will appeal to customers familiar with OE painted rotors.

CARQUEST Platinum Painted Rotors are currently being rolled out to Advance and CARQUEST locations and customers throughout the United States, with availability in Canada beginning in early 2017. A total of 374 part numbers will be offered in the initial rollout, applicable for vehicle model years 2013 and later.
