Best Of Reddit: Bad Brakes

Every so often, we find the worst possible cases of brake rotor and pad delamination on Reddit. These posts are all submitted anonymously, and are usually derived from mechanics, shop owners or just plain DIYers.

This week, we have four select photos that absolutely scream brake failure. Some of them you’ll wonder how they even made it in to the shop!
