I know this question has been asked before because I conducted a forum search, but what is the definite answer to this question: Do the two screws on the non captive brake rotor serve a purpose? I read on one of the forums that they keep the rotor in place during hard breaking. On other forum it said you should plug those holes once they are removed. Whats the deal? I am going to have my new rims installed and I am concerned about safety.

I don't know if your still looking for reply but those screews are put into the rotor while the car is moving down the assembly line and before the calipers are put on to hold the rotor in place , simply put ,,, some poor bastard would loose a toe if they fell off.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

You can take them off, they're there to line something up during assembly,... can't rememer what it was now.

If you're not 100% convinced do a search on TeamSR

Thanks for the replies. I did a search on team sr and someone wrote that those screws help place less stress on the studs and help with vibration. Is this true?

anti rattle pins or springs are used to help prevent vibration in the braking, and studs are made to hold the weight. The screws are not made out of a strong enough metel to hold weight anyway. hope this is helping you out.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Thanks for the help everyone. I am just going to put the wheels on without the screws and relax about it. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
