    Is this something to worry about? (Pics)

    Hi all got some discs in the post today and they seem to have a groove milled into the edge? My first thoughts were it must be for balancing reasons? But I thought I'd post it on here and see what you guys think?





    Thanks in advance

    Seen loads from euros like that and never seen issues with people fitting them but if you feel uncomfortable with fitting them take them back.

    Nothing to worry about, standard procedure by manufacturers for balancing.

    As said, pretty standard. You'd be more pissed if they forgot to balance them...

    Do you mean something like this westy?

    Happened at the end of the warm up session on my last track day last month.
    Heard a high pitch metallic sound twice, both front disc craked, i had to crawl home using the hand brake to slow down.

    Not quite that severe but the guy was driving round on the cracked disc and said it had been like that for months!
