MCHENRY, Ill. (Aug. 28, 2014) — Kevin Byrd and Willie B, hosts of the MAVTV show “Two Guys Garage,” will feature Raybestos-brand brake rotors in an episode premiering Sept. 19.

“‘Two Guys Garage’ is an excellent vehicle to showcase the quality and value of Raybestos-brand rotors in comparison to lightweight rotors sold by other companies,” said Bruce Tartaglione, senior vice president of global sales and marketing for Brake Parts Inc., purveyor of the Raybestos brand.  

“Kevin and Willie B really know their stuff,” he continued. “They do a great job explaining to viewers how lightweight rotors can adversely impact braking distances, pad wear and safety.”

The new “Two Guys Garage” tech tip compares a premium Raybestos-brand rotor with a competitor’s lightweight rotor.

Since lightweight rotors do not match the original rotor design, they have less mass at critical points, weakening the rotor, according to Brake Parts, adding that lightweight rotors cannot absorb the heat created by brake pads, so that heat is transferred to other parts, such as calipers and hub bearings.

Two Guys Garage” airs on MAVTV, available on DirecTV (channel 214) and Dish Network (channel 248) as well as through several cable providers nationwide. The episode featuring the Raybestos rotors will air at 2 p.m. EDT and 5 p.m. EDT on the 19th, with encore showings at 10:30 a.m. EDT on Sept. 21 and 1:30 p.m. EDT, Brake Parts said.
