Question: What Are The Differences Between Commercial Brake Drums, Rotors, And Hubs?

Answer: Brake drums and rotors make the vehicle stop whereas the hub makes the wheel turn. Rotors provide better stopping distance when compared to brake drums. They also provide better control over the vehicle when stopping so the vehicle doesn't begin to sway to either side but rather stays straight.
