For them to use salt, you need snow. So, no.

Just when I left selling auto parts, my company started selling these black-coated rotors. Obviously, the black (I canít remember what the coating actually was) would wear off under the pads, and I remember thinking, ďWhatís the point?Ē

But Iíve never lived in the snow belt, so I donít know how aggressively the salt attacks other parts of a rotor.

Iíll probably have to learn, Iíve dragged my feet long enough on moving to NY state that Iíll find myself on a short learning curve.
