If the rotors have dark spots then the rotor is most likely warped. The tires don't look that bad, I do recommend having a shop check the rotor unless you know how to.

How many miles on the car? The brake pads might need replacing and might as well cut the rotors when you do that. Hopefully they are not to far out of round that they can not be cut or used anymore. But I do not see that happening unless they have been cut many times before.

Keep us informed when you find anything out.

I was asking if there is any pulsing in the pedal or vibration when you apply the brakes. Is there?

No my car isn't lowered, but knowing my wheels are balanced and my car is aligned is leaving me scratching my head...
Ok . That's actually how I felt with my wheels. I had them balanced like 3 times. But in my case my car was lowered. I was going thru the forums and found people having loose drive shaft bolts and them actually breaking the driveshaft. That's what I did in my case.when I finally got a new driveshaft. My problem went away

So I took it to another tire shop and turns out ALL wheels were out of balance. I'm never going to NTB again. Firestone did a road force balance and all my wheels and tires are fine, it was just poorly balanced. I WILL be going back to NTB to get my money back since they did NOTHING to fix my issue the first and second time around.

Glad you got it sorted. A good wheel and tire balance and alignment guy are worth every penny. Make sure you go to the same guy at the same store and you should be good for future wheel balancing. The best ones will find the heavy spot in tire and heavy spot in wheel and adjust the tire on the wheel then balance with weights.
