I have been hearing a knocking sound when I brake, it seems to match the speed of the wheel. What do I do? I replaced the brakes and rotors this past summer and only recently started hearing this sound. Is it safe to drive?

Most likely a hot spot in the rotor from overheating of the brakes.

Replace the pads and rotors and be more gentle on the brakes.
