    rotors? minimum thickness?

    trying to pull of a cheap brake job for the time being, as im going to florida soon i want everything to be up to par. so i figure a set of cut rotors and all new pads would do for me. anyone know the minimum thickness for 04.5 rotors both front and rear?

    thanks

    aaron- the front left caliper slide stuck a while back and wore the inner pad to metal, so that rotor is pretty much trash. i just threw a set of pads on there for now. but they are just past their time. all are glazed and the rears have neearly no pad left.

    and jim, THANK YOU!!!

    Fair enough answer thought you were being over cautious or something, but if thats the case you should get that looked after asap

    That's the other option. Unfortunately, it's not long before the rust fills it in.
