Should I turn my Rotors? let me know.

Today i took off my slotted rotors for the first brake job on them since purchased. They feel fine, nice and smooth not warped. So now i ask my self....Should i turn them now that their off, or install them back and wait till the next brake job? I really really need your opinions guys. Thanks.

It depends on who you ask, some say turn them since they are off, I say wait if they feel really good. You can only have your rotors turned so many times before you have to get new ones, but if you decide to turn them later, than you deffinetly need to get new brake pads again...

I would not turn them. I would clean them realy good and give them a good scuffing with some sand paper.

Slotted rotors...unless you're doing it yourself, have the right equip, and know what you're doing...I wouldn't....heard many horrors stories of damaged slotted rotors from overzealous brake techs...

Thank you guys for all the info. I guess a nice scuff from a 200 grit should be good. Can't wait to try out them hawk pads I picked up from Raul @stealth! Once again thanks guys!
