Rotors on a budget suggestion

Been pricing rotors and reading reviews, kind of back to square one. Power Slots are out of my budget at this time. rare to tow anything other than my boat, 20ft center console.


Thanks,
Bobby

I had mine turned and they didn't last 5k miles despite having PLENTY of material left. It's not even worth it to have them turned. I am going through this debate right now and going to get some factory OEM replacements.

Not going to mess with turning them, too many people have problems that did that. Hearing a lot about OEM warping also.


Thanks,
