    Minimum rotor width?

    Most vehicles have a spec for the minimum width that rotors can get to before they need to be replaced. Does anyone know this spec for the Mirage?

    So we have about what, .065" imperial to play with? Not too bloody much is it.
    Zero, my 2014 ES Plus gone but not forgotten. We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century

    Nowadays I just buy rotors every time I change pads if I put on the better ceramic pads, and every other time if I use cheaper semi-metallic pads. They're pretty cheap if you buy from the right places (eBay, for example). Sucks but it seems to be the way things are going nowadays, rotors are disposable.
