You would need to check the rotors for cracks (between the cross drilled holes) and for thickness.

Minimums are:

front 26 mm

rear 22 mm

I was told by the dealer and by an indepedent shop that I should replace the rotors vs resurfacing them so I ended up just buying rotors. What is your take on this? Have you noticed any performance or issues after resurfacing the rotors? Who do you take it to to resurface the rotors?

Any competent automotive machine shop can easily resurface the rotors, as can many well-equipped service stations.

As long as you haven't worn the rotors down to near their minimum allowable thickness, they should perform as well as new rotors.

Thanks! Good thing I didn't throw away my old rotors, I guess now I have a spare set.
