Any shop will force you to replace rotors when you need pads only, simply because for additional few minutes of labor, not only they get additional labor charge, but 40 or even 100% part markups.
Since you are here, I assume you are DIY, >>> Excellent brake pads cost less than $100 for even the most expensive models and when you get some practice, you can replace pads on 4 wheels slightly above 1 hr.
That will make a profit of $400-700 for 1 hr of mechanical work and few minutes of ordering parts on the net.
How much you make per hr on your day job?
