JoeSandor The thickness of the rotor is stamped into the side (edge) of the rotor. Look for the minimum dimension. If the rotor is above that numbers, do not replace the rotor or have the mechanic replace the rotor. There is a good chance a slight turning of the rotor will "true-up" the surface and allow it to stay in use. (PS - I used to manufacture rotors and drums.)

LewisMend Great article to sell stuff. Missing a bunch of facts though. Rotors can make a grind sound due to surface rust from moisture or just plane worn out pads coming in contact .. not just the wear markers.
Also, if you have ‘hat’ style rotors they might be designed to be economically replaced at each pad job. However the hub and rotors combo was never designed to be a throw away. In any case either can be turned so long as the new thickness is not under the federal mandated dimension. The idea of replacing them prior to that dimension is just wasting money.
