help with new front and rear rotors

I ordered the carbotech front and rear pads. I also want to replace rotors as my front rotors have little cracks around the drilled holes.

can these rotors be turned if they are above the marked thickness ?

buying new rotors, any suggestions on brand ? its just a street car no tracking

thanks for the help

Best to stick with OEM steel rotors. Carbotechs will be fine with them.

I think stoptech has rotors for our cars. Turner Motorsport and ECS are selling them. Iím planning to purchase them once oems are finished
