If you can lay your hands on a micrometer you can measure the thickness and check it against the specification of new rotors. If you have started seeing a metal lip on the edge of the rotor (not the rust, you would have to remove that) then they are probably worn beyond minimum spec. I will leave the comments for replacement for those who know the car. If it helps at all. Regards Charles -- Please remove _removeme_ to reply.
