I don't even think mine are warped actually, I dont get the pulsing. But the surface is grooved since my pads are low and won't be able to replace them until next weekend. For some reason I thought turning rotors was cheap, but wasn't sure. If it in fact cost me around $100 I would definitely just get new Bendix for $60 ea. and some ceramics and call it a day.
I won't have the $ for new rotors when I change the pads this next weekend though. I figured I'd get cheapo pads until I could get new rotors w/ ceramics.
Would it be good to get ceramic pads now, and drive with them on the crappy rotors for 2 weeks until I can get new rotors?
