Default How should rotors look?

Took a few shots of my rotors to see if anybody can see anything wrong with them. What I, and others, have noticed is that the front rotors appear to be glazed maybe and they're really worn down (there'* a huge lip on the outter edge of the rotor) and the rear rotors have huge grooves in them and maybe some pitting? do both fronts and rears look shot?

FRONT:



REAR:

At first glance, your fronts look ok, but your backs are grooved a bit. Hard to tell without pulling the wheels.

They really should be measured for thickness, then also checked for run out. There is a minimum thickness spec. (maybe stamped on back side) also maximum allowable run out. Sorry, I don't know the specs off hand.

Fronts look good...rears should be checked. Midas will do free inspections.

I went ahead and took a picture of the rear rotor with the wheel removed while I was replacing my rear shocks..
