Can someone please tell me the minimum brake rotor thickness on a 2003 Honda CR-V. I am Changing all the pads and want to make sure rotors are still thick enough before I have them turned. Thanks TG

Rotors are cheap unless you are on a tight tight budget. Get new rotors. Remember, when you turn rotors you are making them thinner. Thinner rotors don't dicipate heat as well and can lead to heat cracking and or warping much faster and also increasing your stopping distance. Around me, turning rotors was almost the same price as buying new ones. I picked up 4 rotors from Tire rack for $160 and the cheapest I could find a place to turn rotors was just under $100. Sadly with the way rotors are made anymore, the days of having them turned are just about useless.
