Scuff rotor or not

Hey guys I'm changing my front pads this weekend, the rotors are fine, no grooves or anything that would require a turning.

Just wondering what you thought about lightly sanding or wire wheeling otherwise good rotors when replacing pads? Make a difference? Waste of time?

Thanks

If they are like you say in good condition you will notice no difference whatsoever. Although lightly sanding them down will make for a nice flat surface for new pads, most likley they are already good to go. Cant hurt but likley not worth you time, either way you good to go haha Sorry for confusing answer, personally id just swap pads and go but some people are more meticulous with the little things

Used emery cloth like Rob mentioned and got em all nice and clean. Went back with the same pads I was running before - Posi Quiet semi metallic. Hardly any dust and not a huge drop off in stopping power compared to the brembos.
