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 :lol: Sorry for confusing answer, personally id just swap pads and go but some people are more meticulous with the little things :thumbsup:

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.
