Are these ZL1 rotors worth refinishing? (pics)

The new rotors are on their way!

Would these stock rotors be worth refinishing, to keep around for spares?

The rears are not cracked, but both fronts tell a different story.

Thanks to the previous owner for the condition...

Thanks in advance for the input.

I wouldn't roll the dice on them to be honest - last thing you want is to be worried about your brakes giving out.

My thoughts too.

Not worth the chance. Thanks for the response

I wouldn't turn them, but you should be fine to keep running them for a while. That's actually pretty typical for hard track use. I see you still have plenty of pad left, so I suggest just keeping an eye on them and if the cracks get larger or start reaching for the edge then it's time to replace them.

Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

You never know. Have them mic'd and checked out. Try one and see how it looks. You can resurface them if so and sell them on craigslist or something.

Having them checked by a machine shop is ridicous?
