Can SS rotors be measured w/ wheels on?

Hey, quick question. It looks like one could micrometer the SS rotors with those giant 20's without taking the wheels off the car?

TIA!

Sure. If you can fit your hand and micrometer through the wheel, be my guest.

And that was a statement, not a question.

OK, so, according to this post, the thicknesses are:

New: 1.25

Min before replacement required: 1.18

Sound legit? Can't go below 1.18 or the car explodes?

From the wiki: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/wiki.p...O+WIKI&#BRAKES

new thickness is 1.26

when they reach minimum thickness or below, a machine shop won't turn them. As they get thinner, durability and performance will change.
