Turn the rotors?

I was wondering if these could be turned or just buy new rotors?

Well ventilated, but I'd worry more about the missing studs

NOT my vehicle, just a pic I found but thought it was funny.


If it were my wifes car she would INSIST it made no funny noises at all they just quite working without warning..


I think it is a vehicle that uses bolts instead of studs??

The hard part wouldn't be turning them the hard part in my area would be finding a place that still turns rotors.

Come to think about it, yeah, probably some sort of Euro-trash using bolts

I say turn 'em more than they already are.... less rotating mass = better E.T. times!

At least the dust shield is nice and intact - might try to turn that!!
(Us folks up here in the rust belt don't get to see nice looking brake shields like that very often unles it's a new rig!)
