Rotor thickness for 2014 Honda Accord LX 2.4L Sign In

I don't see the minimum rotor thickness stamped on the rotor anywhere, and I can't seem to find it by googling. Anyone know the minimum thickness for the front and rear rotors? Thanks.

Presumably you are doing brakes and not just curious. Just toss them for new. By the time you machine/turn them there isn't enough for the rest of a normal life and they'll warp so no bargains. They are marked somewhere perhaps some rust you can't read it or were such cheapo ones before you shouldn't want them anyway,

Tom is right. The price of rotors is so cheap now and the cost of labor is so high, rotors are disposable now.

Most floating rotors are under $30 now. You'll pay $25 to cut one and all the problems Tom talked about will show up.

If they have never been cut and are nor rusty or ground at all, you could take a pass for a new surface but I would still opt for new.

0.827 inches front
0.315 inches rear


I wouldn't even attempt to machine the rears unless you are using an on-the-car brake lathe. Way much cheaper and less hassle to just replace front and rear rotors as the others stated.

Thanks everyone for replying! So, those of you who don't measure the rotor thickness, do you replace the rotor every time you replace the pads? That would seem like a waste...

That would depend on whether you own a lathe or not. If you have to pay someone to cut them it's not worth it. If you already have a lathe, then it wouldn't hurt to cut the front ones yourself.

Still stand with what I said 1st time. Just don't keep the old ones price alone is a negative just for not lasting as long or other bull - they should (hope so) be balance new once cut that's gone.
The total braking feel and effectiveness will be so much better if you just do them and if a few bucks convinced of better quality that too. Clean hubs up well if crusty so the new fit on nice and true + lube all parts of caliper(s) with proper grease you'll love it,

I think I would disagree with the quality aspect of Tom's comment. Unless you spend considerably more for the quality rotors, the OEM that you have would be higher quality but with rotors that really doesn't effect too much.

Can agree with that. I just get "anal" about one type (is costly) that's baked enamel painted then cut and see the balancing marks. That matters more for super heavy rotors and drums as applicable much larger and heavier than this stuff,

You can't compare white box Chinese made with OEM but I've never found the metal quality to matter much.
