They are fine. Buy the cheapest blanks you can get.

Hm, that's the replacement rotors I bought when I did the ZHP's brakes last time.

They seem to be holding up find and working good for me. Didn't notice any braking difference between the Zimmerman and the OE brake rotors.

Thanks.....

I'll go for them then.
Found a place on-line that has them much cheaper than other sources I have seen.
