I get mine from Oreilly Auto Parts. $55 per rotor, and those are the lifetime warranty rotors. House brand usually runs you about 32 per rotor. keep in mind you get what you pay for. I wouldn't go cheap on something like brakes.

I got those same rotors (lifetime) and have been happy with 'em. You can see a big difference between them and some el cheapo's. BigBlue knows what I mean. Expect the lousy ones to warp and ruin your pads long before they are "well used". Cheap cost = cheap materials = expensive multiple brake jobs. When you do choose a place to get 'em, ask to see both the better ones and the cheapo's....you will see a BIG difference.

If you'd like to see tons of photos of cheap rotors and pads from one of those Meineke or Midas brake job places that were not even two months old when I replaced them, let me know. Lets just say I had to take pictures of the bronco's brakes I worked on for lawsuit purposes.
