i notice right now the ATE premiumone rotors (see them all the time in CT flyers/commercials etc) are 50% off. that would bring em to around $80/rotor for my application, vs $37 for economy blanks, and $60 for raybestos mid-level's.
ATE PremiumOne Rotors feature a patented RotorLife wear indicator that provides a quick visual reference of rotor thickness, and helps identify the need for replacement. The wear indicator’s elliptical grooves also dissipate heat and gases in order to reduce brake fade and extend pad life. A MetaCote protective coating is applied to help prevent rust and corrosion so the rotors maintain a clean appearance.
