Do i need new front rotors? or just resurface? pictures attached.

Hello, fellow members. Hope you are having good weekend.
I have a quick question about our rotors. i heard front rotors should have minimum thickness of 91" or 23mm but i'm not sure exactly from which point to measure.. i'm in need of front and rear pads soon and possibly front rotor but not sure if it can be resurfaced with this thickness level.
Looking forward to hear experts' advices

Thank you in advance guys.

The rotor has two faces with each interfacing with a brake pad. The width of the rotor is the distance between the faces. So, a traditional measuring caliper may not measure that area because it may rest on a ridge at the outside of the rotor formed by the position of the brake pad inside of the edge of the rotor. You need an outside caliper to get a proper reading from the centers of the pad zones on each side of the rotor.
This will do it. http://www.all-spec.com/products/545...FZCEaQod5HYAYQ

Apart from that, the rotor in your picture looks to me to be just fine. I don't see any excessive wear on it.

As a rule you can machine Honda rotors about four times before you have to replace them. We do them on car with a Hunter brake lathe and everytime we change pads for a smooth braking surface.
