Just wanted to know what the actual difference is on the rotors, ABS is on the axles.

Yes, these are the tone wheels for ABS.

ABS rotors will work fine on a non-ABS car.

You may be able to add the tone wheels to normal rotors, I'm unsure.

One of the fellas here will know.

You CAN still buy the tone ring for the front rotors but they are a BASTARD to fit. Not worth the hassle to get them and add them for ABS purposes.
