If you use a rotor that is 9mm thick, you will be replacing them at a rate of about 1 an hour I reckon :lol:

(There is a reason that the minimum thickness is 22.2 mm)

Minimum thickness for a rear rotor on EA to ED is 8.5mm, and the same for EF to EL and AUI. AUII went to thicker rotors.

Hi guys, DBA catalogue lists minimum thickness on rear rotors EB-ED at 12mm (P/N 111B), EF-EL at 8.5mm (P/N 133). I'm only aware cause I'm overhaulin' my brakes at the moment.
