This is very real. A shop I once went to in Atlanta had no air tools in the wheel/tire area. I commented on this - and they told me about how they had to buy a customer 4 new Jaguar rotors because of warping. As told to me, most European car rotors are generally made with less meat (less unsprung weight) and are considered disposable - not turnable.
