The engineers deliberately designed them to be just stout enough to be durable, but thin enough to dissipate heat quickly.

When turning the rotors, if enough material is removed to make the rotors thinner beyond spec, then the extreme heat they are subject to during normal use will cause them to warp excessively.

Result: New rotor replacements guess what? You were better off replacing them anyway.
