I got my rotors out.

Followed an excellent technique that was posted by Hassman.

After soaking the rotors with penetrating oil, i just hit the face of the rotor that mates with the wheel (i.e. the flat face that has the five holes for the lug nuts) with a hammer less than 10 times (each hit spaced approximately 60 degrees) and the rotor came off the hub very easily. And I didn't have to hit it real hard either.

Had I known this technique earlier, I would have saved a lot of aggravation when I was trying to remove my rear rotors this summer.

Thank you all for replying.
