It's usually stamped on the edge. Runout cannot exceed .0004" and end float should be between .002-.004" when tightening the bearing.

Hi MikeBentleyTurbo2,

As Richy pinpointed the big brakes ain't cheap. I was told that they were originaly
made by ATE. I am no expert but the knukle hub is bolted on the rotor, therefore, if you find rotor having the right dimensions you cannot use it because that same rotor needs yo have nine homes. I encourage you search on ebay. Despite my advice which is common,I hope that cheaper substitutes to Flying Spares should exit.
Bon courage,

Many brake disc rotors now have the machined groves that show when the minimum thickness is reached.
