Outside of actually measuring it, most rotors are stamped with diameter and minimum allowed thickenss. But, if you don't have the tools to check the rotors, how do you propse to change them out? A good part store will be able to figure out what rotors you need from the VIN number.

I can feel the rotors and can see they are in need of replacement you can tell by looking at the outside of circle of the rotor and it has edges and groves where the rotors surface use to be and is deteriorated from brakes. I just replaced all brakes on the car and its still squeaking from one rotor and i just want to change them all since i have never i am the 2nd owner of the car it is at 79,000 miles and asked for brake pad replacement. But i appreciate your concern thank you very much for the help.
