Pretty sure I have some new formula rotors in 180. Might have some very lightly used shamans ones too. Ill have a rummage...

Thanks guys, would you say i am better off getting Shimano rotors to match the brakes ? I've not mixed across manufacturers before with rotors, would it make a difference do you think ?

Hi there, I was using the avid rotors with xt callipers/pads and had no issues.. they were really good, no noise and operation was great. I’d still be using them now but the wheels I bought came with centre lock discs so I can’t use them anymore.

They are often pretty cheap new, even branded, on eBay - around the £6-8 mark.

you can mix and match brands, the only issue I've found is floating rotors aren't always compatible as the rivet position can mean it hits the calliper.

Maguras rotors are a different thickness. Rest are all same I believe

I'm using formula floating rotors with magura MT6 brakes with no issues.

There are of course vented discs which are thicker too.
