Usually the specs are marked on the edge of the disc, but maybe hard to read if they are used and a bit rusty.

Street,

Stamped on the edge of my front disc is, 11MM minimum thickness.

Hope this helps,

It seems like you have got a Kiwi Inspector that's a pain in the butt.

Any doubts in your mind just replace.They are triumph and as cheap as chips from Rimmer bros Uk.

Shipping to you could be prohibitive though.
