Default are my rotors worn bad?(pics)

i dont know how bad this looks, maybe someone can tell me. In terms of grooves i cant really feel any with my fingers so i dont think they are that deep, also the yeollow spots on the rotors is because it jus poured rain here overnite....

On that second pic it looks like there is a groove at the top of the rotor. Is there a lip up there when you run your hand over it? The entire rotor face should be flat.

with your squealing, you might want to try to have the rotors turned. Pep boys charges $32 for the set, and you've got nothing else to lose, except about 1mm of rotor.

there is a lip on the outer edge of each rotor thats prolly 1/8-1/4 of an inch big...i dont see the logic tho because if my OEM pads never squeeled then why now would these pads squeel because of the rotors....

Your OEM pads are what caused that groove because they never made contact with that part of the rotor while the new HPS pads might be a little larger and now are contacting that part making the squeak.

the yellow spots are just from the rain. whenever i wash my car those spots show up also, but when you use the brakes they just go away. but the groove is something completely seperate and the rotors should be turned.

Yeah, I would probably turn them if I were you. It might fix your squealing problem, and it definitely won't do any harm.
