Disk rotor thickness

I’m sure this topic has been discussed before but have not found anything in search. I’ve never replaced my 1998 230’s disk brake rotors. Car has 105k miles and I drive mostly around town with heavy stop and go traffic. At what thickness should I change the rotors? Thsnks in advance for the help.

Tried a UK variation on the search.


Known as discs, rather than rotors here.


Try these threads: Mercedes Benz SLK Forum - Search Results for R170 SLK230 Brake disc wear limits


But it should be in the glovebox manual, I'd have thought.
