While installing a new tire I noticed I had a slight warp in my rear rotor. enough to wear my iner pad a little more than the outer and enough
to make the caliper float back and forth a couple
mm's. Can this be staightened or do I need a new rotor or I just live with it? How much is a new rotor? Thanks in advance

You can straighten them using an adjustable wrench if they are not bent too badly.

I bent my front rotor some time ago and I tried and tried to get it straight but I finally decided it was a lost cause.

I just decided to live with it since it dosent wear pads prematurely.
