It sounds like the shop is saying your rotors are undersized (too thin). Every manufacturer has a "minimum allowable thickness" for brake rotors. If a rotor is at the minimum or below the minimum thickness a shop needs to recommend replacement. As new pads wear, the rotor wears as well. I have seen broken rotors because people allowed them to get too thin. Are all of your brake pads worn to the minimum? hope this helps
