At some stage you are going to have to replace your rotors so why not upgrade to rotors. Clarks wavey rotors are made from corrosion resistant steel, without the loss of performance even on the most arduous decent.
Clarks Wavey Rotor Features:
Rotor plus 6 'Torx' headed bolts
Buy Clarks Wavey Rotor from Chain Reaction Cycles, the world's largest online bicycle store.
Rated 4 out of 5 by AlexK Excellent, except using a file was needed
Great rotor, braking is strong, no rusting even when salt is applied (salt is used to prevent ice build up at Russian roads).
As mentioned below, it used to rub against caliper body. So i took a file and just filed down the curves at the outer radius a bit (1 mm was enough). No more vibrations and braking is rock solid.
Rubbing was happening in both my setups - rock shox fork and cheap chineese rigid fork, both with original shimano mount and deore hydraulic caliper.
Bottom line - buy it, if you have a file, or you do not mind buying it.

Spot on. Good quality and great value for money, what more do you want?

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jerms Works but that's about it.
It works just like any other rotors should, I purchased a pair of 180/180 and mounted it with Shimano M596 brakes. It isn't as strong as it should be as the contact with the pads are limited to the outer half of the rotor; so it takes me a little longer to stop. There is also an "ABS" feel when I apply hard braking, in the sense that there is a clicking feel because of the wave design in the rotor. But I guess it is because of non-compatibility.

These disks are great had 3 sets so far on my DH and AM bikes they are awesome value for money. They run with any brake set and handle long runs perfectly

Rated 1 out of 5 by frstep 203mm does not work correctly with Shimano calliper
Cheap and cheerful maybe, but I get a vibration on hard braking that I do not get with 2 other rotors (Shimano and Superstar). It would appear the braking surface is just too cut away to be effective. Avoid.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sheikanvac Distort when hot!
I used these front and back (203mm) and they were fine until used for hard consistent braking. The whole outer edge distorted out of shape and made the bike vibrate violently. The rotor returned to original shape when it cooled. I'm not sure if this is a faulty batch or these are just rubbish, I've contacted Clarks so I'll be interested to hear what they say!
I've change to another brand of rotor with no problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous These disks are great, for the price you pay can't go wrong
I own a 203 and a 185 of these disks paired with hope m4 brakes one word awesome. Once they bed in they feel just like top of the range disks. If you are on a budget these things are a must.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous cheap but weak
I'm using it for about two months. Braking heats up and expands very much touching the brake body. Avid Elixir.
Si dilata moltissimo andando a toccare il corpo della pinza freno. Non vale il risparmio economico.
