I don't know, my current rotors are still good even though they have some tiny cracks and I changed the pads less than a year ago.
I am searching for wheels so I will probably install the brakes at the same time as the wheels

Tiny cracks??? Wow, that might make me a bit nervous. Do you have a theory as to why/how they cracked?

The cracks are due to the track days I did with it. It does not make me nervous it is absolutely normal on cross drilled rotors. As long as they do not spread on the surface there is no risk for street usage.

Ideally I would like Work VS-XX or Meister S1
Otherwise I love the look of the Vossen VVS-CV3 but it is a totally different type of wheel.

Ok got ya. I was thinking they went all the way through. I assume they are just on the surface.just a result of high temps and cooling fast.
