Drums and rotors do have wear out measurements, a minimum thickness for rotors and drums a maximum diameter.
But most people don't bother to measure this when they replace pads or shoes.

I really want to do it now but the cheapest I can find the rotors, calipers and pads is about $3,400.
But the Jewish side if me can't let go of that much $.
Keep looking and maybe I can find a used set cheaper.
