But the average age of cars on the road today is less than a third of that: 11.5 years per this Average age of cars on U.S. roads breaks record So does it make sense to spend a lot of money to extend the lifespan of the brake rotors far beyond how long you'd expect the car to last? Especially if there's no other benefit?

Add to that the fact that most of us here should be using our brakes far less than the average driver.
