Chances are good I won't pull them off and weigh them for a while, but they're slightly less thick than the no-name rotors I had installed before. Having held them both I don't think there's a significant difference in weight, but if anything it's on the lighter side.

They are iron rotors that are plated with aluminum/zinc. Not aluminum coated with zinc.

That makes much better sense, given the heat and stress. I thought the 10 lbs I saw for a similar seeming Bosch rotor was a bit heavy for aluminium & zinc!

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
