Do these rotors look normal?

Do these rotors look normal to ya'll?





Brakes don't see to have quite the stopping power as they did when new. Nothing major is wrong (no vibrations, brakes still work reasonably well), just they feel a little softer then I feel they should. I'm only concerned as I've never had rotors that look like this, with the many concentric circles (what looks like pad material). It's noticeably uneven, i.e. built up a bit on top of the rotor, although again it's not REAL bad and can't notice any vibrations in the pedal.

I tried rebedding them as well and it didn't seem to help.

Just wondering if this looks OK or not.

Given that you said the brakes feel soft, I'd say that maybe a brake fluid flush should be in order. If any moisture or air enters the system it can cause the brakes to feel soft and not as responsive.

Thats what I'd say too.^^^^^^^^^^ Plus I'd scuff up the rotors too.
