Regardless of brand, MIKE the new discs you are getting and know what the reject thickness is. The cheaper Chinese of anything typically make their discs just thicker (maybe plus .010"?) than the reject thickness to make them much cheaper, and then the new parts are undersize within 3 months of use. The better discs will be much thicker (.100" or more) than the reject number thus allowing you possibly one good cut before they are too thin. And don't use semi-metallic pads, or what now wear the discs as bad as the pads do. Ceramic will let the disc go much longer to another set of pads.

I used to sell them.
Fix the driver first, then fixing the car becomes so much easier..........
