Is it necessary to replace rotors when replacing brake pads on my M5?

My car has 41500 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Thanks for writing in about your BMW M5. The rotors should be checked to be correct thickness. They should only be replaced if they’re damaged or below the minimum thickness. If you’re unsure if you’re rotors need to be replaced, have your brake system diagnosed by a certified technicican, like one from YourMechanic.
