I just got new rotors delivered to me and they have 2 screw holes for securing the rotor. Can i still use these new rotors and not use the screws? There were no screws included with the new rotors.

measure measure measure
Be sure the diameter and thickness (to the 1,000ths) are right.
I bought some dimpled/slotted ones that have lasted very well. Heat was warping my OEM ones.

screw holes for securing? front or rear?
are the holes threaded on the rotor? Those may be for REMOVING a stuck on rotor, not for securing. I just worked on my ebrake and one of the rotors refused to come loose with the normal 'semi-abusive' methods. Then I realized that's what the threaded holes are for, put a bolt in there and it will push the rotor off the axle (spindle, whatever name you want) nice and easy.

^^ this

the tiny little hole is there in case the rotor REALLY gets stuck on.. you can thread something in there to assist with the removal.

I'm really happy I figured that out too because I didn't want to damage the rotor with a bigger hammer. Seriously, if it takes more than one whack to break loose, just use a bolt in the threaded hole, takes 30 seconds and it's off.

Yup. Not like they were contacting anything to begin with. One rotor came off easily with one hit from the deadblow. The other refused to budge even after letting it sit with some Kroil and many hits of the deadblow. Put a bolt into each of the he threaded holes and a few seconds later off it came.
