In brief, the basic argument is that rather than rotors warping, the brake pads deposit microscopic bits of themselves on the rotor ( Brake Pad Bed-In ). The run-out or "warp" comes from these deposits not being uniform around the rotors surface. The article I linked to above explains it in great detail as well as methods for prevention.

This information does not answer the OP's original question, but I offered it hoping to debunk the common thought process...and possibly prevent him and others from needing to replace their rotors before they otherwise should need to.

Hey I sold brake pads for 25 years... Many manufacturers clinics and sales meetings...never heard it, but I guess you learn something every day.
