New after market rotors have small nick, safe to install?

Hello everyone,

I will be replacing my brakes and rotors soon. My car has 110K miles or so and I am not entirely sure if the rotors needed replacing but I have been overdue for quite a while so I opted to do all the rotors as well.

This is my first time doing brakes (myself) and I ordered the power stop kit after seeing them have a good reputation and noticed one of the rotors has a small nick the size of a pen tip. I wonder how bad this could be long term.

I currently donít have pictures but when I get home I can upload if that could make this easier.

Thank you

I would say thats more than fine to run I'm using rotors and pads I got off of an echo at the junkyard 10k miles with no problems so far. If you look at drilled/slotted rotors they have indents that go farther into the rotor than that nick you have. Id say run them.
