Which would be better: the centerlock XT rotors (sm-rt77) or the XTR rotors (sm-rt96)?
I have two sets of wheels (both with xtr centerlock hubs and rotors), and I have problems finding true centerlock rotors.

Can anyone tell if the XTs would be less wobbly than the XTRs?
As we all know the rotors need to be very exactly true, or rubbing will occur.

I have heard that XT rotors fit better, at least on the XTR wheels (WH-M965). The XT rotors are only 3g heavier than the XTRs.
