Front brake discs on my 218is have a wear lip and it may be time to replace them, can anybody tell me what the minimum safe thickness is?

It usually says on the disc, but can a tad hard to read due to rust. I think its 19mm, they are 22mm thick new. You can grind the lip off if its not too big. But if you want std discs again and not performance ones then new std discs aren't dear.
