Amazingly stupid disc brake question

Can I cross brands for disc rotors ie put Shimano rotors with SRAM calipers?

It's just a hill. Get over it.

    Yes, diameter is the important bit, not brand

    And thickness. Ooo’er, missus!😀

    There are some minor considerations for pad material compatibility, and I’ve found some discs are simply noisier than others, but they will all work.

    A local LBS mechanic is of the opinion that Shimano rotors are much sturdier than SRAM counterparts.

    Whjen I went from R7000 hydro to Etap Rival I kept the Ultegra Freeza rotors, they might be a little noiseier than Sram but I saved £100 going this route.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
