    No. The braking path (blade) of the XTR rotors is too narrow. The Avid pads will sweep across the rotor (arms). This will cause uneven pad wear which will eventually lead to other issues. So unless you want to grind and bevel each set of pads to fit the rotors... I wouldn't do it.

    If you have centerlock wheels, just get the centerlock adapters and run 6 bolt rotors.
