    New question here. Shimano XT rotors compatible with Deore calipers?

    Anyone know if the XT SM-RT75 rotors can be used with Deore M485 calipers?

    I don't think so. I actually bought that rotor thinking it would work with that caliper. On closer inspection, I noticed the brake track is narrower than the stock rotor, and narrower than the pads for the M485. I never tried it though, but I'm pretty sure I'd run into problems pretty quick with uneven pad wear.
    I'm looking forward to regretting this.......
