I'll have to consider trying to change out the brackets for the next brake change, so I can run the larger rotor. I'm running 16x7 wheels so clearance isn't an issue.

I finally got a set of rotors from NAPA. They're made in China, but at this point, whatever. I got the car up on jackstands and the wheels off for a closer inspection. To my surprise the fronts aren't nearly as worn as I thought, probably only about 50%. One of the rear calipers is stuck though and is the source of my metal-on-metal grinding. It could also be the source of the vibration and poor braking behavior I had been experiencing before the squealing started.
I may just change out the rears and fix the stuck caliper for now, then hold off on doing the fronts until I can test it out again.
