Got 2 new front aftermarket brake rotors. I have some NOS front wheel bearings. I wanted to go with US made bearings. Do I need to remove the races in the new rotors and use the NOS bearing races? I guess my question is are all the bearings made the same so the race and bearing is compatible.

I would use the races that came with the bearings.
I've seen some junk new China parts...

I've seen a bearing race with a part line, not a strait line but where two peaces of metal had folded together, it was not solid.
I have seen bearing races cracked fresh out of the box.
