The reason people use new rotors in cars these days is because being made in China they are virtually the same price as having the old one's resurfaced. Just more of the throw away society. I rarely replace or resurface rotors, only when there is a shudder which is about 1 in every say 30 brake pad replacements. Even that's a misleading number as its mostly certain make/models that have recurring problems pointing to a design issue. My own SUV (Toyota LandCruiser) has nearly 300,000 kilometres on it and all the rotors are original. And that includes a lot of heavy towing.
My bike has 180,000 kilometres on it, and the front rotors are original. Back is now on its third.
Back on topic, for those worried about over tightening an oil filter if you just screw it up as tight as possibly by hand, get a jam jar about the same size in diameter and see if you can strip the thread of the metal lid doing it up by hand as tight as you possibly can (even use a rag for a better grip if your want). Bet you can't.
Tighten the filter up as tight as you can by hand, stick in the oil, start the engine and check for leaks, job done. Use the KISS principal, it will NOT come undone. You will have to use a tool to undo it next replacement.
