The bolts that attach your rotors make a slip-critical safety-related connection thatís governed by bolt tensile load so the grade of titanium (tensile strength) becomes important. This may not be a good place to save money.

I replaced mine with domed socket head screws in A4 stainles with no problems, its a cheaper alternative than TI

I wouldn't use Ti on the brake disc bolts..ti is actually quite soft and when you come to take the bolts out you've a 99% chance of rounding the socket than it actually undoing!!I speak from experience.
