If the vehicle has anti-lock brakes (ABS), then the rotors must also be the ABS style - for the simple reason of safety; you do not want to disable the ABS system by using the incorrect replacement rotors.
Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.partsgeek.com and www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) lists the replacement brake rotors (ABS style) from around $10.00 each (rear) and from around $13.00 each for the front. This is not expensive - nor are they difficult to replace.
Simply retract the brake pads, unbolt / remove the brake caliper, and remove the brake rotor - it merely slides over the wheell hub and wheel studs.
