    Did you install fresh pads with the new rotors?

    Are you doing burnouts while holding the brake?

    What is getting chewed, the pad swept area or another location?

    Have you checked your caliper out? Could be frozen.

    True, the caliper pins allow the caliper to float. If not the pins, then check the caliper pistons. Drag on your rotor would be a clue to either one.

    were the axles the same width? sounds like they are pushing the rotors outbound and riding the pad.

    like said above check for the caliper being stuck, You can jack up the rear and try spinning the rear tires and see how much drag is on them. Have you had the brake lines open for any reason? Either air in the system or your calipers are sticking
