Is there any reason I can't go with standard blank rotors (with no holes) on the rear?

I was thinking since the rears are not floating rotors technically, I'd
rather have the advantage of more surface area and more pad life, no rusting holes etc.

Unless of course it is recommended to use these as a complete package front and rear. any input would be appreciated.

I just installed the front set a couple of days ago. I ordered the rear rotors as well but don't plan on replacing those until they are due.

As a daily driven car, I don't feel a difference. Mainly for looks as some suggested.
