Yes changed the disc too when changed from OEM to Roulunds pads
If thickness is more than 5mm then take a picture and post here.
Apart from that is there other way to notice the start of the wear out like some marks on the disc or something? Thing is i am not really comfy in removing the wheel myself (yea very noob with cars). Remember reading in other thread that a a squeaky sound is also a sign. Apart from that any?
Sorry if it sounds very noob, but i have very limited knowledge. So dont jump on me guys.
Any specific reason ?
nothing specific Ganges! just to help him guess how much more they will last

zen, you dont need to worry about it until atleast 10k kms in the worst case.
squeaky sound can be due to many other reasons as well so that doesn't necessarily imply wearing of pads
if its OEM minimum 30K Kms should be life i guess.
My OEM lasted till 43K Kms.
Yeah visual makes sense.
Isn't 5 mm on the higher side ? I though that approx 2 mm would warrant a change.
Am planning to purchase Roulands as 2set is wearing out soon than first

GEMCO comes with 10mm thickness .... :evilsmile when i fitted i have to reduce the Brake oil level
ganges, we can't generalize like that. it depends hugely on driving style and the kind of roads we drive on.
for example mine dont last more than 15-16k kms.
for making an educated guess we need to look at:
1. the thickness left
2. the thickness when it was new
3. how many kms did it take to reach the current thickness.
using the above information we can predict.
