    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.

    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.

    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.
