Default Do these CC break pads look ok?



I just had a set of new tires installed on my car and while the wheels were of I figured I'll take a look at the pads...

Do these look fine as wear goes on CC brakes?

I have 2 track days on this and about 4600 miles... they are loud when cold but that I think is normal for these.

Those look fine for street use. Theyd probably get thin quick on track. As a general rule, I like to replace brake pads once they are equal to the thickness of the backing plate. You have to remember that pads wear at a faster rate when they get thinner because they lose heat capacity.

Thanks for the info. I will keep an eye on them but will get at least 2 more track days out of them.

Amazon delivers brake pads the next day AND AC Delco/Brembo CCB brake pads from with 24 month warranty (read the fine print very bottom)
I worn out a set after a few months and Amazon returned all my money (they also offered to send me another set)
I received today NEW 2019 ZR1 CCB brake pads also come with 24 month warranty too!!!

I always want to have my next brake pad in MY garage ready to go :-)

So make sure you check the inner pads as they can wear quicker than the outer ones, plus you can get tapered wear also.

As another poster mentioned, I use the 1/3rd rule: when a pad for a CCM car is worn down to 1/3rd its original thickness, its gets replaced.
