Graham, I was lucky because there was no traffic. I just wanted to slow down a tad, and hitting the brakes without any reaction is very disturbing. Probably in heavy traffic, one has the foot on the brakes every now and then so they stay warm. Yesterday morning was the 1st time ever I drove quite a stretch without needing the brakes. Imagine it's colder, you're on the Hwy, and you need to stop. What's next?
It's true, the last time I washd the rims was in May, and my rims still look good. It's true the pads worked great the whole summer, no complaints, just a slight lesser bite compared to OEM. But what I experienced yesterday morning was a wakeup call. What if the light would have turned red and I had stop, and there was traffic going through? And if also had my kids in the back seat?
I made up my mind. Jurids.
