Although pad deposits can and did contribute to my problems, to conclude that improper bedding is solely to blame is a stretch. When I had my centric rotors resurfaced they were measurably warped and exhibited clear signs of heat build up. The pads may play a large factor as I was also using Stoptech (centric brand) pad. A trusted indy mechanic performed the install and bedding procedure for me in 2 cases of failure, while I did it all myself the third time. The rear brakes, where the heat build up is much less, are also/still centric/stoptech, have never exhibited a problem for almost 7000 miles now.
