Default 991.2 GT3 CC brake pads



Quick question, can you determine the amount of carbon ceramic brake pad wear with just a pic?

Get yourself one of these:

Those don't look like they have much wear.

Width of backing plate roughly equals 50% pad left, so you are fine

I use the tool recommended by RDCR. Make sure to look at both the leading and trailing edges of the pad. With the longer pads that come with the 6 piston calipers, the leading edge will have significantly more wear. If that's the leading edge shown in the pic, those pads are still essentially brand new.

Nice pic, BTW.
