Brake suggestions ?

My front stoptech discs are developing enough of a lip to warrant a new set methinks...the xp8s still have life in them ,but will get new ones anyway .
Ian the tyrannicalmesiter will need a call
Happy enough with the stoptech discs ( slotted) but any other suggestions ? Not liking for race bred monsters as only fast road tbh and not spending the nations GDP on them
Any and all opinions wellkommen ..even random abuse

Try measuring actual thickness first....perhaps they are still way in recomended range(if so just get them skimmed) and you can use whats left of the pads

29.8mm is min. if my memory serves me well.

If you've not had squeal from the Carbotechs on those Stoptech discs it might be a good idea to stick with them........

In the initial /early days few years ago I did have the on board pig squealing
They are mostly quiet now ...must be the silver spec abuse
