I just noticed that the 2 fron

I just noticed that the 2 front brake rotors on my '85 308 have significant wear groves on them--as if the pads were worn down and something was scraping/rubbing them. However, I have about half of the pads' life left, they're original, and I get no syptoms of malfunction whatsoever such as noise, pulsation, or anything. In other words, the brakes work perfectly. The rears, however, have no marks on them at all. Is this typical or do you think I have a problem somewhere? Could some other 308 owners look at their rotors and let me know if theirsshow the same pattern

Hi Bill,

Hi Bill,

sounds normal to me.

The fronts exert more brake pad pressure than the rears to keep the car stopping in a striaght line better under hard/panick braking and for the average driver. That and a little harder pad/softer rotor equates to the end results you see. Those grooves are actually a good thing just by themselves, grooves = more surface area.

As long as the car stops fine with no anomolies, everything sounds A-OK.

Regards, JRV
