Its been a while since I changed my brakes. This is what greeted me when I finally got the money and time to do it.

The "dust" on my wheels actually turned out to be metal flakes. When it rained the next day, this is what happened: http://img213.exs.cx/img213/9080/pdrm0082small3bp.jpg

Its not like I didnt know that the brakes were worn down. The painful grinding metal noise was a good indicator... I just couldnt afford to fix it. Brembo disk brakes are expensive. Pads for the front and back and rear disks was $185 with shipping.

What the hell am I supposed to do? Not drive? My front brakes worked fine. Stand alone, they are better than most other car's brakes. They are slotted disks with four piston calipers. If I have no money, I can't buy shit. Even if I need it.

I've driven on grinding brakes for a long time before - on the beater buick... when I finally pulled the wheels off, the rotors were ground down at weird angles and the pads were showing the bolts underneath... heh. Can't recommend it!

I had the rear brakes on my Brick grinding a couple of years ago. Drove it one more day, then had them replaced.
