    Thanks, I'll keep that in mind when it comes time for the rear brakes. As they are now, after 78K miles it looks like there is still 70% pad left. Fronts, on the other hand, are just about done.

    Sometimes when there is big difference is pad wear, their is a bias issue, front vs, rear.

    The rear's generally out last the fronts 2:1 on most cars. I do not know enough about the Fiat to say if this is true of not for the 500.

    Do you have a temp gun? If so, make some hard stops in your 500, then jump out and shoot the rotors. The temps should be similar, with the rears being a tad cooler.

    If the rear's are cold, you just found out why they are wearing so well....

    The fronts are doing all the work!

    Brake pulsation is not usually an actual rotor warping problem. Instead when you clamp pads against hot rotors you can transfer material from the pads into the surface of the iron, creating dendrites in the iron. These materials are raised from the surface slightly and very hard - they do not wear like the iron does, so you end up with lumps on the surface. Better iron alloys are more resistant. There are articles on the web about this issue.

    If you want some really good brake pads, made in America. Very little brake dust. I recommend the cer EBC Red Stuff. I’ve tied the Green Stuff one, they are really dirty. My alloy wheels are 10 years old. Still look brand new. The Mopar OEM ones are dust free too. The EBC are just better brakes. All EBC’s have a break in compound, that actually clean, and Polish out all the grooves and imperfections. Of the rotor surface.

    When you put a dial indicator on the rotor and spin it and watch the needle jump around..... those aren't lumps....

    How tall do you think these "lumps" get? More than 0.010" ?

    Hey, along with some brake dust, I did get these cool stickers.

    Does the EBC box have cool Brembo stickers inside?

    I think not!

    With my EBC pads. I got a couple 500 madness stickers. I gave to one of our club members here. He rally’s his Pop. He loves stickers on his car.

    Clearly you know better, but others might want to learn:

    https://www.mechanic.com.au/news/sol...d-brake-rotors

    https://alconkits.com/support/brake-...d-brake-rotors

    That's just what I found on a quick search but there are better articles out there too.

    Yes, I know how to use a dial caliper and have used them to measure rotor warp - it does happen and can be made much worse with lousy alloys and poor heat treatment, as well as dirty hub surfaces and uneven lug torque. Still, the calipers float and can follow a reasonable amount of warp without bad pulsation. They cannot compensate for variations in thickness or surface deposits.

    Clearly.... I know that a caliper is used to check thickness, and a dial indicator is used to measure runout, or warpage.

    You keyboard warriors, crack me up.....

    I try to do a lil' truthful review of my Brembo brakes so others can decide if they want to go that route, and all I get is grief.

    No wonder this forum was deserted ( with the exception of reposted "Love 500" videos) when I first got here.

    Carry on with your reposted videos and links.....
