    Default uneven brake wear ?

    after doing my brakes round at Eds one day. have felt that they were not as good as before. now this is more due to cheap discs and pads. but i thought id take a look today. one is wearing on full disc the other is only bitting part of the disc. am i worried over nothing ?

    One of the common causes of warping is the overheating of the discs. This can be down to the brake 'sticking' or constantly touching the disc. Maybe a faulty caliper mate, not sure

    I wonder if the Two faces of the disc are parralell to each other. They will need to be checked with a micrometer to see if there is any error.

    That's fine mate, just go to the parts people and ask for a set of discs and fit them and i'd send the old ones back and say that they are defects
