    Default rear pads ready for changing?

    wipped the wheels off tonight to check how much meat left on the pads, fronts were fine but i must admit im a bit flumaxed by the rear.
    see pics, do they need changing, ive never seen pads this colour yellowey looks like a wine bottle cork) im used to seeing it a dark colour, so is this pad material or it it backing ?

    any input is a help before i start pricing up pads.

    if this is justa a brand of pads and im being a muppet feel free to abuse me

    You've got about half a pad left on both of them mate. But the inside pads do tend to wear faster than the outside, so I'd be looking at them.
