Porwer Disks

Once the grooves have disappear you would have 4mm lip on the rim (both sides added together) and if you replace the pads then the new ones would not sit flat on the disk reducing braking power for the first 20-30 miles by 70%. So they are as good indicators for disk replacement as the lip.
