ty at 30K and47K!
No record that pads were replaced at either of these Stealer warranty servi=

I bought the car in the summer of =9196 with about 60K on it.
 6/97 I first replaced the OEM pads (Jurid 526FE) with Jurid aftermarket pa=
ds (Jurid 571562J). Mileage not recorded, maybe 80K.
9/98 at 100K did a 4 corner caliper overhaul and measured UFO run out, both=
 sides at 0.0012=94 TIR, no problems.
8/05 replaced UFO pads with Textar 21219 (turned out to be re boxed OEM pad=
s (Jurid 526FE) at half the Stealer=91s price)

So my rotors currently have only about 175K on them, not the indicated 225K=
. But they have had 125K on them since they both indicated 0.0012=94 TIR, s=
o I would guess that they have worn to less than half that runout by now. M=
aybe I'll measure again when I change back to winter wheels.

FYI, the generic FMSI number for UFO pads is #MKD467. Auto Zone and Bendix =
both go by that number.
