I agree with the above. Use your old pads!!! This is a must to bed in new rotors. 5K miles on your pads means they are practically still new. I just bedded in new Brembo rotors with my stock pads and everything is perfect, no glazing, warping, ect. This will not hurt your rotors at all. Follow the proper bedding/seasoniong in procedures. Do a search and you will find thousands of threads on this. I agree with tigerdrvr, I dont know where this other information has come from but it's not a good idea. :cheers:tigerdrvr said:Don't know where you guys are getting your information, but this is worth reading
Quote from article:
" If possible, new discs should be bedded with used pads of the same compound that will be used going forward."
The idea is that the pads will have already gone through the process of releasing bonding resins and other residuals from the first bedding in process, will have already established the taper due to caliper design to create a good relationship to the rotor surface and will be more effective in "seasoning" the new rotor.
New pads, old rotors
Old pads, new rotors
