If they need replacing, then replace them. There are so many variables to consider that there is no answer.

As far as the pads...i check them every once in a while and make sure the brake cam itself hasn't worn too bad into the backside of the bad and also take note of the actual holes wanting to round up over time.....Its imo wise to have a spare.

Get the black disc brakes. I run my brakes for a year.

Cool. I have the black ones. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't something needing to be changed often.
