Thats true but supertar are cheap as you suggest and they had to start somewhere too.

They would be just a stop gap really so buying twice anyway i guess.

i'd say buy them and see how it goes - if you are worried about them not stopping you, fit to the rear first and see how it goes.

Thats what i was thinking, if they didnt stop me, id soon realise.
If they wont stop glazing over halfway through their life, not much money lost.

Would love to try some ebc pads but my tightass syndrome means i cannot!
