      12 s60 front brakes don’t wear out

      Hi guys,

      I have a 12 s60 T5 and my front brakes and rotors are perfect and original on the car. I am on my second rear brakes and have the same mm (Las changed a year ago) as the original front brakes (7mm) - any technical reasons you can think of for this happening? I think it’s great but just never seen something like this - I recently replaced Brake fluid about a month ago myself and saw rotors and brakes in front were perfect.

      These cars are rear biased
      Cars are pulled to a stop from the rear brakes
      My s80 goes rears wear out 2 to 3 times faster than front set
