Re: Odd break disc wear

Check your pads are free in the calipers and calipers are moving freely.
Mickey could well be right and this is a function of rust when standing too long but that it is worse on inside then out makes me wander if everything is moving freely?
Pads, caliper slides?

Worth an overhaul/service of brakes before investing in new bits IMO.

Whether new discs are needed depends on how bad the pitting is, getting things freed up and a few days use may well sort it.
A good rub over with wire wool may well hasten things along.

Does want sorting though, brakes are your best friends.
