Brake manufacturers recommend using a special grease. Castrol Red Rubber Grease being one example.

Are the discs worn either having a lip on the outer edge or a radious at the inner edge where it meets the centre hub?
so why is it most brake pads come with a small sachet of copper grease when bought would have thought if it was a problem they wouldnt supply it
