    Gday, as the title states I am using JDM Rotors on ADM Calipers.

    QFM make pads with 3mm less material to achieve this...

    but what if im stingy & currently have pads that may be worn enough to fit the JDM rotors now?

    Well the info you need is that a regular ADM pad is 14mm thick new & to fit the JDM rotors ur pads must be 11mm Thick.

    I couldnt find this info anywhere so I thought Id share.

    Happy corolla'ing

    Good post, quick question though do you know how much of the backing plate is taken up of this Height and how much is actual pad material?
