Brake pad replacement?

I uploaded pics of the drivers front, drivers rear, and passenger front brake pads. Approximately how much longer you think I can get out of them if I want to preserve the rotors?

When you guys did replace them, did you go OEM (brembos)?

I'd suggest "just before" the metal wear indicators start scrapping your rotors....

For street driving, just before the squealers is fine. For Autocross when 1/3 of the pad is left. For Road Course at half pad.
