    Do these brake pads look worn to you?

    Saw this on eBay and the seller is listing them as NEW! Perhaps it's just me but I don't know who in the right mind would even believe that.

    They look like take-offs to me. Not really worn, but definitely they have been installed in a brake pad holder

    seller says they are take-offs
    We just don’t realize the most significant moments of our lives when they’re happening
    Back then I thought “well there'll be other days”
    I didn’t realize that was the only day

    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?
    One.
    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

    In the photo I am looking at the braking surface looks new. If you are concerned probably shouldn't bid.

    they look just as the seller says, new but previously installed in a pad holder. doesn't look like the they have ever been use at all. but you're probably right...i'm sure it's some kind of conspiracy theory at work here.

    They look like new (unused) take offs, based on the black on the dovetail area.

    Question, if you don't trust the seller's claims about the condition, why would you even consider dealing with him at all?

    Roger that. On the pads I've used, I thought the small vertical lines are the wear indicators which are usually pretty deep.
