    Does the use of these result in significantly higher disc wear, please?

    After 40,000 miles there's plenty of meat left on the pads, 8 mm minimum on the front, but they'll soon need replacing.
    Don't force it - get a bigger hammer!

    Thank you. But my question is "do they significantly increase disc wear?"
