Depends on your driving. I can get pads to last 40k miles if I'm ***** cat gentle. Drag racing not anywhere close to that. My daughter gets about 10k before they rattle your dentures out of your mouth. She gets them HOT... and then sits at the light melting the pads to the rotors.

My '09 R/T has over 198,500 miles. I've gone through 2 water pumps, 1 alternator, and 1 oil pressure sensor. Not bad at all, especially considering how hard I am on it.

If weight had anything to do with it...then my 2013 JGC would need major servicing at 20k. It' has +100k on it now and the only things that have gone bad are 2 water pumps and an evap purge solenoid hose. Even the brakes lasted up to 70k (slight pulsing but only on highway which I finally could not live with).

Ok so you guys think that the 6 piston front Brembo rotors as well as the 4 piston rear rotors will last 45,000 to 50,000 miles "easy" if the Wide Body Scat Pack is driven normally like a regular car without beating on it and without making abrupt stops and without drag racing, ect., ect..? And what about the front and rear brake pads? The same?

I mean weight should have something to do with it. More weight requires more stopping force. I guess a lot of factors come into play like quality of the pads how hard you brake and all that noise. I’d say between 40-50k is the average for good brakes.

I had the TIC on my 2012 1500 HEMI - It was a manifold gasket covered under warranty. Have 130,000 miles on the truck no real issues - 13,000 on my 2018 Challenger + that the wife drives - no issues.

61,500 miles on my '13 R/T with no known issues. I purchased it early March, 2017, with about 35,000 miles on it so I've no idea the work, if any, done prior to my purchase.

This matter has been researched and discussed many times on this forum. According to the research we have done and the consensus we've come up with, the 6 piston lifespan can be hard to gauge. I've read that dealerships have recommended full replacement of pads and rotors in as little as about 28k miles. I've seen other guys go that far with very little wear on the rotors.
I got out the calipers and measured all four of my rotors at around 20k miles if I recall. What I did find was that the front rotors on my 2015 SRT392 were wearing approximately twice as fast as the rears. This is actual data and can help you to gauge how long the rotors will last. The best way to guess your rotor life is to measure your rotors right now. Any competent brake shop in town can do this for you. Without this info, it's a shot in the dark. Some have said that under normal conditions, 40-50k can be expected out of the rotors. Other's have predicted that they should last through two full sets of factory pads. However even if rotors can be expected to last through two sets of factory pads, we can't be sure how long two sets of pads will actually last, at least not in miles... It is so dependent on how you drive. But there's another factor. What if you get rid of the factory pads? Some have done this after reading the info we've provided on this forum about the high rate of wear caused by the factory pads.

If your concerned about rotor life consider this: we talked to the engineers at powerstop about the 6 piston Brembo's. We were told that the factory semi metallic pads produced excessive dust and were extra hard on rotors. They recommended Z23 or Z26 for street applications when the goal was low dust and better rotor wear. I chucked all my factory pads immediately and replaced them with Z23's. Haven't had an issue since. However, I've not remeasured my rotors yet. "The jury" is still out on how long this 6 piston rotors can last when using Z23's. That will take some time. But I'll go with what the engineers said. The man I spoke with at Powerstop had three mechanical engineering degrees and rattled off a series of numbers and brake pad compounds and heat range data that just boggled my mind. No way to remember it all, but I walked away understanding that the man knew what he was talking about. I figure he's much more likely to be right about things like pad compound and rotor wear than most of us could ever be. He told me if it were his car and rotor life was the goal, he'd get rid of the factory pads ASAP. That was good enough for me.

You asked about the lifespan of the front and rear pads. You could buy 15 sets of z23 pads for the cost of just one of those 6 piston two piece rotors. Pad life is insignificant compared to rotor wear.
