Slight amount of runout or vibration forces the rotor against the pads without the brake pedal depressed, pushing the pads away from the rotor so that there is dead space between the pads and the rotor the next time you hit the brakes

Rumbles are a big factor. Wheel bearings on a car like this with this much tracking is probably not a dumb idea. The front ones are stupid simple to change too, the rears are a little more involved
