Replacing pads and rotors at what mileage?

I have 38K miles on my car and i was just curious as to when most of you were getting your brake pads(and rotors) changed under warranty by the dealer?

with just street use your rotors will just be changed at minimum thickness which takes a lot of use. i ran my fronts rotors for almost 30k miles and 20 plus track days. changed the pads every 2-3 track days. you can just look thru your wheel and see how much pad is left and make that determination fairly easily.

I've only had 2 track days, but i drive pretty hard on the street too, so at 38K miles i was thinking i'd be close for a change.

I put 30k miles on my car (two track days), and changed front pads at 30k. Rotors were getting there, but not ready for change.

Rear pads coming up in about 4k.

Cheers
