How often are you forced into changing yours due to corrosion?

The Trophy is a second car but still gets used a few times a week. Regardless, I find the rear discs especially always end up corroding quite badly.

Fronts at the minute are apparently a bit corroded on the inside too, plenty of life left in the pads. The 'bite' to the pedal isn't really there now when braking hard, even after a good few stops from speed.

Obviously the heavy front brake bias won't help matters with the rears but has anyone had any joy in staving this off by making sure the car doesn't go too long between a few hard stops, say 60-20mph repeated a few times?

Seems like mine are now past the point of no return and will need replaced.

I had to change my fronts on the cup last month. The outside surface of the disc was perfect but inside on drivers side was like surface if moon. Daft thing is that it’s not an mot fail if it meets braking efficiency.

The rears on mine were well rusty before I changed them last week, but they could have been the first set.
