Gen6 Brake pad mm thickness??

So I got my car serviced from Toyota a couple weeks back.

On the invoice, it lists the thickness in mm's of the brake pads.

Right now I have 9mm thickness in the front and 10mm thickness in the rear. I tried to do a search, and I forgot to ask the dealer this while I was there, at what thickness would you have the pads changed??

Thanks for all input.

Front - new 12 mm, 1 mm minimum
Rear - new 11 mm, 1 mm minimum

9mm and 10 mm are the same as .9cm and 1.0 cm. An inch is 2.5cm. Your pads sound as if they are about new! No worries for a while>

Sweet guys. Thanks for the replies. I am just used to driving an SUV before the Camry, when I had to change the break pads every 6 months or so.

Why a centimeter conversion to try to tell him he has good brake pads?
