By the look of them they were pretty low. The cracking may have been caused by heat from the backing plate. A lot of elcheapo pads crack too, as they don't have the asbestos any more to help dissapate the heat, and their technology hasn't caught up yet with the better names.

Pads should be changed when the pad thickness is about the same as the backing plate thickness
