Quick question. I bought ceramic brake pads so I wouldnt ever have to worry bout doing them again, and I just took the brakes and caliper back off because seemed like caliper was stuck and not opening like it should. Anyways the brakes are worn at the tips of the pads only, I have never seen this, but I am assuming its something from the caliper? Am I correct to think so, and is this normal for ceramics?

Ok, first of all, you will be replacing them again as they are not forever brakes.

Check the caliper bolts as they are most likly seized and not sliding. Make sure they are free to move
