Most pads have wear indicators on them. But I would generally change them at 1/4 inch.
The situation you want to avoid is to let them wear to the point that they cause rotor grooves, or other wear.
Decent pads are generally $20 or so, and Wagner or other high end pads with wear warranty's are in the $40-60 range, I could tell you some story's about brake pads/rotor wear :).
The measurement is pad, not pad and backing.
