1986 560SEL Rear Brakes only

Hello-

How bad is it to ride one of these true 560SEL boats on new rear brakes and low front brakes? Probably a question that answers itself, and still curious.

Thanks in advance

Well seeing as the fronts do 70% or more of the stopping of a car the fronts will need to changed soon. You are not in danger or causing harm (assuming there is adequate pad material in the front). However if you know they are getting low then keeping an eye the fronts would be the best thing to do.

It's not like the brakes for these are particularly expensive or hard to change.
