Brake pads not contacting the whole rotor?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is a "trouble shooting" issue, or if this is normal or common, but I was rotating my tires on my 2018 at 15,000 miles and noticed on the front brakes, the inside pads on both sides are not rubbing their full width on the rotor.  I would guess that maybe only half the pad width is contacting the rotors (there's a good 3/4" band on each side of the pad width that isn't contacting so there is a "skinny" contact circle in the middle of the rotor.

The driver side rear rotor is doing same thing, except it is on the outside facing side of the rotor.  The passenger side rear brake seems to be ok with it's contact patch (goes up to within an 1/8" or so of the edge of the rotor all the way across).

Anyone seen this on their truck?

Checked the caliper guid pins and make sure they move freely.
