    Yeah, just not sure how I'd take them to get resurfaced since this is my only car.

    There are several Les Schwab Tire Canters in the Denver area. That's where I went.

    Front brakes on the CX5 are not challenging. One thing that threw me though was that the front brakes do not use any type of brake pad "spring" (wishbone or spreader) to pull the brake pad back away from the rotor. Just pads and anti rattle clips...done!
