How much longer will my brakes hold up

I got my inspection on Friday and I have 5/32s on my front and 4/32s on my rear brakes. The mechanic said I should replace them soon, but I'm pretty sure it's not until 2/32 that it's not legal, so I declined.

I just bought new tires which put a nice hole in my bank account and we might be moving into a larger place and the deposit stuff will put another dent in my account.

So how long do you think they can last and I can still be safe?

new pads are $35 a pair. Search around for resurfacing costs.

Anyways mine petered out at 45k miles. Lots of pad left but the vibration
was driving me crazy.

Crab Intakes CAB, MPD Ram Air hood, Custom exhaust,
WAMS High Performance Tune and a whole lot more....

I would replace them before they get too bad and you'll need your rotors plained.
