I can understand the rear drum brakes dragging but not the disc brakes !It is almost like the rear brakes are dragging a little bit. You normally go through to sets of front pads before you need a set in the rear.
Say what? Psssssst.... (when traveling forward, braking causes force (m*a) to shift forwardt, where 90% of the braking occurs.)Dutch, the rears are wearing faster than the fronts because the car is rear wheel drive.
One of the problems also is that especially with your tyre sizes, you can't rotate them around the car to even out the wear.
I have the same problem inasmuch as I can't rotate my tyres because of the directional tread pattern.
Please let us know what brand of tyres you fit as replacements, here's a few suggestions Michelin Pilot Sport, the Continental Extreme Contact and Pirelli PZeros all will work well with a CLS 55

Dutch, you are absolutely correct in that the fronts are expected to wear at 2-3 times the rate of rears. I have heard stories similar to yours, but they are few and far between.
