As far as the fronts are concerned, I think you're at that awkward point where you could justify both waiting, and servicing now.

I prefer grouping my services with oil changes... So the question for me would be "do I replace pads now, or next oil change?" I keep records of my inspections so I'd have several data points showing the rate of pad wear. I'd chart these data points to see if I expected to be above 3mm thickness on my next oil change + tire rotation. If so, I'd do the service with my next oil change. However, if the data indicates I am likely to go under my minimum thickness threshold, then I would do the service "now".

I would wait myself especially if you have not heared any squealing when applying brakes. The metal clips are there to warn you that its time when they make contact!
I have a new opinion on this one. I will not hold off again. Sometimes life gets in the way and by the time you can get to it the weather doesn’t cooperate and all of a sudden you are metal to metal with rapid uneven wear because of a suck caliper pin.

Getting all that rust off my black winter rim was not fun. I will forever change me pads when .25 is left to remove any possibility of the above happening to me again.
