Front/Rear Pads ?

Just fitted Redstuff ceramic pads to front and braided lines front and rear. Rear pads appear to be o/e pads with plenty of life left on them.Do i need to change them though to match front pads or are they ok to leave ?

I have Red Stuff front OE rear and they work fine.

75% of breaking is at the front

Thanks Pete. That was pretty much how i was thinking too. I'll now put the o/e pads back on rear for another few thousand miles and then change them to Redstuff.
What sort of mileage are you getting out of your front pads ?
