This is how they came in the package. Seems they were planed down, since nothing sticks up, but those rough areas dip down below the level part. I didn't return them since it would have been a pain and I didn't know for sure this isn't normal. And they seem to work fine (for now).
I bought the green Galfers but had not taken them out of the package until now.
Disappointingly, but rear pads look like yours, my front pads look as I would expect - no surface defects.
I'll probably go back to the OEM units unless the life and wear rate on the ROTOR are better.
