Hey, new here just wondering if there was such thing as a guard for your disc brakes so you don't bend them. I've already got bit of a wobble and it is probably only going to get worse. Don't know is anybody else has this problem, or i should just be more carefull.

be more carefull, your concern is ligitimate but there's really not much you can do

you could try this product....
Looks ok but i think that is for motocross, i've come to the conclusion that a.) i will have to be more carefull b.) bet better quality discs/thicker or c.) make a guard out of some 6000 grade aluminium with friends mill. and could the discs rubbing on the pads decrease pad life considerably a.ka should i replace discs

Its not for motocross, and its not made to protect from bending. There are no products made to protect the disc from getting bent, you would have to make your own. A thicker disc wont only not help, but it wouldent work period. If the discs are rubbing, adjust the calipers.

If they have a "wobble" in them it could also be caused by excessive heat. Riding the brakes while descending is usually the culprit. Also, unless you are crashing alot or riding in deep ruts all the time it is probably not from impact.
