I bought a set of back up wheels from Ebay. 8 speed Dura Ace hubs laced to Mavic Open Pro Ceramic rims. Since I will be only ocassionally riding these wheels. Can I get away with leaving my standard brake pads on?
Yep, but.......JS

those rims will eat standard pads really quickly.

Went through a set of pads in only a few hundred miles with some of the older Reflex ceramic rims. Sold them ASAP and went back to the regular SUP style and never looked back.

Get a pair of ceramic pads from Cool stop and run them for a few hundred miles. Once the ceramic coating is smoothed out (it is real rough when new) you will be able to go back to regular pads with no problems or extra wear
