Front discs - when to replace?

In my Accord 2.0 Sport, 2004., the steering wheel shakes a bit during light braking, when I brake harder, it stops. So, front braking discs may be worn. How exactly can I be sure, what is the normal width of front discs on this model (2003-2008 model, 2.0l with 155 PS), and what is the minimal width? Also, how can I tell when braking pads need replacing?

Thanks everybody.

Sounds more like you need your tracking done to be honest

Think you may be right, especially since I've done 70000 km with these discs and I'm not a very sporty driver.

Oh, and for anyone else with a similar concern, in the meantime I found that the normal front disc width is 25 mm, and it needs replacing at 23 mm.
