I've directly mounted a set of Tektro HD-M735 to some Rockshox Yaris but the caliper needs to go inwards maybe 3-4mm. This is a 180mm rotor which is the same as what it came with originally, the only difference being the standard fork used a packer.

Look in the top of the caliper and see if the pads are overhanging the outer edge of the rotor, if they aren't overhanging the rotor, there isn't a problem.

The wear pattern on rotors doesn't always mean there's a problem, some rotors have a wide braking area and some brakes use a narrow type pad, a wide rotor used with a narrow pad would show a similar wear pattern like your photos.

The Tektro page for your brakes, shows the 4 piston brake uses a narrower pad then the 2 piston brake.

The pads are fitted correctly and the wear pattern is different on the back(runs close to the inner section with holes), 180mm also with the Tektro caliper.

I'm not questioning if the pads are fitted correctly, I'm just asking you to look in the top of the caliper and see if the outer edge of the pad is overhanging the outer edge of the rotor, if it isn't overhanging, there isn't a problem.



There is different sizes of pads and rotors.
If you use a narrow type pad with a wide type rotor, it will leave a smaller wear pattern then a wide pad.

The outer edge of the pad is just in line with the outer edge of the rotor, think its all good then.

Thanks
