Coasting to a stop or downshifting instead of brakes saves wear and tear on brakes. You won't ever get a warped rotor that way too. What you are doing is part of an advance driving technique. That's how you save gas and wear and tear.
Unless you don't rpm match when you downshift, most people I see that downshift seriously abuse there clutch because they are unaware. I always tell them, "remember, Brakes are cheaper than a new clutch"
