05 Chevy 1500 Silverado Z71. Not sure what to make of these pads yet. They were installed 6/16. On 6/21 It was 100F out. After I stopped hard in heavy traffic the pedal got soft and the pads were smoking. The surface of the rotors turned blue. I had tried to bed them in after installation and drove the truck in light traffic for 5 days before this happened.They should have been fully broken in by then. The pedal came back and the blue is gone from the rotors now. It also seems to stop very well now. Not sure yet. I'll inspect at 500 miles and see what everything looks like. I may go with Raybestos or Hawk, if I need to.

      Comments about Carquest Wearever Gold Ceramic Brake Pads (4-Pad Set):

      Purchased these in june 2016 and have not installed yet. The pads (MADE IN iNDIA) are thick and look good, but the box smelled of dead fish
      so bad that I had to leave it outside. I have used
      these pads before on an 03 tahoe. They performed
      very nicely and that box did not stink.

          Comments about Carquest Wearever Gold Ceramic Brake Pads (4-Pad Set):

          Brake pads are normally one of the easiest items to replace on a vehicle. This particular set was the most difficult in that they did not just slide right in to the channels. I had to grind away some of the flange material on the pads to make them fit. They were about .001 too large to one side on all the pads. These had to be wrongly packaged. Close, but no cigar!

                  A:

                  Ceramic brake pads last longer than semi-metallic. They can take slightly more abuse. They leave minimal brake dust, and the dust that is left is less noticeable-a nice complement to chrome and alloy wheels. Ceramic brakes need to warm up a little before they attain the grip of semi-metallic pads. Semi-metallic brake pads have better grip than ceramic when cold. Brake dust is much more apparent in semi-metallic brake pads.
