Great Product at a Good Price

Ordered these brake pads late one evening on the internet and picked them up at Advanced Auto Parts the next morning. Had them installed in about 30 minutes. Couldn't ask for better service!

well...

2 of the 4 pads went in nicely. The third pad took a little work. The fourth pad required LOTS of grinding and filing. LOTS. Thank goodness I was at a friend's...Read complete review

Good brakes for the money

By 

from Waverly NE

Verified Buyer

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

I've spent over 3x the price of these at the dealer for factory pads that last about 90k. Even towing an enclosed 6x12 and open 7x12 trailer with 2k lbs of equipment several days a week, I get 45-50k out of them.

Once I install them, i take them out and bed them to the rotors. After the initial drive, the stopping power is amazing. They are quiet, and I don't get a ton of dust on my chrome wheels, or on our vehicles with the aluminum "almost white" wheels.

As far as reviewers saying they had to file or grind to fit, you probably have corrosion and dust built up on the caliper that needs cleaned off under where the tin guides mount. I have 358k today on my Colorado, and never once had to grind a pad in 4 sets on this truck alone, not including countless others I've done using the same brand/level pads on other vehicles.

            Wearever Gold Ceramic Brake Pads are a lot better than my OEM brake pads. Remover of the OEM pads were hard because the inside pad of both the driver side and passenger side were struck. Installing the new pads was a breeze.

              • Q:

                I bought Wearever gold brake pads & rotors for my 2006 Colorado. There is too much material on the pads I can't get the caliper to fit over them. I see in the reviews where people said they filed or ground the pads to make them fit. Is this normal? It seems these should fit without the headaches I'm seeing. Any suggestions? BTW, I used a C clamp to push the pistons back. I opened to bleed screw to be sure they are pushed back as far as they can go.

                  A:

                  Hi Deb, glad to assist you! This part comes with a limited lifetime replacement warranty. The limited lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 days time frame. After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid for the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle.
