I tried using these brake pads on both a 2015 Honda Civic and 2011 Toyota Camry. After both brake jobs, they produced a horrible grinding metal on metal sound. Eventually, after the noise would not go away, I replaced them with a cheap semi metallic brake pad, and have not had any problem with them. Stay away from these pads, they will make a horrible sound and eventally ruin your rotors. Luckily AAP made good on the warranty.

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

    toyota puts more parts in then what im use too. watch out for there being drums under the rear rotors. going to need bolts "two" to screw into the rotors to get them off. yes that is front and rear. knowing this will save you time.
    over all pads are acceptable, more then duralast. friend's father had rotors and brake pads done and all they did was rub. Getting the parts from advance My friend had no problem with the equipment i used or install. there was no road noise to his car.Both where toyota.

    Pros

      Cons

      • Brass particles already marking the rotor.
      • Pad wear surface is smaller than OEM

      Best Uses

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

        I'm concerned that while promoted as premium ceramic, large brass particles will cause grooves in the rotor. These large particles were not present in the Toyota OEM pads.
        Only tested on local short trips. I'll check after 1,000 miles before making a definite recommendation.

                  A:

                  Hi Steph, glad to help you! 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.
