These pads were very easy to install and I'm very happy with their performance. They are an exact fit, the pad material is very thick, and they are well manufactured. This is my first set of ceramic pads and I look forward to seeing if that cuts down on brake dust. For one very minor down side, for the first 10 or 20 stops, there was a smell from the pads as they broke in. That passed very quickly. I'd buy these again if I had it to do over again.

These pads are easy to install and I assumed since they are ceramic they would be both durable and low dust. I am here to tell you they are neither. The EBC Green Stuff pads I use on track give less dust and are quieter than these. These act like racing pads as they wear quickly. These pads went on my f150. I do not tow or drive stop and go. Most is around town and highway. The pads lasted 1 year and 14,500 miles. I have never had pads so short lived. There was even wear and no other component issues. They just wore out. Don't buy. I am trying the Platinum pads now. I got a refund for the pads and then upgraded.

Eh, not the quality I've had on previous Wearever products.

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

Like others have said the brakes just don't fit. It's like the engineers didn't take into account the layer of paint on the pads because once that is removed from the tabs they fit just fine. See how long it take them to rust into place now that I had to do that. As for squeaking/dusting I haven't had an issue so they seem fine in that regard.

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

I had to file down the wings where the clips attach to the brakes because it just didn't fit. All of the wings were a different size and needed attention before installation. I probably wouldn't buy this product again

          These are the worst pads I have ever owned. Super dirty and noisy. Going back to get the semi metallic pads.

          Replaced the stock brakes and rotors about 5000 miles ago and my wheels are the dirtiest I've ever seen them and the brakes are squeaking already. Replacing these with another brand, I can't take the brake dust or squeaking any longer.

                • Q:

                  I purchased a set of Wearever brake pads(GNAD1414) for my F150 last May. They still have 10mm pad left but have developed cracks on both sides (Front). I sure hope they are covered by a warranty, but are not sure about using them. Please respond.
