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

Went on YouTube for instructions and Advanced Auto had the best prices on great products.
I've never installed brakes on any of my cars. Had I know it was this easy I would have never
paid hundreds of dollars for a job I can do myself for under $50.
You'll never know until you try it yourself.

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

Installation was a breeze. Did not need to modify these pads unlike cheaper pads that I had to file down the tabs to get them to fit. No squeals from these pads. Braking distance is less with less pressure. Hopefully they will last for a while.

    I almost always get clips in the box with pads. These pads did not include the clips for the caliper.

              what does limited lifetime warranty mean? does it mean that i can return them one time for a free replacement?

                A:

                Good question Lukey! The limited lifetime replacement warranty is valid for 90 days from the date of purchase or any longer warranty period that may be printed on your original sales receipt. In addition, you must be the original purchaser of the part and still own the vehicle on which it was installed. This warranty cannot be transferred to anyone at any time. Replacement parts are warranted for 90 days from the date of exchange or the remainder of the warranty period, whichever is longer.

            • Q:

              do the ceramic brakes stop better than semi metallic and metallic brakes?
              Asked on 11/21/2013 by lukey from miami florida

              1 answer

              • CUSTOMER CARE

                A:

                Hi Lukey, great question! Ceramic formula brake pads use ceramic compounds and copper fibers in place of the semi-metallic pad's steel fibers. This allows the ceramic pads to handle high brake temperatures with less heat fade, provide faster recovery after the stop, and generate less dust and wear on both the pads and rotors. And from a comfort standpoint, ceramic compounds provide much quieter braking. Another characteristic that makes ceramic materials attractive is the absence of noticeable dust. All brake pads produce dust as they wear. The ingredients in ceramic compounds produce a light colored dust that is much less noticeable and less likely to stick to the wheels. Consequently, wheels and tires maintain a cleaner appearance longer. Ceramic pads meet or exceed all original equipment standards for durability, stopping distance and noise. According to durability tests, ceramic compounds extend brake life compared to most other semi-metallic and organic materials and outlast other premium pad materials by a significant margin - with no sacrifice in noise control, pad life or braking performance. When choosing brake pads for your vehicle, it is usually a good idea to replace older pads with the same type that were installed by the car maker. Generally speaking, the manufacturer of your vehicle uses pads that are most compatible with the rotors in your car.
