These pads are great on my 2001 Grand Prix. I always choose the gold pads for any car I work on, whether it's mine or a friends. The only complaint I have is that on this pair there was some extra material on the ears of the pads where they fit into the caliper cradle. I had to file it down before I put them in. Not a common proble, but it happens once in a while. I use these pads mostly because I have never had a problem with them making noise. That's what most people complain about when you use cheap brake pads.

          If your looking for an aftermarket alternative for brake pads these are the way to go! I have the same ones installed on my 2011 Nissan Altima and the are holding up really well. They have been installed for over 2 years and are still at least 80% pad life. They are very quiet, low brake dust and come with the brake hardware pad slide clips which is very important to braking performance and pad life. I just installed this set on my dads 2001 Buick LeSabre and they installed with ease and where a perfect, high quality fit.

                I ordered the ceramic pads, pretty much to get the new slides. The new slides are great - they brakes engage and release without a sound. I like the ceramic pads since my rotors weren't in perfect condition, but the pads broke-in nicely and give good breaking even with the less than optimal rotors.

                    A:

                    Proper Brake Pad Bedding (or Break-In Procedure) is essential to the performance and longevity of your new brakes. Taking the time to properly bed in your brake pads will allow them to perform at their full potential. The complete bedding in of brake pads is a process that usually takes between 300-500 miles depending on the type of driving you do, but following the recommended procedure directly after installation is of utmost importance. In simple terms, bedding your brake pads allows the pads to mate with the rotors uneven surfaces. Even brand new brake rotors are covered with microscopic scratches, grooves, and imperfections that must be worn down to create as much surface area as possible for the pads to come in contact with. As your brake pads bed in, they contour to fit every imperfection in the rotors. BELOW ARE BASIC INSTRUCTIONS TO HELP BED IN YOUR BRAKE PADS AND ROTORS CORRECTLY: 1). Immediately after installation, you will notice that the first few stops on your new brakes will result in very little braking power. Be careful not to apply the brakes hard enough to overheat the pads or rotors and be very careful not to drive in traffic right away. 2). Bring the vehicle up to 60 mph and lightly apply the brakes a few seconds at a time to bring them up to temperature. Do not try to stop the vehicle at this time, only to start to bed them in and get them to operating temperature. 3). After getting them warmed up, make a series of 8-10 near-stops. Do this by firmly pressing the brake pedal from about 60 mph down to about 10 mph not allowing the vehicle to come to a complete stop. If you allow the vehicle to come to rest, you run the risk of allowing hot brake pad material to imprint to the rotors and inhibit the bed in procedure. Allow a minute or two between near-stops to help regulate brake temperatures. After you have completed these near-stops drive the vehicle at road speed long enough to allow the brakes to cool down, and repeat the series of 8-10 near stops again. 4). For the next few hundred miles drive normally, trying not to overheat them. Repeated high speed stops will increase the risk of damaging brake pads and rotors permanently, so extra care during break in is recommended. 5). To see how your bedding progress is going, look through your wheel spokes at the brake rotors. In the beginning stages of break in, you will notice uneven and even rough areas on the brake rotors. As break in is completed the rotors will become increasingly smooth and shiny, until they are completely smooth in appearance.(After the break-in cycle, there should be a slight blue tint and a light gray film on the rotor face. The blue tint tells you the rotor has reached break-in temperature and the gray film is pad material starting to transfer onto the rotor face. The best braking occurs when there is an even layer of pad material deposited across the rotors. This minimizes squealing, increases braking torque, and maximizes pad and rotor life.).
                    For compatibility of this part with your vehicle, please provide your vehicle make, model and engine specification.
