I am not a daily driver but love driving.
This pads does work what this should do. As far as I drive moderately, the brake feeling and stopping is as good as OEM. I don't hear any squeek.
The good thing about this is that wheels does not get dirty like OEM brake pad does.

The pads are combination of a pad with clip and 3 pads without clip. I asked at counter the odd number pairing and got exchanged to have 2 clipped and 2 unclipped. It turned out my vehicle does not need any of ones with clip. This was strange experience, however the difference was not matter.

The brakes out of the box had to be tapped in place with a hammer and would not move freely upon brake release. I had to slightly grind the end tab on the top of each of the 4 rear brake pads to allow them to release freely.

        I receive a $5 off coupon every time I order online for local pickup! That and a 20% off coupon that can be used together makes for a really great deal.

        Pads are a great fit, low to zero brake dust, come with an assortment of clips and a lifetime warranty.

            The pads fit right out of the box. You should note that the 'gold' kits do not include new anti-rattle clips or slider pin lube as compared to the 'platinum' level pad kits. This is why only 4 of 5 stars on these pads. After ~1000 miles of driving the pads have remained dead silent and have good grip along with not much brake dust on my wheels. I would expect long life from these pads based on my results so far.

                Hi Dan, good question! The gold series are made with better materials for durability and stopping power when compared to that of silver brake pads and also made so you have less brake dust. The silver brake pads are good though but the gold brake pads are better when compared to that of silver ones.

              • A:

                I have been led to beleive that the 'platinum' pads are a slightly harder material and may last longer. I cannot say for sure in this case, but in my experience, as you move up in cost, the box may also contain additional components like anti-rattle clips, backing-pads or brake-grease.
