The pads are advertised in the specifications as having in excess of .50" of friction material per pad. The pads have about .38" of material and the wear indicators will contact the surface of the rotor at approximately 50% usage of the friction material. Nice going. You get to use 50% of the friction material and then you throw the rest away because your brakes make noise. Either build the pads to the specs or shorten the length of the wear indicators so the drivers can use a greater amount of the friction material safely.

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

    Due to limited time, I opted to have the pads installed by a repair facility, rather than doing the installation on my own. I selected this item based on being OE quality but also weighed in that these are being installed on a vehicle with 198,000 and will need to be "retired" in another year, and a "top of the line wasn't necessary. After driving about 500 miles with the new pads, all seem fine with them, and I haven't experienced any concerns with them, even first thing in the morning, after the vehicle has sat outside overnight.

      I read reviews. Less dust with the gold. Works well with new rotors. One bolt siezed, had to heat to remove it; burned rubber boot. Be careful. I remembered to clean rotors with brake cleaner spray.

        I ordered brakes online they were ready when i got there. Drove back home where vehicle was already in the air popped the new pads in and away we go. less than an hour total including drive time. Brakes fit perfect and so far seem to stop the vehicle the same as the oems.

            These were an exact replacement for my 98 Regal. They were easy to install with no oddball specialty tools. They also satisfied my expectations and needs for my purchase. I'll be back for additional parts in the future. Thanks for offering great parts and prices.

            Bought these pads for my wifes' 2005 Buick Rendezvous. Her old pads left brake dust all over wheels. These pads, after a month of use, we see none of that. Wife has said the brake pedal seems more responsive too, since installing.

                  My back brakes were making noise, so I picked up these pads and for the price, they are good quality. They installed easy and stop great. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is replacing the factory pads on their vehicle.

                        A:

                        I'm happy to help, Bob! The pads are designed to be installed in only one direction, you should not be able to install them upside down. The brake pad should follow the curve of the rotor. Normally, the wear sensor is located on the outer pad. The wear sensor should then be positioned at the trailing or downward edge of the pad when the wheels are turning forward.
