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

      Bought theae to replace the worn out brakes on my daughter's car. She drives hard and fast. There has been no issues at all for installation or stopping since install. She waits to the last minute to stop and they stop great. No squeaking or grinding noises since installed. Great dust control too. She keeps her car clean and shiny and since these pads were installed she hasn't had to do much at all to keep her wheels sparkling in the sunlight. These are great replacement pads, I definitely recommend them to friends and family for replacing theirs.

                        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.
