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

    They said that I didn't need to put any brake quiet silicone on the pads, but they are making noise every now and then, so I am going to take them off and put on some quiet gel and then put them back together. Not a big deal, but I wish I had done it the first time.

      Gold pad not worth the gold price

      By 

      from Middle of Nowhere, Virginia

      Pros

      • Easy To Install

      Cons

      • Creates Poor Pedal Feel
      • High pedal effort
      • Not worth price
      • Warped the rotors

      Best Uses

      • Everyday Driving

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

      I installed these pads on reconditioned rotors; In two weeks the rotors warped and the vehicle shuddered badly. High pedal effort was needed compared to original equipment pads. In general, they provided lackluster performance and were a hassle. Resurfacing the rotors again and using Wagner ceramic pads from Advance Auto Parts proved to be a superior solution.
