    My last set of full-metallic disc brakes lasted 50,000 miles. Let's see how long these semi-metallics will last.

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

      I ordered front brake pat for my toyota camry car online, but when I install it, the size is bigger than the original and I went local store(different store) to exchange it, but the rep disagree to change it and just want to refund my purchase and buy another size to match my car in which I need to pay regular price again fro this part. The part itself is working well for my car, but I really don't understand why the polcy don't allow the customer to change it or store just want make a little money for the part.
      I like the part, but I don't like the service for this transaction.
      What is right policy?
      I ordered part from online and pickup from local store which will me save some money and easy to order the part.
      It may happen that part is not right part if order from online. I will double check it when I pick it up from local store.

        Good Product

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

        Put these in my Toyota Sienna minivan and was pleasantly surprised at the performance of these pads and after a 1000 miles there is zero brake dust on my wheels. These outperform a set of more expensive brand name pads that cost double that I have in another car.

            A:

            Hi Bugs! I researched on our website and I am unable to locate a matching rear semi - metallic brake pads with this front semi - metallic brake pads for your 1995 Toyota Avalon online. However, we have an alternate Wearever Gold Ceramic Brake Pads - Rear (4-Pad Set) - part# GNAD672 which would be an exact fit for your vehicle.
