Purchased these for my 2002 Hyundai Elantra in conjunction with new Right and Left Wearever Gold Rotors. One of the old pads delaminated and ruined one rotor. Replaced both to remain constant even though lots of life on good rotor. Rust always build up in the cooling slots so I find consistant braking performance if they age at the same rate. I have used Wearever Gold before and they hold up pretty good. I needed to touch up the pads steel base with a file so as to make it fit in the slots. Only a couple strokes is all it took. No problems after that. Fit was great. Function was great. Just remember to clean all surfaces with Brake Part Cleaner before wrapping the job up. With new rotors and pads in front the car gained more pedal and better stopping.

These brake pads have a tab on the convex edge which prevents the caliper from seating properly. It is called an "exact fit," but it is not (at least for the 2002 Elantra GLS). I had to obtain brake pads elsewhere. Those fit perfectly (no tab) and have worked well. I can't comment on performance but the disappointment of discovering the incompatibility after the stores are closed deserves a 1 star for this vehicle model.

      These couldn't have been easier to install and they fit perfect. No noise and the pedal feels great. Ordering these pads and the rotors I spent $90, the brake place wanted $215. These ate up less than hour to install.

      Easy to install. Quiet and minimal brake dust. I usually buy silver. This is the first time I purchased the gold. Definately worth the slight difference in price to upgrade to gold. Very satisfied

        I used these brake pads on a daily commuter car, and they seem to be as good as OEM parts! I will use them again as well as recommend them to someone else. I know in some cases that some "aftermarket" replacement parts have to be modified in some ways to either fit or operate properly, in this case no modifications needed, which made the repair/replacement simple and less time to complete!

                These are definitely worth the modest price increase over the cheaper pads. No noise, little dust that I can see so far. I will use these again next time over the cheaper pads that I usually buy.
