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

    I bought these to replace the rear pads in my 2001 VW Jetta when the OEM pads started to squeal (meaning they were worn down so low that the low pad warning tabs were rubbing on the disc). These pads were inexpensive, and I was able to borrow a brake piston compression tool from Advance Auto in order to install them.

    While these pads do not have any ceramic compounds, they are said to be equivalent to the OEM pads. Mine work just fine, and I do have shorted stops than I did with the worn pads. They also do not squeal. They do create some brake dust on your alloys. I find that this cleans off easily with a dilute Simple Green mixture. I might try the platinum pads in the future to see if they generate less dust and any increased stopping performance.

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

    These rear brake pads were a direct replacement on my 2003 VW Passat 4 wheel motion. They were a perfect fit. They looked and installed just like the factory equipment. These installed with ease, no problems what so ever. I did new pads and rotors on the rear. 30 minutes and I drove the car out of the shop. I order these parts online and used discount codes to save $30. I picked up the pads at a local store and the rotors were shipped to my house and delivered by the next day. This was a great experience all the way around. Thanks

      These brake pads were very easy to install. They provide excellent stopping power, and they have worn well in the short time I've had them on my vehicle. They are also quiet and dont squeek. Overall, a good pad and I recommend them.
