The OEM front brakes on my 2007 Dodge Magnum SXT developed a pretty nasty shimmy so I got these along with new Wherever rotors. They installed easily with no issues. Been running them for a little over a year. I've been very impressed with how smooth and quiet they are. They also have really good stopping power. The only reason I didn't give them five stars is that they dust A LOT! I've run other brands of ceramic pads (on other vehicles) and never had dusting problems like this, since ceramic is supposed to be pretty clean. The dust washes/wipes off my rims pretty easily but the rims are black again within 3-4 weeks of driving and I only drive 20-30 miles a day on average.

Paid few extra bucks over the gold cause I replace brakes not often so minus well do it right. Installation was breeze. I always bed my new pads and rotors. Great stopping power, quiet and smooth braking. Only problem I have is extreme dusting. Never had pads dust so much. Drive for 120 miles and I literally thought someone painted my rims with graphite paint. Old pads which were OEM Mopar parts you could see dust after 3 months and now washing you car. Wish they make them better. Installed on 2012 Chrysler 300 limited RWD

          Computer says they were an exact fit for my car, but they are too small. I do have the same make on the rear brakes, they are quiet and I am very happy with them.
