This is a great value for the price. I went with ceramic to hopefully keep the dust down. I havent driven enough to comment on that so far, but they are very quite and perform very well so far.

"Average"

It didn't seem like a premium product to me. The surface area on the pads were very rough, but I haven't had any problems with them after a few hundred miles.

Comments about Carquest Wearever Platinum Professional Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

These are really good brake pads. They have every thing you need in the kit. That was a real plus for me! Many of the bargain products by others fall short and you must purchase extra stuff to get what comes in this kit. There is a lot less brake dust to stain you'r wheels too. I picked mine up at my local store within one half hour and got the cleaning products I needed to do a professional job. I use my Ford 150 for every day driving as well as towing my boat. I sometimes tow my seventeen foot box trailer and these brakes are up to the job.

      I've used these pads on the front and back of my truck and my wife's car. Very good quality pads with smooth, quiet braking. Long-lasting as well (depending on your driving). I'll continue to use these pads the price is great and the quality is as good as the bigger name brands.

        These ceramic pads are easy to install and are pretty substantial...they don't appear to throw off much brake pad dust.

            • Q:

              No information in box regarding packet of compound. Is it a brake quiet compound to be put between the pads and caliper or a lube for the caliper mounting bolts? A simple identifier on the packet would be helpful.

                A:

                Hi Bill, glad to help you! Both of the brake pads located on the front and rear of the rotor are same. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes or Chilton repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.
