I installed the Wearever Platinum Premium Ceramic Brake Pads with new Wearever Rotors on a 2010 Nissan Frontier 4 x 4. First time ever doing brakes by myself. Really uneventful--went as I thought--first side took about 1 1/2 hours and the second side I did in 45 minutes. Loosening the 19 mm bolts on the caliper bracket took some doing. Once I had the bracket off--the old warped rotor came off right in my hand. The new brake pads were a perfect fit. Changed the clips that came with the pads and they snapped right in. Really appreciated that the correct hardware came with the brake pads. The braking is greatly improved on the the truck, pulsating is gone and there is absolutely no brake noise. I towed my 4,000 lb boat today with no issues at all.
One thing is learned is don't go into Advance Auto Parts and buy what you need--order it on the Internet and pick it up at the store, or have it shipped to your house/workplace. In the store, I was looking at $226.00 and ended up buying the exact same stuff (30% off + $50.00 if your order was over $150) for $94.60 with free shipping to my house. I received the order in four days. Excellent buying experience--great value for the money and got the order/application correct the first time. I will be at advanced Auto next time around for sure. Keep up the good work Advanced

Installed this set of pads on the front of my 2010 Nissan Frontier in mid September 2014. Todays date is January 15th 2015.....just got new tires installed on the truck and since I am friends with the manager of the store he let me check my brake pads. Looks like I have only about 25% of pad life left! My factory Nissan pads lasted 3 years and 90,000 miles, these lasted just over a year. I have not driven the truck as much this year either. I am a casual driver driving my truck to and from work. I do not haul trailers or heavy loads in the truck either so I know this is not the issue, nor do I drive my truck like I am in a NASCAR race either. The amount of break dust these pads leave behind is insane! They coat my silver factory truck rims in short order once I do clean them up. They do a great job of stopping the truck and there is no break squeal because I installed the anti break squeal when I installed them also. I will not be buying these pads again because of the large amount of break dust and the short pad life I have experienced with them. When I installed these pads just over a year ago I installed new brake rotors with them so everything would be new. I also noticed the rotors have several small to mid size grooves in them also which does not impress me either they are as follows: Wearever Brake Rotor - Front Part No. YH145675, these rotors have good reviews also. I will be turning the original factory rotors as I saved them and most likely buying my pads from the local Nissan dealership this time around as the factory pads were way better than these in the life and the brake dust category. Stopping power is about the same. Both sets of pads look equally worn and both rotors look equally worn/grooved so I cannot think it has anything to do with the calipers.

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

Reason for a 4 is minor difficulty installing them. Very tight fit in the shims which may be a good thing in long run. I've brakes on other vehicles with no effort at all. These brakes on 2008 Frontier are a tight fit. Stopping is great with no noise at all.

      These pads came equipped with all the caliper clips and springs. I installed a set of rotors from Advance as well at the same time. It turned out to be a very cost effective brake job with no vibrations or squeaks.

      I bought these in Sept. 2015, I already heard a loud screeching noise 1 year later, less then 30,000 miles. If you need brakes now, they work...if you want something lasting, Id look elsewhere.
