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

Pads look good I always used the bendix pads and since can't walk in and buy those anymore figured I would give these a shot. They seem as nice but only time will tell

          This product is well made and installed very easy. The nice thing is no black brake dust on the wheels. I found this item to be packaged well and wished the instructions for installation was more detailed. I would recommend tis product.

            I was told that ceramics were the best bang for your buck. I broke them in per the instructions on the box. They do have a small grinding noise but I think that will go away as time passes.

              I chose the Platinum pad as this is my everyday vehicle and the Gold pads from my last job were a little noisy. Came with new pad brackets and grease. Went on easy and so far after about 200 miles work great.

                The pads installed with little difficulty (must remove one tab at bottom of clip, or pads will not fit- look at old clips before discarding), and performed to specifications. I would definetly use them again.
