Good value for the price. Replaced rotors and used these pads. Difference was ight and day and pedal response was great. Would recommend for daily driving use and the ceramic has given me great results and longevity on all of my vehicles, which is why I went with the ceramics.

These Wearever Preminum pads are quiet and easy on rotors. Stopping power is about the same as OEM pad's. However, they release excessive brake dust making alloy wheels look dirty very quickly. For the same cost, there are other brands out there that perform better, creates little to no brake dust.

Horrible quality control

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

Pads are too thick to fit into the caliper even with the piston fully pushed in, way out of spec compared to OEM. Not the first time this happened either. This company really needs some better quality control.

2011 honda civic brake pads

By 

from Rexford, NY

Verified Buyer

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

I ordered the correct pads for my car, but sales person gave me the wrong ones (found out 2 hrs. later after I had the hardest time installing them, then went for a test drive and they were smoking so bad I thought they would catch on fire). I quickly pulled over to side of road and waited 1 hr. for them to cool. When I went to inspect I found the rubber seals on calipers were burnt/melted from the heat. I took the pads off and brought them back to your store in Greenwich, NY (store # 05859). The guy tells me that they are the wrong pads for my car, they were for Honda Accord (they gave me the correct pads, and told me to contact main headquarters). I need to replace the 2 calipers and Advance Auto has the responsibility to provide these at no cost to me. Your counter guy screwed up and destroyed my calipers.
This original transaction was at the Glenville, NY store # 5569 and the online order # was 67332344.
I have changed brake pads on cars for over 25 years, so I am not some "rookie" at this task.
I need you to do the right thing here.
Thanks.

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

        These are Platinum Ceramic brake pads that I have used several times in the past with no issues. They wear well and have the same stopping feel as the Oem pads that were on my Civic. Easy to install and the pads come with all needed items in box. Grease and new slide brackets. So far I have had no issues and like the price of the pads. Get the rotors and pads together and you will get another $20.00 mailed to you as a gift card. Can't complain about that. I will continue to use advance auto parts

          • CUSTOMER CARE

            A:

            The brake lube on this Wearever Platinum Premium Ceramic Brake Pads - part# PNAD465A has to be applied between back of piston/pad, caliper slide pins and where the pads contact/move (ears on end of pads, not on the friction material). For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

        • Q:

          I had bought these brakes for my 2006 Honda Civic GX and when I tried to install them the caliper would not go on smoothly. The caliper piston was depressed and everytime I had tried to reinstall the caliper I would need like another 1/8" clearance. What could be the possible problem?
