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

        My 2005 Chevy Cavalier had semi-metallic brake pads on the car and the rotors had warped. I have found that ceramic brake pads are much better to use. Rotors don't warp and the heat output from the brake pads is a lot less.

          No issues with installing these pads. Improved braking and stopping power greatly. Quite simple to install. Just be sure to force the caliper piston into the caliper to its full seat, before installing the new pads and attempting to reinstall the caliper. You may have to extract some brake fluid from the reservoir to do this. Perform the recomended burnising in procedure and you're set. You can't go wrong with these pads and they are very, very reasonbly priced, in my opinion.

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

                I have noticed the increase in responsiveness, sensitivity and power these pads have to stop my car (2005 Cavalier). The day I installed the brake pads, I also installed new rotors and flushed as much old brake fluid from the brake system I could to get clean fluid through the lines, which is part of that increase in everything I feel. I do a lot of driving on the weekdays as well as the weekends and the occasional mountain road trips and so far they have done very well. Overall, these pads are a fantastic product and I will buy them again.

                      I am having issues with brake rotor warping due to excessive heat using traditional brake pads. Would the ceramic ones help or would you recommend something else?

                        A:

                        The ceramic brake pads have three features not found on other pads: chamfers, slots and insulator shims. The specially angled or beveled edges of a ceramic brake pad are called chamfers. They reduce the pad's surface area, creating more gripping pressure and reducing noise when brakes are first applied. Ceramic brake pads also feature slots or grooves cut into the pad to change vibration frequency and to permit gas and dust to escape under high temperatures. Insulator shims are yet another measure taken to reduce noise. They provide an additional layer to absorb sound and dampen vibrations. To locate the exact ceramic brake pads, please provide the year, make, model and engine size of your vehicle. For more information, please feel free to call us at 1-877-238-2623 or visit your nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our representatives would be more than happy to assist you.
