These brakes look like some grey powder coated semi-metallic pads plain and simple....
They do have low to non-existant sound!
The new brake wear replacement parts included with mine made me have to clean up the passenger front and reuse it since it wasnt worn out.
Was not pleased at all.

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

Completely replace front brakes including the rotors. These ceramic break pads fit just like the OE pads and very easy to install. Although I haven't driven too many miles yet the break pads are quite and the breaking is smooth.

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

    The brake pads I purchased were very easy to install and the performance from them turned out great. There is no brake dust visible either. They are also very silent. The price for these brake pads was very reasonable. The service I received at the store while picking up my parts was great too. I compared the brake pads and price to several other auto stores and decided on Advance. I'm very glad I did now. I hope I can save someone the trouble of deciding with these review comments. Thank you Advance Auto Parts.

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

    These ceramic pads were installed to replace a set of semi-metallic pads as well as rotors that were installed within the last year. The replacement was performed to try and alleviate the horrible dust build up on the rims of my F-150, as the black dust was obnoxious on those rims. These pads together with the new rotors installed as would be expected for an OEM replacement part. I also found it helpful that this pad set comes complete with all the anti-noise and anti-rattle clips to allow a complete "refresh" of the front brake system.

      These are great pads for everyday driving,hauling heavy loads, and campers! My truck has 190,000 plus on it and this is only the second set of pads I have put on it. The first time I replaced them was with these exact pads and got about 120,00 out of them.

        • Q:

          is the wearever lube packet that comes with brake pads a silicone lube that can be used on slide pins?

          • CUSTOMER CARE

            A:

            Hi Argey, good question! You would need to apply the lube to the surfaces of where the brake calipers make contact with the brake pads. The lube is to make it easier for the metals to slide along when you press your brake pedal to make the pads press against the rotors. So just remember, not on the face of the pads that press against the rotors, but on the metal surfaces where the pads meet the calipers and need to slide with ease.

        • Q:

          what is the wear sensor included their were no instructions in the box where do you put the lubricant
          Asked on 1/10/2013 by Jackie

          • CUSTOMER CARE

            A:

            This Wearever Platinum Premium Ceramic Brake Pads - part# PNAD679 includes a wear indicator plate. When enough of the friction material is worn away, the wear indicator will contact the disc and make a squealing sound. This means it is time for new brake pads. The lubricant has to be applied to the clips of the new brake pads to keep them from squeaking. 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:

          Are the Wareever & Wagner brake pads and rotors made in the U.S.A.
          Asked on 5/10/2012 by Anonymous

          2 answers

          • A:

            The Wearever box I had said "Made in India". I found out that a lot of India and China brake manufactures still use asbestos (and other hazardous materials) in the manufacture of their brake products. I do not know if this Wearever brake product contains asbestos but I won't take the chance.
            Wagner brakes are made in the US and advertised as being 100% free of asbestos. Wagner is usually a bit more expensive but it's worth the money.
            Just ask the friendly staff at Advance Auto Parts to order you some Wagner brakes.

            A:

            Advance Auto Parts does sell Made in the USA products as well as products manufactured from many other countries in order to keep our pricing competitive. Please also keep in mind that many suppliers have multiple manufacturing plants that could result in different countries of origin for the same part.
