I bought a cheep set of brake pads about four months ago and they worked just fine but, just in the first week they would squeak a lot and they caused my rims to get very dirty that was very hard to clean up and looked like (well, to put it nicely) very bad. I finaly got tired of it and bought this set of brake pads and I'm really glad I did. I've had these new brake pads for about one month now and its really nice, very smooth stopping and QUIET and best of all, my rims don't get all dirty any more. I bought these on line and saved 12% then picked them up at the store. (saved money and time at the store) It took me about one hour to install them, very easy and it came with every thing you need. I'm going to buy another set for the wifes car. I would definitely recommend this product.

The pads are nice but they didn't fit my 2007 Jeep Liberty. I took them back to the store and compared them to every other pad they had for my Jeep and they all were the same size. Basically these pads are about 2mm too long on the tabs. I had to use a grinder to shorten them to factory length. Once they were the same length as the Jeep pads they fit perfectly. They do stop well and are very quiet but installing them was a horrible experience.

Put these on my 2005 liberty. Only driven them less than a hundred miles but so far they are better than what I had.

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

    I got these for my Diesel Jeep Liberty, I haul cars with my Jeep and the last set of pads I cooked in a year hauling loads weighing from 2500lb to 4500lb and lately trying to stop my Jeep Liberty has become a religious experience at times!

    The new pads went on perfectly, no machining required, the box seems new as well as the part number so I think they have fixed the quality control issues thry were having. My brake pedals fees much better now and even with a heavy load, I'm not noticing any brake fade, I will be getting these pads again when it comes time to replace them.

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

      These pads are made in India but unlike the same brand/type set installed on my 2005 Dodge Caravan 3 years ago, the tabs on the pads that mount on the inside are slightly too long necessitating the use of a bench grinder. Other than that, I expect this set of pads to perform like the last set... no noise and almost no dust compared to nonceramic pads.

        Easy replacement on my Grand Caravan. Other reviews claim trouble installing. If you don't seat the shims correctly it will seem like the pads are too long. Make sure the shim is all the way down and they will slide right in.

        Great stopping power and reduced brake dust is a bonus.

        Quality Control Issue! After seating the metal glides in Caliper and lubing it didn't fit properly, way too tight, needed to take off several thousandths for it to fit and glide properly. And these are the premium pads? Typical China Junk.

            Everything fit fine. I just wish they had a picture of how to put in the shims, and a packet of grease was included but they didn't say where to use it. I don't think they meant to smear it all over the pads.

              The pads seemed thicker than others. I had to take both back off and rest calipers because of 'sticking' or constant braking. I wondered if they had not been milled correctly.
