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

        The pads were about 1/16 in too big (long). They would not fit in the calipers with the hardware. I went back to the store and tried three different pairs of these pads. Finally, they gave me the same size pads from a different manufacturer and they fit perfectly. I gather that this is a common problem with this manufacturer.

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

        Per Advance Auto Parts, these pads are an exact fit for my Camry XLE V6.
        First impression is good. However, in practice, there are two major manufacturing faults;
        (1) Brake pads back plate is too big for optimal fit,
        (2) Pad retainer shims (included) are too thick (I tested the fit with OEM brake pads).

        In summary, the brake pads are too big, the pad retainers are thicker than the OEM retainers and installation of brake pads requires a lot of filing off of the excess metal.

        Unless you own a grinder or a vice and manual file to grind excess metal on the sides of the brake pads, do not buy these brake pads.

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

        Had trouble on a 2001 Toyota Solara getting the pad clips to fit. Had to bend the cross tab to get them on, which forced the pad ear portion of the clip to not sit level on the caliper bracket. This may be a potential issue for owners of 1997-2001 Camrys and 1999-2003 Solaras. I ended up using the clips I had which, fortunately, were not corroded and were a completely different style. The pads themselves are pretty good; I've used several sets of Wearever Gold and Platinum pads in the past and they wear and stop pretty well. Might be a good idea to bring in your old clips and match them up with the new ones to see if they'll fit right.

          Excellent pads. The only issue is that the kit doesn't come with new wear indicator clips. Otherwise an excellent product.

              I'm not happy because the tabs on the pad would not fit in the slides. I had to file the tabs down at least 1/16 of an inch on both tabs for it to fit. these were the profession pads! Somebody better check on specs.

                  The brake pads seem to be great, but I thought it was the front ones cuz when i searched the aap website it showed them as of they were front brakes. I ordered them, picked them up at a local store to find out they weren't the right ones. I asked the clerk if she can switch them for me,but she said that I have to reorder them online AGAIN. I don't have time for that. Beside, it wasn't my mistake that the website gave me the wrong sorted item.
