The use of highly advanced ceramic brake pad technology allows Akebono's "EURO" pad line to provide excellent stopping power while extending rotor life and virtually eliminating brake dust. For over two decades, Akebono Ceramic Technology (ACT) has been used in many North American passenger cars, light trucks and SUVs and has set the benchmark for ceramic pads used in OE vehicle production. Some European OE manufacturers now request Akebono products for their North American vehicles.

Product Features:
  • Clean Wheels
  • Ultra-quiet
  • Extremely rotor-friendly
  • European braking performance with an enhanced pedal feel
  • Friction formula specifically designed for a European vehicle
  • Ultimate upgrade for OE semi-metallic and low metallic brake pads

    Comments about EURO Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake Shoes - Rear:

    These pads were nothing but trouble on the rear of a 2009 VW Jetta TDI. The driver side rear would stick, especially after applying the parking brake a few times. I thought something was wrong with the caliper and took it to a mechanic. After turning the rotors and installing different pads, all is well. I'm not sure why these pads did not work. Maybe they don't get along with the stock rotors. For what it's worth, I was not the first person to return these pads when I took them back. I'll give Advance Auto parts 5 stars for taking them back without any trouble.

          No, the rear brakes do not. The wear sensor is only for the front brakes. The front brake kit by Akebono does come with the wear sensors.
