Check Vehicle Fit

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:

I bought this product online. I had to return it as it is for rear brakes and not front ones. The website did not specify this fact. Did get the correct brakes and paid the same price as online (there was a special) since it was the site that was at fault. The above pictured brakes I have no idea how they work. However the front brakes of the same brand seem fine.

    Comments about EURO Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake Shoes - Rear:

    I bought a set of front and rear Akebono pads for my 2005 BMW X5 from your website; picked up at store. The back fit perfect (EUR683); this reviewed part. The other set (EUR1294)were too big and I had to return them. Even the store clerk said thats what your system stated fit... BUT they don't. They must go to another X5 model. Please update your system with the correct model!!! I had to exchange for a Wearever set immediately since the mechanic was here at my home completing the job that day with my wheels off the car...(hope they do as good and last as long as Akebono).

        I bought it mainly because it's supposed to keep the wheels much cleaner ( I can't stand this crazy black dust anymore !) It supposed to be rotor friendly too . It works perfectly well ( smooth , silent and powerful ) . So far , so good !
