Comments about ProAct Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake Shoes - Rear:

Very satisfied with the Akebono ProAct pads. Very quiet, leaving my alloy wheel shiny and clean. Stopping power is great, no fading. I would definitely use them for my other car as well.

    Comments about ProAct Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake Shoes - Rear:

    This product does not squeak like the Wearever Thermoquit. This makes no noise what so ever. Initial Stopping power isn't instant like Wearever, but very comparable. If I have to put a number system to it, I would say this is a 8/10 stopping power vs Wearever is a 10/10.

    So if you are using this on the street, it will work just perfectly fine.

      Comments about ProAct Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake Shoes - Rear:

      These work just as advertized - they stop the car. Make sure you take a little time to break them in before you go too far. Easy to install - just remember to remove the clips from your old brakes, since these don't come with clips. They're quiet brakes, as far as reduced dust - I'll see...
