    Comments about ProAct Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

    I tried these when I swapped to white wheels and boy did they deliver. Not only did the brake dust almost completely disappear but I couldnt believe how much it improved braking overall. When I checked the pads months later they looked as if they were still brand new. I will never use another pad.

    Comments about ProAct Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

    I have used Akebono for about 8 years and nothing compares in quality and performance. I tried to save a little money and bought other brands but now always install the Akebono because of trouble free satisfaction.

    • Q:

      Is this product for 1 pair or just one? How many do I need if I want to change both of the front pads?

        A:

        Brake pads are sold in sets. Each set will cover both wheels. If you buy a set for the front, then you will get enough pads to do both front wheels. Same for the rear.
