This was the first time I did my own brakes and I can't believe I wasn't doing them myself before! I haven't had them on for very long but I had this same brand installed on my truck over a year ago and they are really lasting well. I don't notice any brake dust with these either. I like how you don't have to mess with any shims or grease on the back of the pads, they get installed right out of the box. The metal brackets that came with the pads were identical to what was on the vehicle and were easy to install. The only problem I had was that it wasn't very obvious how to install the wear indicators and I ended up leaving those off.

Not sold on these, 15000 miles and I am replacing rotors and pads. I hope the next set of rotors and brakes last longer than 16 months. Not sure if it was a bad batch. It should not have happened like this. The same time these were replaced I purchased new Front tire hub assemblies, struts ( Monroe quick struts) rear shocks, new tires, high speed wheel balancing and a four wheel alignment. Wheels were rotated. I drive in NJ on the PKWY, almost all highway miles. About three week I noticed a wheel shudder when slowing down on the exits. so I checked the front brakes. The pads were uneven. Rotors had indentation of uneven brakes. So when I had the tire off I noticed a couple of screws and went to get them fixed. A local tire center put new tires on and a alignment, only to tell me I needed new struts.
So I put those struts in two years ago, or my book say 37000 ago. I am not bashing Advanced Auto, They stood behind on there warranty for the rotors and brakes.I will post how the new rotors and brakes go. I will admit my car is a hhr and are known for these problems but I have never had a pair of pads or struts (now leaking) go this quick .

            Comments about Wagner ThermoQuiet Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

            I bought these because of the positive reviews and the lifetime warranty. But when I installed them, I compared the pad area at the base of the pad to my OEM pads that I was replacing. I wasn't happy to see that the Wagner pads have about 5% less area than the OEM pads. I didn't notice any increase in pedal efforts but I have a feeling I'm not going to get the 65,000 miles I got out of the OEM pads.

                Brake pads were a simple install. Paired with new rotors and did a quick brake in. Also adjusted the rear drums and braking performance is now amazing. The pads create no dust, and no noise at all.
