    These brakes work great. At the time I got these I got $30 M.I.R. with them + ordered them online and picked them up in store and got even more money off. Dealership wanted $750 for 4 brakes and rotors and installed I bought all 4 here and spent [$] and 2 hours of my time on putting them on. It was a no brainer.

    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.

          Product was not as decribed. The product desciption stated that it would be an exact fit for a 2011 Chevy Malibu LTZ. However, the pads were way to big for this car. Product was later returned and swapped out for Wearever front pads which fit as described.

              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.
