2005 Honda Civic EX, 83,700 miles from OEM set of front pads, still rolling on the rear pads. Upon reviewing too much data from the Internet and in the stores, I settled on these pads. Immediately they proved themselves as great quality and performing pads. Slight brake pressure provides instant response. They feel so good, I want to replace the back brakes now too, even though they don't need replacing! Will look to these same pads for my 2008 Honda Odyssey when it comes due for new brakes. I hope that I can get 83,700 miles out of these, time will tell. The value was excellent and much better than I had expected.

I purchased these brake pads (front set) for a 2009 Honda Civic LX. While I have used these brake pads in other vehicle applications they have worked great, no noise, good stopping power, no brake dust.

I verified the part number as well as the advance employee at my store. These pads were simply too thick to fit the honda civic they were manufactured for. Initially I could not get the caliper to slide over these pads, with the piston fully retracted. Even trying to use a rubber hammer to tap the caliper over was of no use. Also note that I had cleaned any rust or debris from the calipers with a drill and wire brush.

Thinking that possibly the new rotors were manufactured incorrectly I also tried these pads on the old rotor, still no luck, I then tried the opposite side and opposet set of pads with both new and old rotors and the opposite side verified the pads were too thick to fit into the caliper.

At the store we visually compared them to the wearever platinum ceramic pads, these pads were around 1mm a piece thicker than the weaver platinum ceramic pads, so by using a set of these you are losing around 2mm of clearance.

I returned these, purchased the wearever platinum brake pads, and had no issues on the install.

After time wasted assembling and disassembling, plus a special trip to advance and back, I won't ever purchase these pads again.

I can advice you not install these on a 2009 Honda Civic LX, this particular one had drum brakes in the rear. However, I would assume that most civics in this generation use the same front caliper and rotor setup.

Great Pads

By 

from Western North Carolina

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

Have used a number of different house brand pads. All worked OK but noisy, chattered, excessive dust, etc. These are the most expensive pads I have ever bought but they work great. 25,000 on pads so far and they stop fast, quietly and chatter free. Virtually no dust build-up on the front rims. Will buy them again for both my Hondas and my Miata.

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

                This is an excellent pad. They come with backing shims and replacement slide inserts. These pads leave virtually no brake dust. I have been running them for at least 50k miles in my Honda Civic, and they still have plenty of life left in them. I prefer the feel of organic pads for light braking, but the performance of these ceramics during heavy braking is excellent. The main downside is a long break in period (I reused old rotors), which I feel reflects their slow wear rate more than anything. I did have to lightly grind the ears to get a good sliding for in my calipers.

                  What exactly does the limited lifetime warranty cover? Can I return the used pads and receive new one's as I drive the car?

                    A:

                    I'm glad to assist you, Brian! The limited lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 days time frame . After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid for the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle.

                • Q:

                  The kit comes with new hardware for where the tabs slide onto the pad bracket, but it does NOT include the thin metal shims that were between my caliper and the back of the brake pad. Does anyone know: are these thin metal shims needed or not? Should I just transfer them from my old pads to these?
