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

    These worked fine for my car. They replaced OEM brakes that were extremely old. I can say that they are quieter and have slightly better stopping power. My only gripe was that the protective paint was already chipped off on all my pads. Not a big deal but perhaps they could use better paint.

            These brake pads give me a good sense of security. They were easy to install myself and just by look and feel I can tell they are top quality. I have nothing bad to say about them except they are costly, but there is a considerable rebate that I have applied for.

            Have an Acura Suv that has always been hard on brakes and rotors. Dirt, longevity, and quick wear. These brakes compared to much higher priced quality brakes out-performed those others I have tried.
            I now install these brakes on all cars we have, because of the cost wise quality and assured performance.

                I put these on a 2002 accord V6 and they are better then stock pads for less than half the price, after coupons and rebates. Like other have said they do not have shims and you shouldn't apply grease on them. I used the shims from the old pads and applied grease to the contact areas only. They fit and slide in great and very easy to install your self hopefully they last long. I dont notice noise from them and when I do it sounds like its coming from my rear brakes.

                  These things are WAY better than my old semi-metalic pads. If there is any noise at all, I certainly can't hear it and they grip hard. Highly recommended! 2002 Honda Accord EX

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

                    Still too early to tell. I'm not sure if the ceramic pads get too hot for the rotors (that have a 2 year warranty) and I might have to re-surface them depending on if the rotors can handle the heat of the ceramic pads. Supposedly the pads have a lifetime warranty (once they wear out, I return them but most retailers have limited this to mean lifetime warranty against defects: Not normal wear. [...]did not come with the metal shims. I kept the old ones in case I need them for the CR-V later on.

                      Are you supposed to use your factory shims with these,and any lubricants on back of shims?

                      • A:

                        Lube the metal caliper slides along which the pads travel, and I personally lube the back of the pad where the caliper grabs it. Be careful not to get lube on the rotor or pad, if you do clean it with brake parts cleaner.

                      Does this kit includes pads for both front brakes or do we need to order a second set?
