    MASSIVE IMPROVEMENT over OEM

    Direct fit with 50% more surface area over OEM HHR pads. Add the lifetime warranty and ceramic formula and you have a winner. No squeals, no noise, good stopping power.

    Product seems to be good quality, though I haven't had it on the vehicle very long. The pads are made in China. I was able to buy Wagner (Made in USA) for one of my other vehicles, but they were not in-stock for all vehicles. I prefer Wagner pads.

    Comments about Wearever Gold Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

    They worked real well. If'n you push on the big pedal the car slows down. I think that's what's supposed to happen anyways. They're even painted real nice like. They're ceramic pads which are supposed to be pretty good. They're not supposed to dust real bad either, but I haven't drove the car enough to notice. Hopefully they're at least as good as the OEM pads I took off. They did seem kinda hard to bed in after I refinished the rotors. It took quite a few hard stops to get any kind of material transfer to the rotor. Other than that, good stuff.

                Just put these pads on, so time will tell, but the warranty is very good, and the front brakes are finally nice and smooth with no squeal.

                • Q:

                  Which pad does the wear indicator go on? Outside or inside towards the front or rear of the vehicle? (GNAD 1160 front pads)

                    A:

                    With reference to your inquiry on the Wearever Gold Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set) - part# GNAD 1160, the squealer should always point toward the disc. That way they work is, as the pad wears, the squealer gets closer and closer to the disc. Once the pad's wear limit is reached, it actually "touches" the edge of the disc making that squealing noise that lets you know it's time for new pads.
