    The pads are advertised in the specifications as having in excess of .50" of friction material per pad. The pads have about .38" of material and the wear indicators will contact the surface of the rotor at approximately 50% usage of the friction material. Nice going. You get to use 50% of the friction material and then you throw the rest away because your brakes make noise. Either build the pads to the specs or shorten the length of the wear indicators so the drivers can use a greater amount of the friction material safely.

      Pads are great, I've used these in the past, and never had a problem, only complaint is they don't have the metal hardware they used to include in the box it's an extra cost and should be replaced with the pads

        My back brakes were making noise, so I picked up these pads and for the price, they are good quality. They installed easy and stop great. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is replacing the factory pads on their vehicle.

            I bought these to replace my rear semi metallic pads while replacing my trailing arms and sway bar. I got a good deal on them and theyre pretty good for the price. Not the same quality as my wagner thermoquiets i got on the front but they were less than half the price.

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

              These pads are great on my 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix. I always choose the gold pads for any car I work on, whether it's mine or a friends. The only complaint I have is that on this pair there was some extra material on the ears of the pads where they fit into the caliper cradle. I had to file it down before I put them in. Not a common proble, but it happens once in a while. I use these pads mostly because I have never had a problem with them making noise. That's what most people complain about when you use cheap brake pads.

                      These brake pads are great. I always get the gold pads for any car I work on, whether it's mine or a friends. THey are easy to install and don't make any noise. The noise is the thing people complain about most often, so I try to avoid pads that I have had trouble with in the past. The only thing I notice about these pads is that they don't always come with the shims that the OEM pads have. But they do usually have built in shims that do the job well enough.
