The pads work but makes a lot of noise (I used Advance Auto anti squeal grease) and they make a lot of brake dust. After they have been on the '06 focus for about 2 weeks the front wheels are black now.

        Comments about Wearever Silver Semi-Metallic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

        I installed these today as part of a full brake overhaul on my 2007 Ford Focus. I chose the semi-metallic pads over the ceramics for cost reasons and I believe that the pads will wear out without damaging the rotor so the next brake job will not need rotors, only pads. These fit well. The stopping power is great! You will need a 7mm Allen tool to remove the caliper. I had an 8 and a 6, but no 7. Advance had one in stock. NOW I have one too. Next time I will be prepared! Break them in gently with a few stops from 5 then 10 then 20 miles per hour, then let them cool. You will be happy with the results.

                I've been using the Wearever Silvers for years on many different cars. No complaints. I always replace rotors and pads at the same time. I also use a backing spray (I think it's Permatex) that claims "Anti-Squeal". It's either the spray or the pads, but I don't get any squealing.

                This was the first brake change on my 2012 Mazda5 and I did not realize that the oem pads were ceramic. These pads do not perform as well as those, but they are satisfactory, expecially for the price. There is some slight squealing on occasion despite using brake lube. Next time I will spring for the ceramic pads.

                  Brake pads seem to be working so far - I only had them installed a few weeks ago. We'll see how they do in the winter and after about a year. I noticed they're squeakier than my previous brakes (don't remember brand).

                  • Q:

                    I am very satisfied with my 9 year old Silver brake pads. Is the current Silver pad same quality a my old ones?

                    Does the Professional ceramic pad have better slowing/stopping performance than Silver semi-metallic?
