I replaced front pads on my 1996 camry. I've almost grinded the old pads to the metal and they were making horrible noises. The new pads were an exact fit. Installation took about 2 hrs but that's because it was my first time replacing brake pads. After the installation, the noise was gone and the car stops much better than before. Under hard braking, I can feel some fading. That might be because I didn't replace the rotor. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase. FYI, get silver-metallic pads over organic because it stops tad better than organic. Trade off is that more brake dust comes from silver-metallic.

I can not say if there is much of a difference with these frt pads vs high dollar pad set By same manufactuer of similar part number.I used them on my $500 "beater" car,mainly for cost purposes.I normally get an extreme amount of miles out of my brakes,most people average about 40,000 miles before pad renew reqired.Due to my driving habits,I get more than normal.At present, I can not say there is any issue with this product,can only see over time.I have only put about a 1000 miles on product when requested to write this review.I always advise my customers of the options prior to a part purchase and repair.

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

Great Value pads - fit good but caution as they do not come with the caliper to pad anti rattle clips or the top springs for keeping the pads separated from rotors. Check before buying as more expensive pads may come with them if needed. Other than that - fit great, work great and nice knowing my daughter will be driving a safe vehicle!!

    Very pleased with these brake pads. Better than OEM, because they come with the squealers. Shop manual said to remove the old ones and place them on the new pads = Bad idea. So that what makes these better. Snapped right in place, and work just fine.

      The price is right!

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

      These pads seem to be of reasonable quality. For the most part, they are easy to install. After all, brake pads are almost always a cinch to install. The passenger side went together without a hitch. However, the driver's side put up a bit of a fight. After trying to seat the pad in the caliper bracket (many attempts), I finally ended up having to take a grinder and grind off a little material from the from the ears (or ends) of the outer pad. I took very little off at first. Finally, after four different grinding activities, success! The pad now slipped right into the bracket! I tried to upload a picture showing where I had to do the grinding but the site won't upload.

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

        purchased semi metallic pads for 97 corolla and 96 honda accord after ceramics warped original rotors on both vehicles and replacement Wagner rotors on corolla after 10,000 miles. Significant reduction in pulsating after replaced with semi metallics. Toyota recommends as oe equipment semi metallics whereas Advance auto recommends ceramics as OE. Possibly a profitable recommendation as motive. Professions suggest ceramics dissipate heat as observed in dishware toward rotor overheating rotor and warping.

            • Q:

              I purchased a set of brake pads for 1997 Toyota Corlla. All the brake pads do not have the "grove" at the middle of the pads as shown on picture ( the out side box marked Made in China). Were those pads Ok to use? I already installed on my car. Please let me know the answer because I saw the OEM brake parts have the middle grove!

                A:

                I'm happy to help, Tommy Elite! These Wearever Silver Semi-Metallic Front Brake Pads (Part No. MKD 562) may not have the original equipment chamfers and slots. The Silver brake pad line is an economical brake pad solution. These pads are an 'Exact Fit' for the 1997 Toyota Corolla and are safe for use. If you would prefer brake pads that more closely resemble the original equipment brake pads in form and function, I suggest checking out our Wearever Gold brake pads (Part No. GNAD562) or upgrading to the Platinum pads (Part No. PXD562H). These are both ceramic pads, which is what was originally installed on the vehicle.
