These pads were priced right, initial quality looks good, installed with no problems, have a thick lining that should give decent service. They are very quiet in application, have a good feel, not "grabby" at all. They are on my 2002 Ranger, and I'm very happy with the price/ value trade-off. Not racing brakes, but decent everyday use.

These pads are terrible. I had to contour the backing on one to make it fit in the caliper bracket. Then they squeaked. Took them back apart and used disc brake quiet by CRC and they still squeak.. Never had this problem with the ceramic pads and got three years out of them.

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

Short on funds I bought these pads but was slightly disappointed. I wish I bought the Gold ones or better. They fit fine, they have wear indicators and was actually the easiest install I ever had. '97 Explorer

What I don't like is the surface area of the pad. Both sides from about an inch in are angled down. I guess they done that to save money on materials. So that is about two inches of less braking pad area on each pad which will increase stopping distance. If you are an aggressive driver or use your vehicle for towing spend a little more on a better pad.

      Nothing nicer than brakes that work well and don't drag... the pads let loose when you let off the brake pedal and apply nicely when you need to stop...what more can one ask?

      For the price it's top quality. They fit like oem pads. The online ordering was fast and it was ready at the store when I got there. I will be using this again for my auto needs and pick up at the store.

        These fit great with the Rotor replacement. Everything needed was included and screech/squeel piece is preinstalled which requires less work for me which I prefer :D. Bang for the buck. If you are looking for performance however upgraded to the Higher Ceramic Grade Pads or Shoes. For this 98 Rangers use these were a perfect fit.

          These pads were installed on a 1996 Ford Ranger. They were a perfect fit and easy to install. I also purchased a small tube of brake lube to help ease the installation. The pads appear well made and very heavy duty.

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              A:

              The Silver is about equivalent to OEM and the Gold exceeds OEM. The golds have the shim on the back the silvers do not. All silver pads use same braking material, golds are supposed to be application specific.
