The old rotors on my 2003 Accord have been vibrating for a couple of years. Vibration starts after about 5 seconds of reasonbly hard braking. The pads were supposedly replaced when I bought the car @44K miles .. there's 114K miles now, so the pads were likely worn out.

I decided to buy new rotors & pads, and a 35% off coupon from Advanced Auto Parts at just the right time, so I ordered them. The Advanced Auto Parts search function was pretty straight forward, the only glitches being a) I couldn't tell if my car had caliper or drum brakes in the back because both were listed -- yeah, I could have gone outside and checked and b) Rotors come 1 per package but pads come 2 per package so I accidentally bought an extra set of pads. No problem.

I installed them pretty easily, in about an hour, and took it for a test drive. It feels great and no vibes. Brakes engage higher and are more effective, so I'm bouncing people off the dash board until I get used to them.

I've got an extra set of pads that I will put on at 140K, or on my wife's car if they match.

I was in a pinch and purchased these pads for my wife's CR-V. Out of the box they looked like quality pads. They made noise as soon as I drove the car. Not just the usual squeal you may expect until pads seat, but a grinding sound. After 1,000 miles they continued to squeal/grind. I changed to a ceramic pads, and all is well again. No noise, very little dust. Spend the extra bucks.

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

      The pads fit perfectly like they should and are working great. They didn't come with the clip so I had to reuse the old one but not a big deal. I have used these before and depending on your driving habits they will last about 3-6 months. It's a good buy in my opinion if you just need something quick, decent quality, and fairly inexpensive.

        I've been using the Wearever Silver pads on all my cars for as long as I can remember. Never had any issues. Always fit perfect and are quiet. Never any squealing. Last a long time and are easy to install.
        Remember to use brake lube on the back of the pads when installing. This will prevent any of that annoying brake squeal.

          OK brake pads. But now on two different cars, they wore out in less than 25k miles!
          Enough of this for me.

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

                After selecting these off the web site I later learned that the "Silver" version break pads are low qualty and will burn up quickly on my Honda Accord. These are not recomened for a Honda Accord So why offer them? Do not buy these if you want you break job to last more than a month. I had to return these and get the "Gold" pads which cost me additional time and gas money to get the correct pads.

                        This product was an exact match for the original. As such, they were an easy install in under 15 minutes per brake pad without rotor replacement. I have had them on for over 2 weeks now and have noticed no significant drawbacks to the set. They have performed well decreasing stopping distance as would be expected on a new set of brake pads. The brakes pads have not generated an excessive amount of dust or brake debris so far on the rotors or wheels. The brake pads have also proven to be very quiet without any squeals, stutters, or shudders. Overall, an excellent overall value for every day replacement use.

                            These are the logical addition to a healthy braking system. Brake pads are designed to wear out, and these will, but not prematurely, and won't score the rotors in the process. Wear sensors are attached.

                            • Q:

                              Do these pads require shims? The pads I took off my Accord to replace with these had shims on them, but they were direct replacement OEM pads from Honda. I was wondering if the shims were only on there because Honda's pads use shims but these replacement pads don't. I already have the new pads installed without shims, but I am second guessing myself. Thanks.
