I was expecting a considerable difference over my stock brakes. I have not noticed any difference in stopping distance or power. I have noticed more brake dust which is shocking. Maybe they are still too new. I installed them and went on a 1200 mile trip, 2007 Explorer. They did not have the lubricant package as illustrated in the product picture.

                  • Q:

                    Will these ceramic Gold Pads wear the rotors more in comparison to factory semi-mettallic pads?

                      A:

                      Ceramic pads: Advantages: In general, they last longer than semi-metallic. They can take slightly more abuse. They leave minimal brake dust, and the dust that is left is less noticeable-a nice complement to chrome and alloy wheels. Disadvantages: Ceramic brakes need to warm up a little before they attain the grip of semi-metallic pads. They're more expensive-sometimes considerably more. However, some brands sell competitively-priced ceramic pads. Semi-Metallic brake pads: Advantages: Better grip than ceramic when cold. Often less expensive than ceramic. Disadvantages: Cons of Semi-Metallic. Shorter life. Brake dust is much more apparent.
