Comments about ProAct Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake Pads:

I have installed this Akebono brake pads in my and my sisters' cars (Honda Odyssey, Camry, Acura TL and Corolla) and they all have improved braking feel, reduced distance and longer life than OEM pads...after an initial break-in of approximately 50 miles. My wife uses her car for work with mainly stop & go driving and the OEM pads would last about 25K miles while the Alebono pads is still going strong after 40K miles, and with shorter stopping distances and much improved brake feel. She loves her braking now as I do. I now use Akebono exclusively. You pay a bit more, but you get much much better braking. I do my own work so I save on the labor and put the $$s in premium parts.
