      Comments about ProAct Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake Pads:

      OEM brakes last about 9 to 11K and only got 18K from the rotors. These last about 30K +. I have not had to replace my rotors due to warping for 60K..

        Comments about ProAct Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake Pads:

        I have installed several of these pads on many of my customers Town & Country minivans and they love them. They are on the vehicle that carries my children with stop and go driving everyday.
        Over 2 years and atleast 50% of the pad is still there. These pads will outlast the OEM brake pads if the brake system is working properly. The irony is that Akebono makes the brake pads for Chrysler.

        I also use Akebono brake pads on all 4 corners of my 2002 Explorer and they have over 25K miles on them, still look great, perform silently and dust free.

          easy to install ( 07 jeep wrangler )

          obvious quality product.
          worth the money
          just installed last weekend, we'll see how they hold-up over time.

          Comments about ProAct Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake Pads:

          I was looking for a pad that was better than the OEM pad with ceramic fiber content to minimize dust. Quality has been very good so far (just installed). Need much more time (and miles) to give a thorough evaluation.
