Ceramic disc brake pads tend to lessen excess brake noise and dust, which is a common side effect of semi-metallic brake pads. In addition, ceramic pads handle high brake temperatures with less heat fade while promoting a speedy recovery after harsh stopping. Ceramic disc brake pads certainly are among the best of the best brake components out there, which is why Tire Rack stocks a number of options from reputable brands like Akebono, Hawk and Satisfied. We could go on and on about how much we like them, but we'll let our happy customers speak for themselves:
Akebono ProACT Ceramic Pads
"Installed these about 3 weeks ago. Absolutely no dust, and stopping power seems to be the same as the OEM dust-makers. No noise. Changing the pads was a snap, everything fit." — Tire Rack Consumer Review, Chevrolet Trailblazer, LA
Hawk Performance Ceramic Pads
"I was a little hesitant about purchasing a brake pad that promised less dust yet was quieter than OE. I'm hard on brakes and have extremely high expectations. These ceramic Hawk pads combined with the PowerSlot rotors have great responsiveness, stopping power, but have great control especially for such a heavy vehicle. 100% better than OE." — Tire Rack Consumer Review, Ford Expedition, CA
Satisfied Pro Ceramic VS Pads
"These pads do just what they say. No noise, dust is very minimum, and the pads perform very good stopping from 160 mph to 0. The 300c SRT8 425 HP has no mercy on tires or break pads. Bottom line these pads are great. Thanks to Tire Rack for the great price." — Tire Rack Consumer Review, Chrysler 300C, AR
