The Ate pads were installed with new Ate rotors and in less than 8000 miles the pads had worn out ! That was an unbelievably short life. I thought a noise I heard from the front end was the wheel bearings, but no, it was worn out pads. I never thought of that at such a low mileage. Overall they were good while they lasted, but they lasted too short a time.

Mated with ATE Premium One Ceramic pads. Rotors are nice. Have resisted corrosion nicely and are not noisy. Have not warped after 5k. The ATE ceramic pads are a disappointment and would not recommend for strong braking performance.

March 07, 2012

My old rotors were "warped" and not turnable. The set of raybestos pads and rotors had very nice stopping power but "warped" at about 20k miles. Not acceptable to me. So I was looking for something that would last much longer and not "warp"/or leave "warp" deposits from the pads on the rotors. So after much research I decided to get the Ate slotted and ceramic pads. The ability to stop is their but requires much more effort and an extra oomph at the end to get the relatively large and heavy vehicle to stop. Hot or cold temp or brakes makes not difference. Time will tell with the ability of the rotor and pad combo to last and not warp. After 5k its still good.

40,000 miles ago I had some cheaper ceramics installed. While they still had 80% pad life left, they made annoying noises when cold. The noises lasted much longer than the initial "squeak" that you usually get. A mechanic friend of mine recommended Ate; so I had them installed. And yes, we re still in the baby stages of these brakes, but I think I made the right decision. Very good stopping power, no noise at all, even when cold, and no dust at all. My wheels are chrome, so EVERY speck of dust shows, and 1,000 miles into it, there was no visible dust. I also had them put on the rear, since they were about 40%. So far, I love these brakes. Ate is not well known in the public eye, but German car mechanics love them - I was told they re the OEM manufacturers for Mercedes and BMW. Go ahead, pick them up with confidence.

This combo works better than stock. The original brakes had way too much initial bite, making for a jerky ride. The ATE premium pads solve this and have an overall much smoother feel. There is quite a bit of dust on the wheels, but little to no noise. overall I would recommed this combination to other Mazda5 drivers.

I had problem with braking after i put 4 new Michelin HydroEdge with Green X tires. I dont know why exactly why my braking become much worst after but i think is because Michelin HydroEdge with Green X put lot of water under front brake pads. Then i install ATE pads and rotors problem is gone now. ATE is leaving very low dust on the rims. I would recommend this ATE brake pads and Rotors to any one.

I put Michelin Hydroedge tires on this car, and started having an issue with brake responsiveness in the rain. I would collect water on the rotors and it would take about 1/2 sec for the water to get cleared off at highway speeds. Since switching pads & rotors, this problem has totally been eliminated. They are quiet, firm and consistent. They have a quite a bit more bite that the OEM pads and as such a much lighter pedal pressure is needed. The only time I get noise is after sitting for awhile and the rotors build up a rust film, and all brakes will make some noise then. For the first couple of thousand miles there was just a brief delay between applying the brakes and getting any bite from the brakes but after a few thousand miles this seems to have been eliminated as the pads have completed bedding into the rotor. The power slot rotors work very well, but when you brake hard, they let you know they are there with a harmonic rubble which is typical of slotted rotors. The slots keep the water off the rotors and I no longer have the issue with water on the rotors causing a lack of responsiveness. My only complaint about the Power slot rotors is that I wish they had treated the slot recesses with the E-Coat as I''m getting rust in them. I think the Black coating highlighting the slots would have looked good, but at the very least some sort of clear coat should have been applied. Maybe sometime this summer, I pull the rotors and do this. So if you get these rotors you might want to consider lightly painting the slot recess with a suitable high temperature paint prior to installation.

I don''t care about looks or track performance. I wanted a setup that would hold up to mountain driving, towing and the regular stop and go driving that I put my car through. Initial impressions were good. The rotors weighed 2 lbs more per rotor than my stock rotors but I''m not a racer and I don''t care about rotational mass so this was a good thing to me. The additional weight gave me hope that the rotor was a denser forging. Within a thousand miles after the installation I took the vehicle up into the mountains and encountered repeated days of heavy fog and multiple emergency stops mixed with lengthy stopping periods due to downhill grades. I experienced zero fade and when I checked the rotors for run out there was no measurable change. Since that initial check I''ve added over 15,000 miles to the vehicle including multiple trips into the mountains loaded and unloaded and at last check there was no warping on the rotors. Pads are holding up better than expected based on some of the complaints I''ve read regarding slotted rotors chewing up pads. I still expect to get over 35K out of these pads (par for the course b/c of where I drive). These rotors were worth every penny spent.
