Over 90,000+ Miles on these pads and still great. Quiet-Low dust. Overall Great Product for the money. I had these pads on so long I had to turn the front rotors due to a rust ridge. I just purchased a set of the same combo. Great customer serivce with tirerack.

I bought these after heard my brakes wore down to 1mm. as we all know infiniti has problems with brakes so turned to aftermarket. the Holman dealership in cherry hill, nj charged me 1000$ to install their product and and wouldn t install mine. also charged me to flush out brake fluid which they say is causing my calipers to cease. i took the car to my trusted mechanic up in NYC and had brakes installed for 200$ and had calipers cleaned. no they are as good as new and better stopping power than the old set. I wouldn t say this combination gives you the best stoping power ( as i test drove the 2011 G37 and that car had serious stopping power) but it should last a lot longer than the nissan parts. I m happy. I ll post another review if there s any problem with the brakes and let you guys know.

July 18, 2011

I decided it was time for new pads when I noticed very abrupt stopping accompanied by an increasingly loud squeal every time I touched the brakes. The reviews on this website helped me choose the Akebono ProAct Ceramic pads, and because my stock rotors were warped, I also chose to replace them at the same time. I chose to go with the ATE Premium One slotted rotor, and with the Akebono's, I couldn' t be more pleased. Breaking is smooth, not abrupt and grabby, and the squeal is completely eliminated. I can feel a certain sponge-like property when applying the brakes, a quality I actually don t mind.

I bought these based on the reviews here. I wanted what the package said: Ultra Quiet, Ultra Low Dust and OEM. I only got 1 out of 3. (Quiet) I had 166,000 on the original pads, with plenty of pad left. But I thought that I should change them since I had so many miles. The worst part of these pads are the black dust that come from them. The second worst is not getting the mileage out of them.



I am now going back to the pads I pulled out to replace them with these, and will run them and replace them based on pad thickness. At 166,000 miles on them (OEM) before replacing them with over 4mm of pad left, I m thinking I can go another 25,000 miles. At that time I will replace them with new original pads only and not these PROACT.



I am not pleased at all with AKEBONO ProACT.

Very satisfied with the brake pads. The pads have given significant improvement over stock brake pads. The rotors are okay. They do rust fairly quickly; faster than stock ones. Also the Brembo replacement rotors I got did not have the correct counter bore for the stock screws used for attachment of the rotor. Overall I am satisfied with the purchase.

Excellent experience with Tire Rack. Centric Premium rotors got better reviews on the website so I decided on them. Sure enough taking the rotors out of the box they look beautiful. The combination of these rotors with the Akebono ProAct Pads are exceptional. I was even called by Charles (pretty sure) from Tire Rack less than 30 min after to double check my order. Top notch customer service.

The pads had some minimal dust after prolonged use. Response, Stopping Power and Fade were rated 8,8 & 6 respectivly due to the fact these are not race components but performance was much better stock. My driving is done mostly on very hilly twisty road back and forth to work with heavy braking required at times for deer and school busses around blind corners. Overall I am very happy with these components. The best part is the powder coated hat on the Centric brake rotors. This not only looks great, but the rotors don t rust onto the wheels and look unsightly. Very nice feature. Also, I am replacing these brakes not due to performance, but after 50k miles, I think they should be well near the end of life. Performance has not yet been degraded. Note: during heavy wet weather driving the brake performance has been reduced by 25-30% by my estimate.

I use these on 3 three different cars and they are just great, low to no dusting. They last over 35,000 before they need replaced, I use to get 20,000 out of the other brakes I have used.

Rotors: Centric Premium Rotor

March 17, 2011

Centric Premium Rotors are a great value. They were a perfect fit for my OEM rotor; ready to install out of the box. They have a high-quality finish and came with painted centers, which I find keeps rust away from where the rotor meets the wheel. After 11,000 miles there is no warping or shimmy in the wheel, which was typical with the OEM rotor. Highly recommend.



Akebono pads are great too. No squealing and minimal dust. My only complaint is that the replacement caliper clips included with pad set did not fit my OEM rotor. Had to buy separate set from Acura. The instructions that came with the pad emphasized replacing them, so I would have thought they would fit better. Highly recommend the pads though.
