Good stopping power. Have some noise when releasing the brake pedal, as if the pads are sticking to the rotor. The amount of dust is unacceptably high, because of that would not buy again and do not recommend this product - front rims are covered in a thick layer of black dust within days and I am mostly driving on highway without any aggressive braking.

These rotors in combination with the new ceramic pads are downright dreamy, feels like a new car! Way better than OEM and the dusting is dramatically reduced. I only changed out the fronts for now, but will purchase the same for rears when they can no longer be resurfaced. Can t comment on the heat reduction qualities of the drilled holes because I have no way of measuring, but so far so good. Highly recommend.

Wow, what a difference! Very smooth stopping. Even braking power, not choppy. Very minimal dusting compared to the OEM pads that turned the wheels dusty black just a few days after a wash. Very impressive, I will purchase these pads for all my vehicles from now on!

My 2002 Stratus R/T Sedan with 2.4 L Turbo engine has to cope with two difficult situations: 1) I live at a 7350 ft. above sea level city, which reduces available vacuum to the brake booster. 2) the design of the car braking system is barely adecuate to stop the car, since front rotors are only 11" diam. Therefore I was always experimenting with so called "high performance, high quality brake pads. I have tried several brandas and types, never reaching a "decent" performance. Among the various brands. I tried Performance Friction Carbon-Metallic brand with very little improvment above stock pads. Later, I purchased the over-hyped "EBC Green Stuff" brand and was completely disapointed (those being very temperamental, braking was very different on humid days fom dry ones, from cold to hot and from time to time! It was like throwing money into the trash can. But one person that sells the Centric Parts "Posi-Quiet" brand was very enthusiastic and recommended them above any other he sells (including very famous brands like Hawk and Titanium, but liked the Centric Parts Posi-Quiet best.

These brake pads and rotors are great. They are the best the car has ever had.
I will definitely purchase these again when I need to and through Tire Rack.

Fresh pads are almost always good, or at least better than the old ones they replaced, however, these pads are making the OEM pads look really bad. They were quiet from the start, have yet to hear a single squeek, and after the first few miles, have been absolutely silent under braking. Response, stopping power and fade are all far superior to OE, with the sense of not being able to stop virtually gone, which was my only real complaint about the vehicle since I bought it. If I would have thought that a set of pads could have made such a dramatic difference, I would have replaced them within the first month of ownership!

Very loud squeak when I first tried them out. I thought I installed them wrong but they stop making noise when they get warmed up. I drove in Toronto weather where it can get cold and snowy. I have put on about 4000 kilometers and they still squeak when brakes are cold but make no noise after 5 minutes. For the price they are a great option to oem pads.

I was really concerned about brake noise and this set up is very quiet. The Centric rotors are impressive to look at and appear to be a high quality part. Everything fit perfectly. Brake dust seems to be less than OEM. Stopping power is as good or better then stock.

The rotors are fine. I think I may try a more aggressive brake pad next time. I was more concerned about hearing brake noise, so I stayed with ceramic.

After 135,000 miles and numerous pad and rotor replacements, my factory calipers were hanging up no matter how much I tried to clean them up and lubricate them. For the price of the Centric calipers, I figured I d be crazy to re-build my factory calipers myself and possibly see no improvement.

The Centric Premium rotors seem to be high quality. They bedded in very smoothly and braking has been smooth and quite ever since. The pads that come with the loaded calipers are also surprisingly good. I was expecting to have to upgrade to a performance pad like Hawk to improve braking, but the Centric pads have been working perfectly. The re-built rotors are also very nice, with a shiny coating that looks infinitely better than my 9 year old rusty factory calipers.

Everything fit perfectly, and install was uneventful.
