Switched from Brembo blank rotors and Pagid blue pads, and didn t have the cash at the time to buy a better combination.
Pros: Cost is reasonable. Very little dust. No noise except during first use after a rainstorm. But once the pads scrub the rotors, the noise is eliminated. Also, they were truly an OEM fit. No problems with installation.
Cons: Braking seems weak. It s adequate for daily driving, but clearly diminished from my previous setup. Where the old combination would lock up my tires at will, the new system will not at any speed above 20mph. For this reason, I ll be replacing the pads soon. I like a very grippy pad and these do not inspire confidence to stop now .
