Much better than the OEM that came on my car. Planning on putting them on my Chevy conversion van.

My EBC Ultimax Rotors and EBC Green Stuff pads are easily the best aftermarket investment I've ever made. For slightly LESS than the cost of original replacements from Ford/Lincoln, I was able to dramatically improve the performance of my Navigator's braking system. The pedal is now firm and has very positive feel - it no longer feels like I'm pushing the pedal into a pile of goo. Bite is more immediate and stopping power is hugely improved. With a 6,000 lb vehicle it's pretty easy to notice improvments in fade-resistance, and the slotted rotors do a much better job than stock. I highly recommend the combination of EBC Ultimax rotors and EBC Green Stuff pads.

I wanted increased braking power. I successfully broke in the rotors using Hawk pads. I can't tell if there is any improvement over my stock brakes that had 36,000 miles on them. I just don't get sudden stops. It may well be the anti-locking brakes keeps the tires from chirping but it's hard to tell if it stops faster in less distance. I haven't tried them towing but I just bought them for my 2008 used Expedition and I never tried towing with them first. I rated them good because I got them so hot breaking them in that my garage had smoke from the brakes right after the break-in. I didn't get any suggestion of fade or less breaking power. It just didn't stop as aggressively as i had hoped It seems like I might need larger calipers to get the job done...... It seems like I might need larger calipers to get the job done.....
