Problem with salt and northern climates and rust/ squeaks
This was not a good decision for my Lexus gs350. First off, these have rusted so bad the dealership will not install new brake pads without replacing the rotors - all with around 50k miles. Cannot even be cut. Second, every day these have been installed, they cause the brake pads to squeak. I had the pads replaced twice, but it%X92s not them. Cannot recommend these in northern climates and for performance cars.
I was pulled in by the great reviews and price of these brakes. After receiving and installing them along with ebc rotors, they absolutey lived up to my expectations as far as stopping power and braking distance go. My only problem with these pads so far is the squeaking. They say that the rotors will squeal until around 500-1000miles. I%X92m currently at 2000miles on these rotors and in slow stop and go traffic I still get squeals from these brakes. Besides that, great product.
