I install an average of 8 sets per week and have had very good results with carquest gold ceramic pads they are lifetime warranty and the customers like the ceramic because they do not turn your wheels black like regular organic metallic pads. anyway go for the better grade ceramics from about any professional auto parts dealer not your advance or autozone you do get what you pay for.. good luck and welcome to WF

Good advise, also turning/machining the rotors ensures a smooth surface match between the Pads & Rotors You also may consider shims if your not using them, make sure the Calipers are actually working properly & the hardware is clean & lubed. Good luck, easy work....

make sure you clean the rotors after resurface.. Check your brake hardware to see if they dont move the pads around. Nothing wrong with semi metalic pads, just make sure they are good brands, axxis, halk, ebc, etc.. dont buy crap like raybestos. I use a bit of lube on the calipers, and pistons. brkes do move a bit and metel rubbing against metal will cause a squeal..
