I like Raybestos. Organic stuff is out of the question. I like the PGD52C.

The ceramic's would be better used with HP cross drilled rotors to disipate excess heat. They work real good and almost seem to get better when they get hot with less fade but they really heat up a standard rotor not to mention the wheel bearings.

You cant go wrong with Wagner thermo quiets. I think they are the best aftermarket pads.
Drilled rotor are a waste of money for a street driven vehicle. The biggest benifit to them is they dissapate surface gas n continual hard breaking but you actually loose braking surface. The holes do little for cooling. The vents between teh surfaces do most of the cooling

X2 on the wagners. The thermoquiets are good pads, and the SX line is good, as well, especially if you run loaded.

The reason I tried ceramic's was to get rid of the brake pad dust on my wheels. It did a good job of that. Soo.... how does the wagners do?
I hate that crap all over my rims!!!!!!!

They are ok, not like the cheapos. They have a good pedal feel, they are quiet and have decent life. They are not cheap, but if you do the job correctly they will last a long time. We have tried a lot of different pads and with the exception of OEM I feel they are the best. You cant beat OEM's, especially on the Japanese cars.

I put Raybestos metallics on our 04 Grand Caravan. They wouldn't stop squealing when applying the brakes! Switched to ceramics and all is well. When cold they might grind/vibrate a little sometimes but once warmed up are fine.

I've had very good service and service life out of Morse Ultra pads as well, and they are considerably less expensive than the Wagner Thermoquiets. The Wagners are a very good pad though.

i'm going to change the brake pads on my friends Mercedes-Benz and i'm wondering if there's any special tools that will be needed to do the job and is it any different then doing a regular set of brakes on any other car with disc brakes...
