Duralast Brakes

Anyone tried out the ceramic pads by Duralast? Was wondering anyone had complaints about them.

I purchased lifetime pads for my truck years ago from them. I'm on my 6th set. Not the best pads you can buy but I've only had to buy them once.

Heard some complaints about the Hawk pads squealing from several people, and seen a post on here about the same thing. I'm going to give the Duralast a try. I'm tired of cleaning brake dust off of my wheels...

I'll be putting mine on Wednesday. At least that's the plans... I'll let you know in about a week how it goes.

I have them on my car and they dont make noise and very little dust. No noticeable performance difference, but I was looking to get rid of the high dust problem. I like them so far, been on for about 1.5 years
