Ceramic Brake Pads: A Cure for Squeaking?

(0) Comments Add a Comment »

We often hear complaints about loud, squeaking brakes, and customer often wonder what can be done and whether this indicates that anything is wrong.

Most often, nothing is wrong.  Brakes work by rubbing metal against metal, and that is a recipe for squeaking.  One way to address this may be to use Ceramic Brake Pads.  Ceramic brake pads are marginally more expensive than traditional organic or metal pads, but they have a number of attractive qualities, including being quieter.

Our friends at AA1Car.com have an excellent article giving some detail about ceramic brake pads and their benefits.  If you have any experience with ceramic pads, good or bad, let us know!
