Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: EBC Brakes DP2872 Greenstuff 2000 Series Sport Brake Pad (Automotive)
I used to drive for a living, so I'm quite familiar with brakes and stopping vehicles and doing so safely. I'll never forget trying to stop a 50,000 pound earthmover in the service with bad brakes!!!!
That was a heart jolting experience! Anyways, I got a reco to use these from a mechanic who worked for midas. midas was one of my companies customers, so we were already on a pretty friendly basis. He took his time to reco those brake pads cuz they had the best stopping performance for street cars that he knew of, and I'm on my second front set now, and I can say they do a great job stopping my honda accord and they never faded on me. They have a built in glaze breaker on the suface to break the typical smooth glaze that builds up from normal stop and go driving, so if you are a do-it yourselfer, you won't have to get the rotors turned to break the glaze, just install them and follow the break in instructions. I am very pleased with these, and will definitely get them again when I need new pads. [ FWIW, My rotors are after-market slotted and drilled type, but I forgot the name brand, and I got them because of the advertised better stopping power and had less chance of warping and so I bought them in late 2002 when the car was new, but I did have a bit of fading on them, so when I got the reco for the EBC's, from someone I trusted, I went for it and am very pleased. ] the car now has 99,000 and these are the 2nd replacement EBC green set I put on.
