Centric Parts Premium Brake Pads provide superior stopping power and reliability for passenger cars and light duty trucks. Centric Parts engineers have worked with leading brake pad manufacturers to develop two application specific friction compounds that combine improved stopping performance and reduced noise under braking. Centric Premium Brake Pads are installation ready with High Performance Shims attached and feature O.E. style gas slots and chamfers to optimize braking performance especially in repeat stop situations. Centric Premium Ceramic Brake Pad compounds produce little brake dust and provide longer service than other brake pad formulas.
