I need to replace my front Brake pads. Can anyone tell me if the OEM pads are semi-metalic or ceramic? If I change or use ceramic will this increase the wear rate on the rotors>

Thanks,
RSD

The OE pads are semi metallic----hence all the brake dust. I replaced all 4 sets and rotors at 39K. Raybestos ceramics---no more dust. At 46k today...well worth it.
