    They have a tendency to squeak when hot. 90% of the time I loved mine but they got more noisy. I had to clean the rotors and pads and re-bed them and now so far so good. No more squeaks.

    I've tried a few different ceramic pads and never liked the feel. It always felt like it took more pedal to get it to stop - but the pads were 'firm'. Dunno. I'm not a fan.

    Ceramic pads are only good if you want low noise and low dust but you do lose stopping power when going with ceramics. If you get other pads such as Hawks or Stoptech's you get the stopping power but not low dust or noise. Hope this helps!
