Akebono Brake Pads, What is the best Brake pad?

What is the best brake pad?
Cruising along the interstate, creeping through rush hour traffic or navigating through your neighborhood, you count on your brakes to stop your vehicle every time with smooth, quiet assurance. Why possibly compromise braking performance just because it is time to replace your brake pads? Today, motorists have an option to restore OE performance. The number one choice of automakers can now be yours. Choose Akebono ProAct Ceramic Brake Disc Pads from Akebono, validated by global automakers to ensure that your vehicle will stop like new.

Ultra Quiet
Nobody Likes Brake Noise. We've developed hundreds of unique Akebono ProAct Ceramic formulations to reduce and/or virtually eliminate brake squealing, groaning and vibration. The days of frustrating returns to the brake shop are over.
Low Dusting
There's No Need To Fret Over Wheel Dust. The Carefully selected materials found in Akebono ProAct Ceramic Brake Pads are more compatible with today's popular aluminum, open-wheel designs. They help minimize and/or virtually eliminate dusting.
Enhanced Durability
See You Later - Much Later. For the vast majority of motorists, Akebono ProAct Ceramic Brake Pads provide significantly improved pad wear performance in normal driving conditions compared to traditional brake pads. This means longer time between brake jobs.
Smooth Braking
Brake with Control and Confidence. Akebono ProAct Ceramic Brake Pads provide more consistent, smooth stopping power over a wide range of driving conditions, including panic stops.
Vehicle-Optomized Formulations
One Size Does Not Fit All. Akebono ProAct Ceramic Brake Pads are formulated to meet the specific OE quality, fit and performance requirements for your vehicle. More than 150 pads are available for virtually every domestic, Japanese and European car and truck built since 1990.
Akebono is the first brake pad manufacturer to produce a true ceramic pad for European vehicles that delivers the same European pedal feel and stopping power as the Original Equipment (OE) pads. Akebono's exclusive clean wheel formulations help to eliminate the heavy brake dust issues normally associated with the OE pads, too, and a definitive control of noise, vibration and harshness is felt.

One hundred percent asbestos-free, the pads' Advanced Ceramic Technology helps to extend rotor life resulting in fewer rotor replacements (and additional dollars saved).
Akebono Euro pads are approved for use by Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen.

So to sum up the benefits of Akebono ceramic brake pads, the three main reasons why more and more people are choosing ceramic over metallic:

Cool: Akebono Ceramic brake pads are designed to distribute heat equally or better than metallic pads. Studies have shown ceramic pads to perform up to 350 degrees cooler than semi-metallic pads resulting in consistent braking power on each and every stop.

CLEAN: With each and every stop ceramic pads do not produce the dirty brake dust you typically get with a metallic pad leaving your car's tires and rims virtually clean with less rotor wear.

QUIET:Akebono Ceramic brake pads quiet the harsh noises that you typically hear with metallic pads due to far less friction on the rotors.
