I'm thinking of changing to Brembo brake pad for my Wira 1.5 with stock brakes. I asked a shop and they quote me RM120 for it not including installation.

Any of you guys have any comments or opinion regarding these brake pad? The one that I am using currently produces a lot of brake dust although I just changed them like 2 months ago. I plan to put them into another car and I'll use the Brembo for my car. My current brake pads are LPB Semi-metallic from China.

Have never tried before also and considering to get for next replacement if good (at least for my rear pads which are not so important). Got some friends in the club who have used and they said it's decent. As for the price, the ones I saw in some ads are also around that rm120-150 range, maybe the base OEM replacement model or fake, not sure though.

Looks like these standard Brembo pads are still new to our market here. Now I'm still thinking should I change to these or not. My current ones offers good braking performance but it is just that they are quite dusty (But it seems like they got less dusty lately compared to the days when it is still just 1 or 2 weeks new).

I have also checked some of the old threads that you guys discussed in. Some of you mentioned Bendix, Trestor Blue, Akebono, Sumitomo. Perhaps I should try these?

The red makes it look nice. :biggrin:

Your current brake pads are those that came with your Libero halfcut?

So, if you want a pad that can bite well, dust cannot be avoided?
Yes, so far usually those with good bites will be a bit dusty. Those not so dusty one are usually original pads but some of those do already provide good bites too.

Based on bro VR2 & Izso, the Trestor Advantage Blue is pretty good value for money. Same manufacturer as Bendix but they said much better cold bite. I'm using Bendix Metal King now but only for my rears so decent enough.

Yup, agree on this. My metal king dust a lot, and when fitted trestor advantage the brakes improved a lot and so did the amount of dust......hhahahhahhah:biggrin:

I had Bendix metal king Plus, then Gold then Titanium before jumping to Trestor advantage. The major improvement was cold bite, right from start, it already bites where Bendix need a while to bite until it warms up. Hot also Trestor slightly better, but the problem is FMP the manufacturer have shifted to Thailand if not mistaken, and they are not selling Trestor Advantage in Malaysia already.....:bawling:

Yup, after I poison Izso and gang and some members I also recommended to use, many was using until lately many wanted to find replacement cannot find. Usual PH Auto and even the Jalan Ipoh direct dealer also don't have. Trestor normal and semi metallic have but not the advantage...:bawling:

You try and give us your feedback......:adore::biggrin:
I will try if available for mine. Last time I asked it's not available for my front 4 pot, only got for the stock calipers. For the rear last time was also out of stock I think hence use Bendix again. I will ask again later once time to change.

Dusty is secondary, make sure the pads can perform.
If this is the case, then no reason for me to change my current brake pads. They bite very nicely and able to brake effectively. Just that they are dusty. Maybe I'll just wait 3 years later or more to change into other better brake pads.

Bendix metal king is dusty. Bendix General CT (Ceramic Technology - entry model) is not dusty at all, but they don't bite as good as metal king.

Trestor Advantage is super dusty. Bendix in one week start to see dust, Trestor Advantage a few days only......lol

Bendix General CT should not cost a lot right? Since it is entry model.

My current ones can see dust in less than a week and they stick on the tyres too which makes the tyres to appear reddish brown. Hard to clean those away.

Im sure there is pads that can do both but it's not gonna be cheap hahha.

For me I don't mind the dust, janji can perform hahah

Original pads? You mean those that came with the car? Any recommendations for these original pads?

General CT for wira should not be more than RM100 if not mistaken, but nowadays with weak ringgit who knows. My chery oil filter was 18 now 23, cabin filter was 30 now 45....:banghead::banghead:

Because of the dust, I need to wash my wheels like every 3 to 4 days if I care about appearance. Every time right after coming back to work, go and wash car and wheel. :banghead:

If not over RM150, still can be considered. If more than that, I need to think if I really need such kind of brake pad or not.
