MB pads do wear out fast. I personally prefer PBR MetalMaster... they last
forever... I would estimate about 60,000+ miles in suburban driving. This
pad cost only about 1/3 of that MB ask for their pads.
If you want better than OEM pad, then I suggest you try the Ceramic pad...
PBR Ultimate... I got these on my car now... Stops very quietly and far
better than OEM. They are fairly clean pads... won't cake your wheel black
in 2 days like OEM... To get to that level, you probably need about 1 month
PBR MetalMaster is dustless... literally. It take a bit more effort to stop
the car with MetalMaster, but the stopping is incredible... zero fading and
excelent modulating control. Noiser, but no squeal... it would sound like a
miniature version of airplane braking after it land.
You can't go wrong with either pads. My current car has Ultimate in front
and MetalMaster in rear... they didn't have Ultimate for the rear at the
time of my order.
