    04 brake pads

    jus got a set of semi metalics and to say the least im not very happy with them. i was looking into a set of ceramics but i heard that they eat the rotors. is this true? also do the semi ceramics and yellow stuff pads have this effect?

    I run Wagner ThermoQuiet pads on mine. When I bought my car(used) it had EBC Red Stuff pads and they were pretty good...just turned my rims bronze.

    Some guys run C5 Z06 pads and just lose the tabs. Any of you guys do that? Its something I saw on another GTO board.

    Pretty sure that's only for GTO's with the 05-06 brake system; the 04's are smaller and don't use the Corvette part #'s

    I have C5 front pads in mine. Not sure if the C5 Zo6 are any different in size
