    Duralast Gold Brake Pads?

    I just bought a pair of Brembo Blanks from someone and got a used set of Autozone's Duralast Gold brake pads with them (pn DG749).
    They are ceramic...and should produce less brake dust.

    Does anyone have any experience with these? Are they any good?
    Thanks

    Cheap crappy pads. Probably made in China as well.

    Get a set of AC Delco, Hawk, of EBC pads instead. Even Wagner pads would be better.

    I have Duralast Ceramic pads on my car with rotorsonline drilled+slotted rotors. They're alright. Noticeably Better than stock or OEM-grade replacement. Very low dusting level.
