For $20 it's hard to say no unless they really suck.

Probably will stop but expect noise and lots of brake dust.

Brakepads need to be a subscription service much like vaccine boosters or software.  We need to get away from this idea of "owning" things.

They suck, but what doesn't these days

I saw some video how they make cheap brake pads! They have barefoot Indian guys loading powder in a press. In the end the product is wrapped and goes in a shiny box with a brand name. You would never know otherwise.
They seem to take a lot of pride in their work, weighing stuff out, etc. Could be better quality than some tyrone in Gary Indiana.

As opposed to buying oem at the dealer? Who the fuck does that? Ebc or Bendix is all I use.

­Yeah major brands only for brakes. I also like advance auto platinum brand. Very happy with them, they are very high quality.
No value craft shit. Brakes here fail more for rust jacking than wear.

Get from advance auto. Order online, find a discount code. Get their gold or platnium. Lifetime warranty. Can't go wrong with those. They are made one of the major OEM suppliers.

Next best is buying OEM, you can buy online but watch for very cheap prices. THey are fakes. Buy from a dealer who sells at cost on ebay.

That’s the thing, though. If you don’t drive like a jackass, brake pads should last 80-90K miles. If you’re not planning on keeping the car to 160K miles, you’re investing in the next guy’s brakes.

That’s why I buy Rural King batteries. At 5-7 years, the battery goes out. I probably won’t have the car for 14 years so no need to buy the good stuff.
