April 28, 2010I need to replace just the front pads on my 2001 F-150. Which is the better choice, semi-metallic or ceramic?
April 29, 2010I use ceramics. They work better and you don`t have to put up
with the black brake dust.
April 29, 2010I agree 100%, They do wear out the rotors quicker but the upside outweights the downside.
May 7, 2010I switched to Wagner Thermo Quiet! Semi Metallic and Ceramic. 11K so far and almost no brake dust.
May 7, 2010Those are the exact pads I installed. I was going to buy some ceramics at my local auto parts store, but all they had were cheapies. So I got the Wagner Thermo Quiets.
