"I provided this review a month after installing the brake pads. They seem to be of good quality but the real test will be in at least a year out and determine how well they hold out to use. All in all I would expect a good product." posted by: Mready on September 6, 2011

"The instalation was easy and the brakes look good and and works fine, not even a squeak." posted by: law9005 on August 20, 2011

"I put Akebono Pro-Act Ultra-Preminum brake pads on my Infinity G35. My chrome alloy wheels would be covered in brake dust in just two days and now with the Akebono pads a week has gone by and no dust at all! I just can't believe how dust free these pads are and no noise what so ever. I will be putting these pads on all my cars in the future." posted by: Gary O. on June 4, 2009

"After reading lots of reviews I decided on these for my 2004 Accord V6 I wanted something that was not mushy and would hold up to my aggressive driving style. These deliver! I paired them w/ EBCs UPR non-slotted disks (again one of the best.) For the price of mediocre parts n labor at the big box stores I got superior parts that live up to my expectations. Installation is a snap if you have a few basic tools. still going strong after 20K miles and not worn by much. HINT: After installation ensure you properly break in the pads and disks. Look for info on how to do this and why its important. This will make both your pads and rotors last longer and avoid premature bent rotors that lead to shaking." posted by: Radman on July 13, 2013

"The pads are highly recommended. I did my research online and had never heard of this brand before. Having used this product before, the only bad thing I can say is that they pads will eat your rotors before they need to be replaced." posted by: backyard_mechanic on July 26, 2009 view all 4 reviews

"Ive been doing auto repair for over 30 years and I cannot get these brake pads to stop squealing.

"These pads are a quality product even the packing is done well; the inner box with pads are packed with a firm foam to keep the pads from moving around and possibly chip during shipment. Additionally a measured packet of anti-squel is included with the pads that is more than sufficient to complete the job. The performance thus far is superb. Thank you!" posted by: Mr. Fix-all on October 30, 2013

"These pads beat the stock pads hands down. I installed them, along with new rotors, in my driveway in New York state in January. It was also my first brake job on a BMW. Thanks to my Benley manual, I had very little trouble with the install. The only thing that required some work was breaking the old rotors loose, and using a good dead blow hammer for this helped a lot. I finished the last wheel just as a major snow storm was coming in. The pads have about 25,000 miles on them now and they've performed great. Good stopping power without being grabby, no squealing, and absolutely none of the dreaded brake dust. I'm a moderate driver so I haven't pushed them to their limit, but for my driving style they have been excellent." posted by: BorderMancer on September 20, 2009 view all 4 reviews

There really is no more important safety system on your vehicle than the braking system. Using high quality brakes can not only allow you to drive more safely, but you are also able to drive more confidently, which will make you more comfortable. For that reason, you always want to have the best brake equipment possible on your vehicle. Akebono has been an industry leader in the design and development of performance braking systems for a long time. Akebono brake pad sets are some of the best brake pads available for street applications. The Akebono brake pad set is slightly softer than many other types of brakes, which means that they grip the rotor better and they tend to wear more evenly. The source of a lot of brake problems, such as squealing and roughness, can oftentimes be caused by uneven brake pad wear. The Akebono brake pad set was developed specifically to create as little noise and dust as possible while still preserving excellent stopping capabilities. When you install an Akebono brake pad set, you can be confident that you are installing quality brakes. Their advanced design and smooth characteristics mean that your vehicle will be much more enjoyable to drive with an Akebono brake pad set installed. Auto parts customers completely deserve first-rate technical assistance when looking at reliable auto parts for their car or truck. Accordingly, we created a 24-hour, 7 day a week help call center to address your questions. To sweeten the deal, we offer totally free shipping on every order $50 or more. If you spot a better price somewhere else, give us a call - we will beat any price advertised elsewhere.

Whether you're cruising around town or navigating rough roads, you need reliable brake pads to keep you safe while driving. Vibration, overheating, and cracking are common in many brake pads, making simple stops difficult. We understand that finding the perfect pair of brake pads can be challenging, so we're taking the burden off your shoulders. We tested the Akebono brake pad set on our 2007 Honda Accord Coupe to see if this set lives up to its promise.

Features

  • Made from ceramic
  • Low dust
  • Asbestos free
  • Sold in sets of two
  • OE comparable
  • Front location
  • Include shims
  • Direct-fit backing plates
  • Black powder-coated backing plates
  • With high-temperature resistant moly tube
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Chamfered and shimmed design for (noise, vibration, and harshness) NVH control

What we liked

  • Most newly installed brake pads require a break-in period. We didn't have to go through that with the Akebono brake pad set. The pads grip the rotor just fine, and we didn't notice any decrease in performance despite the lack of break-in procedures.
  • Since they're made from ceramic, the brake pads don't cause as much damage to the rotors as other brake pads do. Moreover, they've reduced the braking noise of our vehicle. Out of all the ceramic brake pads we've tested, these pads provide the best noise-free braking, thanks to their chamfered and slotted design.
  • We enjoyed how the brake pads provide smooth braking action, even during panic stops. For drivers who have a habit of hard braking, these pads are an answered prayer.
  • The pads are high-temperature resistant, which makes them less susceptible to fade due to overheating.
  • The low-dust formulation kept our wheels shiny and clean. We didn't have to deal with any more brake dust.

What we didn't like

  • They're priced higher than most ceramic brake pads in the market, and these are just brake pads alone. Rotors are yet included in the set.

Our final say

Although the Akebono brake pad set is slightly more expensive than other brands, it gave our vehicle superior braking performance we seldom experience in other brake pads. If you're someone who puts quality above anything else, these pads would be ideal for you. However, the Akebono brake pad set may not be up your alley if you're looking for something with decent braking power, minus the hefty price tag.
