CENTRIC POSI QUIET SEMI-METALLIC BRAKE PADS, 2-WHEEL SET

Centric Posi Quiet Semi-Metallic Brake Pads are 100 percent asbestos-free and are made using the same positive molding process utilized by OE manufacturers, assuring consistent friction material density throughout the pad resulting in even wear and performance. These feature either precision cut or shaved backing plates, and mechanically attached shims to ensure proper fitting in the caliper, virtually eliminating noise associated with pad vibration. A special scorching process forces any impurities out of the friction material and accelerates the break-in process. This promotes earlier and more complete bed-in of the pads, thereby increasing their effective stopping power from the very first stop.

Features:

  • 100% asbestos and copper free formulas
  • Incredible wear and fade resistance
  • Scorched for faster break-in
  • Produces minimal brake dust for cleaner wheels
  • Mechanically-attached shims reduce brake noise
  • Secure application-specific fit
  • Shorter stopping distance as compared to other standard brake pads
  • Stable friction performance across a broad temperature range
  • Superior heat recovery under sustained and aggressive braking

Item Details:

  • Includes shims
  • SKU#: CE104.13090
  • Brand: Centric
  • Fit Note: Coupe, From 1/12, Hatchback, To 12/11, Wagon

Rating: (see review/s)

"I purchased these for the rear only on my Mini Clubman in an attempt to getting stronger breaking in the rear since I felt the stock setup was a bit too front biased. It has definitely helped as evidenced by the stopping power when using only the handbrake. If you have a wear sensor to install be sure to clean out the slot with a small file or knife before installing the sensor. There were some pretty good sized pieces of paint in the slot that might impede sensor insertion." posted by: swizzy on May 8, 2014

Driving a head-turning, attention-grabbing compact car like the Mini Cooper sounds cool. Just make sure that people look at your car for the right reasons. A Cooper halting to a screech could be a nice entrance, but sometimes the screeching is actually due to worn-out brake pads. If the stock brake pads of your tiny ride are thinner than their usual size, then replacing them with fresh pads is the best solution. You can even choose the type of material for your new brake pads; choose between the affordable semi-metallic, the durable ceramic, or the cost-effective organic pads. Either way, you are sure to steal the scene with smooth handling every time you arrive.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ask APW
  • How often should the brake pads of a Mini Cooper be replaced?
    Answer: To ensure proper handling and control of the Mini Cooper, the brake pads should be replaced every 10,000 miles. Also, if the brake pad linings are already worn-out, and it can no longer trigger the pad replacement sensor, then it should be replaced right away. If the Mini Cooper owner does not check the brake pads often, then the brake warning light will remind him/her that the brake pads are messed up, and they need to be replaced. Keeping the Cooper with damaged pads could damage the larger components, which would be more expensive compared to replacing the pads.
  • The factory stock brake pads of a Mini Cooper have been replaced with aftermarket units. What should be done to ensure that the new pads will not wear out easily?
    Answer: When the brakes are pressed, the pads produce dust that could hamper the entire assembly and cause brake noise--if not cleaned. Periodically checking the pads for damages, such as cracks and wear would make them more durable. Common brake pad problems, regardless of the quality of the pads, are cracking, glazing, and overheating. These happen when the brake pads are still used even though they are already worn-out. It is better to replace worn-out pads before they cause even greater problems with the brake assembly.
  • Semi-metallic, ceramic, or organic: which material type of brake pad is the most cost-effective for a Mini Cooper?
    Answer: Ceramic brake pads are undoubtedly the best type in terms of durability and function. Its has lower chances of wearing out, and it provides lesser brake dust than the other types. Along with its benefits comes a surprisingly high price. A cheaper but good option is the organic brake pads. This type of material produces lesser dust, and provides silent braking compared to the semi-metallic pads. This costs around $90 to $100, $10 to $20 cheaper than ceramic pads.
