            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.

            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.

            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.
