2 cents worth, bought these and put them on the front of my 07 2.4 Accord coupe after having noise issues with organic pads. (Raybestos stock junk). Much, much better! No noise and no "grabbing", sticky feel, very smooth. Also, replace the slide brackets, (come with the ceramic kit). @ 61 dollars, excellent investment.
You'll also like the fact that your wheels will stay clean longer and they last MUCH longer than regular pads. Mine came with limited lifetime warranty. They've been on the car since 2010... roughly 60K now.

Do these ceramic pads put any wear on the rotors? I had heard that they will wear down the rotors faster then usual? Maybe I had heard incorrectly.
I just purchased new rotors (Wagner) after the ones I purchased with the car, finally warped slightly after 160K. I paid $100 for the set and they come with limited lifetime warranty just like the brake pads. So either way... pads, rotors, I'm covered for my next set. Don't know when I'll put them on as the pads are still good.

Lifetime warranty is the way to go. My GF bought a set of duralast pads from Autozone many moons ago... they last about a year but I've changed her brakes around five times already with no further expense, except my time.

New pads and new rotors need to bed in somewhat before achieving ideal braking efficiency.
True. Wipe rotors down with brake cleaner when installing. Once installed, go drive and slam hard on the brakes three or four times to bed.
