O' Reilly Brake Pads are Standard Brake Economy, Brakebest, Brakebest Slect, and Wagner. They all carried Lifetime Warranty but the problem with all these brands is that they all suck *** and will quickly eat the rotor to **** and cause squealing and hard braking within a month after installation. I would strongly avoid these brands and buy OEM, Hawk, EBC, etc...

I'm sure that O'Reilly has somebody good or acceptable manufacture their brakes, but online is so much cheaper. I don't like having to wait an extra week, but the prices and quality of Centric parts are tough to beat.

I just ordered 4 new rotors and ceramic brake pads for my sister's 2008 Civic. $170 shipped to my door!

My boss has been buying them. I'm always leery of the parts my boss buys these days because he is really getting cheap on everything. However, I have had no problems with them. They bed in easily and I have had zero noise complaints. I think if you do the job right and machine the rotors properly and apply copper anti-seize to the back of the pads you will have no noise and wear problems

As far as auto parts store brakes I can say I've had great results using AutoZone Duralast Gold brakes. Probably installed near 100 sets and nobody has complained yet and I actually have them on 2 of my vehicles. Good price too. I tend to not care much for O'Rielly's but that is just my opinion and preference.

I never pursued using the O'Reilly brand. Like GMBoy, I have had good service with AutoZone's better line. I think they are the only brand left that still has the free lifetime replacement, even for wear.

They do - just bring 'em in and they will give you a new set. No matter if you have 10k miles or 100k miles you get new brakes.

Had a pair of Brake Best Select on a 1996 Camry. At 70,000 miles of hard city driving, I had about 30% pad left.

I'd recommend them.

I'm a year in my Brakebest Brand ceramics from O'Reilly and no problems. I've had none of the issues one previous poster mentioned above such as squeeling, pulling, or vibration. Yes, it's made by Bosch so it's from a well-known brand. I think it's fine for my low output VW Jetta. I drive through some hilly areas and I haven't experienced any fading yet.

I was looking at a set for the dual piston rear brake caliper on my Silverado and while they are made in China, it has everything I was looking for. The NAPA pads I have now does not have dimples on the pad backing plate causing the shim to slide off the pad backing.
