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
