Just a quick update on a combo I have been running on my Silverado the last couple of years... I replaced the pads and rotors around the end of of 2016 with the subject parts. I did it mostly to handle towing a F27PC Formula cruiser...which I only did twice a year here in Iowa for about 50 miles. I only made this trip twice. Environment: My truck is driven once a week to make sure everything is working, brakes don't rust, etc. (in winter I drive it more often due to snow) My truck is normally used to haul stuff to/from home improvement stores, trailers, take our new smaller (25') boat to the lake, etc. My truck maybe gets 7000 miles per year...most of it on vacation (yearly oil changes with 0w-40 and oversized oil filter for my BITOG friends) I drive my truck to the mountains where I know how to use the manual shift, and almost never use the brakes on the mountains... Condition: I was towing the boat to our local lake (~50 miles, and we have downgraded to a roughly 25' Bowrider two years ago)...I left home and everything seemed fine. Mostly highway trip, but when I got to the lake, I felt grinding enough that my wife even asked what was wrong. I knew right away what it was, launched the boat, enjoyed the day, and then parked the truck to have a brake replacement. Observations: Rear brakes were non-drilled, non-slotted premium rotors with the same pads. They are less than 50% worn (yes, I know rears wear slower than fronts) Front Rotors on the inside were worn to the point you could almost not feel the slots anymore, outside looked ok Left side inboard pad was worn to the point that the backing material was my braking surface (even wear) - this was source of noise Right side inboard pad was almost to the same point... outside pads were 75% worn Thoughts: Shortest living rotor/pad combo I have ever run. Nice to have fade free performance, but not at this much of an expense to life Odd to have no warning of impending failure...expected squeeking, or SOMETHING to warn me I needed to service my brakes Odd the inside rotors wore so badly Braking performance was good...but not stellar. Just meh...but without fade. Actions: New pads and rotors Pads: Autozone Duralast MAX ceramic Rotors: Autozone Duralast Gold coated rotors (wow, these were new to me...black coating you don't clean off before using?!?!?!?!) - any feedback/comments on these would be great!!!! Reactions: I didn't realize how poorly my braking performance had deteriorated until I took it out for the first test drive. Bedded them in with several 60-5 mph stops without stopping, and they feel great! Excited to tow the boat this weekend and see how they do!
