#4552299 - 10/23/17 06:32 PM Wagner OEX Brake Pad?

I need rear brakes on my 08 Liberty, and while I'm at it I will be swapping out the rotors. Jeeps seem to have an appetite for rear brakes, and living on Long Island doesn't help. I used AAP Wearever Gold brakes the last time and wasn't impressed, so this time around I thought I'd try the Wagner OEX. I read a few good reviews, and recall someone saying they were very good. I was looking for feedback from people who actually used them. TIA

The OEX is supposed to be a good set of pads. Anything specifically designed for truck/SUV use should serve you well. Remember that they are still relatively new, so you won't see many long-term results/reviews.

As far as rotors go, get the Wagner E-coated rotor (part number ending in E). Coated rotors are a very good idea in the northeast or anywhere you get lots of rust. Non-coated rotors rust overnight!

They didn't last nearly as long as OE and they ate up the rotors quite a bit more than I'm used to seeing. I caught them in plenty of time, but I want to change them while the weather is still good. I've used them before with good results on other vehicles, but I have a feeling they aren't that good on this application, and I want to give the OEX a try.

I realize they're a fairly new product. I was hoping with the large population here a few people used them. I should have my coated rotors tomorrow, and hope to do the job Sunday.

Totally different pad. Both GG friction ratings but the OEX use a traditional metal shim design.

OEX is the top wagner brake pads, but if you can get Akebonos, they are even better than the Wagners. If you need stopping power look at the Wagner Severe Duty. Commerial vans and police interceptors use them, but they are semi-metallic.. Make sure to get good coated rotors too. Federal Mogul makes most of the brake rotors and pads for Wagner and pads for Akebono.

The OEX's uses a dual shim design almost similar to most OEM brake pads. Importantly they are riveted since I've seen where the shims can slide off on floating caliper designs. This is my setup for the rear brakes on the Silverado:



Previous setup were oreilly rotors and Wagner TQ's. I was getting sick of the brake squeal and tried every possible solution to silence them and after the last solution failed that was it, those pads are coming off.

I still have the TQ's on the front but I'm waiting until I get my 17" Suburban wheels installed so I can do the 03-06 front brake conversion which uses a bigger rotor and caliper.

Are these GG ratings across the board? I thought I've seen different ratings for different applications, not sure.

Put the OEX and Coated Rotors on my Wife's 13 Malibu and just had a rear wheel off to replace a wheel bearing and they looked very good.
About 10 K on them.
I have used the Akebonos and they were also very good and would buy either.

Upstate New York Winters kill brakes and wheel bearings with the liquid calcium.....
The State guys say that now you can hear your car rust as you drive...

I am just giving you a hard time. Not being serious at all my friend. I know how hard you run yourself and that you work very hard too.

Coated rotors rust overnight also, because as soon as you use the brakes on a coated rotor, the pads will scrub off the coating, leaving bare metal exposed to the climate. It's the non-contact areas that will resist corrosion on coated rotors for a certain period of time.
