I think perhaps the thermoquiets are formulated with the realization that we buy these liners for the sake of keeping our rims from looking like a coal furnace.
So the brake fade properties are maybe disregarded to a degree in favor of a softer, quieter liner.
I only noticed the screech sound for a short while during the end of my stops, and in one rotor. Everything I researched about ceramics had been about industrial applications and the introduction of ceramic material into the auto stores. My rotors look to be wearing normally and I'm honestly not even worried. It's been six months. I will be using these pads again. With more anti-squeel compound slathered on the backings.

I would go with ceramic anyways. I've heard they last longer and stop better

I use ceramic on my T/A, stops great and last a long while and you never get that ugly black powder on your rims.

So the ceramic pads are best for chrome rims and semi metallic are best for black rims? If so what's the diff between them cause I wanna get ceramics and I have black rims

He can't, it's in his contract that he must "get in the zone" for all his vehicles for the length of employment.

I don't know what I have on my truck as far as front pads go, but I have to clean my wheels twice a week to get all the brake dust off. I'm definitely gonna look into ceramic stuffs.
