The most popular ceramic brake pad set we sell

If you like to drive, but don’t like dirty wheels, Akebono is for you. Akebono is a producer of brake system parts that was established in 1929 in Japan, when less than 300 cars were manufactured that year. Today Akebono is global and making both OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and aftermarket parts. Akebono is the largest OEM friction pad supplier in the world and is also the originator of ceramic brake pad technology. They invest heavily in research and design and have different brake pad formulas for specific combinations of car, model and application (daily vs. racing). FCP primarily offers the Akebono Euro Ultra Premium ceramic line of brake pads because of their excellent combination of braking performance low noise and low brake dust.

The use of highly advanced ceramic brake pad technology allows Akebono’s “EURO” pad line to provide excellent stopping power while extending rotor life and virtually eliminating brake dust.

  • Increased stopping power in critical braking situations
  • Improved pad wear performance over conventional disc pads
  • Reduced rotor wear by as much as 80 percent
  • No break-in required
  • Ultra-quiet, positive, smooth braking performance
  • High resistance to fade with fast recovery
  • More consistent pedal feel
  • Low dusting and precision fit

Great fit. Quiet even when hard braking. Produce very little brake dust compared to BMW pads. Great pads overall.

Just installed 500 miles ago: so far so good, no brake dust observed on recently refinished wheels. Quiet, linear performance.

Rear Brake Pads

Great product, fit and quality are great. After replacing the front pads a year or so ago had to the rear as well.

2003 525i No More Brake Dust

Tired of cleaning brake dust off your wheels? Used to have to clean the wheels every 2 weeks. Replaced both front and rear with these 5K ago and now only clean the wheels when I wash the car. These are quality parts that fit perfectly, don't make any noise and I can't tell any difference in performance from stock. From now on, I won't buy any thing else.

Some of the reviewers above may have been rewarded for their positive & negative reviews. We don't hold anything back.
