The compound used in Akebono's ceramic brake pads are unmatched. Ceramic pads do not absorb heat as rapidly, meaning heavy braking in hot conditions will not lead to an early wall exit. With a much higher co-efficient of friction, stopping distances are reduced as stopping power is increased. Also, because of their lower metal content, brake dust is all but eliminated. All of this comes with the added benefit of drastically increased brake rotor life.
If it's time to replace your pads, it is also a good idea replace your rotors to get maximum braking performance and longer life out of your brakes. Replacing just one component can result in problems down the road. ECS carries a wide variety of brake rotors for your vehicle. With new pads and rotors, you need to make sure they are bedded and mated with each other. To be sure they are, follow the brake pad bedding procedure on ECS Tuning's site.
