Brake squeal, BE GONE!
Yeah, that sums it up.
Also, I’m using an old pic of pads for the previous-gen cars because I don’t have a good product pic for the new pads. The information is more important than the pic, so don’t judge.
Brake pads vary greatly in a few key ways. Initial bite, braking performance when cold or hot, rotor "friendliness" (how much they chew up brake rotors), dust, and noise are the main concerns for most of us that pay attention to such things. I've been running Porterfield's R4-S brake pads on my V8 Vantage for several months, including track days, and today I'm swapping them out for the more track-oriented R4 pad.
