Meaning Akebono have the best quality brake pads.
    I knew they were good but I didn't think they'd be better than EBC. EBC claims their Greenstuff is better than OEM. Maybe they're talking about another OEM supplier. Maybe EBC's Yellowstuff would do better vs the OE Akebonos but those pads are a lot more expensive.

    There aren't many who've PMU'd. That's an archived pic. Initially it was cast an anomaly...but repeated use & inspection on a bud's found it wasn't. This was about 5years ago. Bad batch? I hope. Corrected? I sure hope so. Just check upon every PMS. PMUs are generally bang4buck/bite.
    EBC in the early 2000s also had bad batches where pads sheared. I had 1st hand failure on Greens way back(archived pic of my rear green below, half sheared off). Retried them lately, so far, they've been w/o problems. Keeping an eye on them. Reds bite better & cleaner.

    Who couldnít complain? I bought my Project Mu front pads for the FXT at Autoplus for only 2700. Thatís way cheaper than what you will pay for at the casa.

    True...Bang4buck/bite they are, bai. Just keep an eye, fluke or not.
    Carbotech, G-Loc, Hawk are among the good ones. Dunno if locally available, tho.
