Pro-ACT brake pads utilize the aftermarket’s only OE-validated, application-specific friction formulations to provide excellent braking performance. With Pro-ACT, many car owners receive OE-quality replacements as Akebono is the Original Equipment Manufacturer for a great number of popular Japanese and domestic vehicles, while owners of other makes experience an upgrade from the conventional pads. To provide NVH control (control of noise, vibration, and hardness), every Pro-ACT pad application contains an average of 20 raw ingredients essential to the elimination of NVH. Conventional friction formulations may contain no more than 8, for substantially reduced NVH control. Precision-fit shims are also incorporated into the design and pads are slotted and chamfered, where applicable, to further eliminate noise and deliver ultra-quiet braking performance.

With Pro-ACT pads you will experience more consistent and smooth braking power over a variety of driving conditions, including panic stops and no break-in procedure is required. The innovative Ceramic Technology produces high resistance to fade and ultra-low dusting for cleaner wheels and tires while providing significantly improved pad wear performance compared to traditional brake pads. Pro-ACT pad formulations are “rotor friendly” and prevent uneven rotor wear and annoying brake pulsation.

Same as the Front pads. Solid stopping power that you would expect, but not a big improvement with more bite from the original brakes. Fortunately, that is what I wanted. Just something like OEM without the cost. The little packet of lube that comes with the pads was a limited amount, but nice to be included. Having extra lube like Permatex® 85188 is a good thing to have so you can lube the caliper slide pins any time you change the brakes (just pull the slide pin out of the rubber boots/guide bushing, put a good coat of lube on the pin and reinsert, don't be afraid:). Make sure you mark the box of pads as "Front" or "Rear" when you get them to make it easier to identify when you are ready to install. The box doesn't have a clear marker of that.

Akebono brake pads are very smooth. The installation was very easy. They're expensive. The original pads lasted me 82,000 km. There were about 20 % left but were becoming out of shape.

I bought the rear brake pads. They were easy to install and the peddle feels extremely strong when braking hard. I would suggest that anyone who likes to cruise at high speeds in any regular/luxury car that they should purchase these brake pads. These pads last longer than the usual pads.

Nothing much to say other then, always buy Akebono, the parts are also OEM so you're not just buying the right part, but getting a better performance out of the brakes.
