Centric Brakes

The Center of it All for Braking

Centric was founded in Southern California in 2000. In the following decade, the company achieved international recognition for its high-quality aftermarket brake parts and systems manufactured under the Centric, PosiQuiet, StopTech, and C-Tek labels, having earned four patents along the way. Operating multiple warehouse and manufacturing facilities, Centric continually makes significant improvements to brake technology for the street and track.

Featured Products

Originally focusing on engineering and manufacturing replacement parts for everyday use, the company has expanded into the performance market by acquiring StopTech in 2006 and Power Slot in 2007. Today Centric has one of the industry’s finest programs for tracking and cataloging original equipment, and devising quality aftermarket and OE parts. Centric has been repeatedly awarded by the Friction Materials Standards Institute for this program.

These pads slid into my calipers like the calipers were shaped for the pads, and not the other way around. There was no stubborn break-in, and they are as quiet as could be. I could not be any happier with these break pads.

I ordered this product at the time I replaced my brake pads since the original rotors had worn to within .04mm of the wear limit. These rotors are an exact copy of the original equipment for all dimensions, came well packaged and protected and are performing as well as I had hoped with no vibration or pulsing. They arrived packed in a sealed and protected vinyl bag and were not covered with the usual wax/oil protected coating so they could be installed and used without having to clean them first. I would be happy to recommend these to my best friend and feel they are an excellent value for anyone wanting stock performance at a much lower cost than I have seen advertised at any dealer.

I just purchased these brake pads after noticing that the original pads had worn down close to the minimum limit. I liked the write-up for the Ctek Metallic pads as being and OE replacement. I am pleased so far with the purchase. They look exactly like the original equipment and fit perfectly on the caliper pistons. Stopping power seems to be equal to the original and there has been no squeal or vibration. I would highly recommend them to my best friend.

Very easy to install. Came with all the shims I needed. They work great so far with no noises and almost no brake dust.

I use these brakes on both my wife's car and my daily and they are great. Very easy to replace myself along with pads. They are super smooth and quiet but definitely stop the car when you press hard on the brake pedal.

Part was recommended by several mechanics, and product looks great. Only had them on for about a week, but so far so good. Great item and CARiD is the best place to get them, cheap and fast shipping.
