Product Details

Pro-ACT™ Ultra-Premium Ceramic Brake Pads by Akebono®. These pads combine OE quality and fit with application-specific friction formulations to deliver a superior level of braking performance.

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.

Founded in Japan in 1929, Akebono® is a key resource for both OEMs and the automotive aftermarket all around the globe. In the 1980's, the company gained the leading position in the brake market in North America. Today it is the number one brake manufacturer in the world. The corporation operates manufacturing plants in Tennessee, Kentucky, and South Carolina. To provide consistent performance for comfort and confident control behind the wheel, every part by Akebono is backed by one of the most comprehensive Research and Development technical centers in the country and driven by customer satisfaction.

Akebono® ACT1522 - Pro-ACT™ Ultra-Premium
Installed on my 2015 Cruze, used for about 200KMs, very quiet brake pads. Will update my review upon reaching 1000KMs. Better than OEM pads for sure!!

Akebono® ACT1468 - Pro-ACT™ Ultra-Premium
Installed on my 2015 Cruze this weekend and they're good brakes pads so far. I only used them for about 200KM. Will update my review when used 1000+KM.

The Best Brake Pads I Ever Had!
I never like to buy car parts online, thinking I'll be receiving wrong items and having the stress of shipping them back. One day I was like "F*** It", and decided to give it a chance and search for brake pads that I needed for my Geny (Genesis Coupe). I'd found and bought some AKEBONOs over this platform (CARiD). They came in less than 4 days, very well sealed and in its original box. They're the best pads I ever had! From that moment on, my store of choice for car parts is CARID.

Stop Me Now!
From quick delivery to easy installation, so glad to have these on my car in Southeast Florida. Appearance is a 3 because other than in the box, you really don't see them!

Great Replacement Pads for Highlander
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.

Front Brake Pads for 2013 Subaru X-Trek
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.

Good Products
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.
