How To Identify What Type Of Brake Pads You Need



When it comes to brake pads, there are several brake pads you need to consider to make sure you choose the right one for your application. What kind of car is it? What’s your driving style? Are you going to be hauling any heavy loads?

No matter what your answers are, EBC Brakes has plenty of options for you. They make it easy to identify each type by color.

Orange pads are the Extra Duty pads which are ideal for drivers with a tow rig. They’re made of a material that gives you a fade-free grip under a wide range of brake temperatures. They also have high-volume V-grooves that help remove dirt and debris and even cooling.

If you just need something for your daily driver, the Ultimax 2 might be what you’re looking for. It’s designed to give you long service without excessive wear to the brake disc or rotor. It’s engineered to generate a minimal amount of brake dust with quiet stopping power.

For your fun ride or go-fast car, the Red Stuff Ceramic brake pad is a good choice. It’s designed to accommodate on and off brake pedal use without brake fall off which can be a problem if you get aggressive. If you’re worried about brake dust, you’re in luck because these are EBC’s lowest dust pad.

If you’re looking to go even further, EBC also offers rotors. The rotors have a black thermal coating that help resist rust and corrosion. They also have dimples and slots.
