Brake Pad Choice

Am deciding between Calibre (Supercheap brand of Bendex, apparently) and Ferodo. For a Commodore Ute, normal use. Much difference between! Appreciate your comments. Cheers.

I would use the proper Bendix, have used the cheap ones and they sqeal a bit

Both are pretty average.

I'd recomend C Plus from BNT for a daily driver. If you carry some weight or tow a trailer try Bendex Heavy Duty (also BNT).

C plus, not only are they cheap they produce low dust and grip well.

Depends which version of Ferodo pad you are looking at.

I would not recommend the Bendix HD pads, put them in my Falcon and dont rate them at all, average pedal feel and noise at low speed.

Hearing lots of good things about Repco TQ from trade sources.

Thanks all. Any further votes for or against C Plus!

C + are good. Otherwise Bendix a good option from BNT as well.

Would stay away from Ferodo's, a lot of cars I've seen with them fitted have chewed through the rotors or worn them unevenly.

Thanks all, Will go with C-Plus. Cheers.
