In the past I bought Chromebrakes brakes for my cars, but have since stayed away from them due to the shorter lifespan. Don't get me wrong, these brakes stop very well, and the brake dust is minimal. I drove a lot and so I was tired of always changing my brakes. I bought these for my father and did his brakes. He doesn't drive so much, so these should last a couple of years before the next job. He said they are really good; they stop quicker than his old OEM metallic brakes, and they don't squeak!
