    Default Which brand of pads for the front calipers???

    Hi, having recently endured a nightmare of squeeling and pads rattling around in the calipers after fitting cheap ones, I've decided to fit better quality.

    Can anyone reccomend which brand to buy that are reliable, well fitting and quiet????

    Thanks!

    Mtec will be just as good and cheaper but they are known to squeak.

    In this case it may be better to keep with OEM parts?

    Mintex in mine. I did have the gm aftermarket ones that came with the disc and pad kit but they were very poor.
