    no never an issue on all the mintex pads i have ever fitted.

    If they are rattling on the rears it could be that they have sold you the old superceeded version. the later versions had a spring fitted to the top of the inner pad which used to rattle, same with GM pads.

    Vehicle : vectra

    Trim : VXR

    Engine : 2.8 v6 Turbo

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 69k

    Default

    ive had two sets of cheap pads in the rear no problems, however the front did not like the fronts at all one squeeled and the other cluncked in the caliper very anoying, so changed them for GM ones, sorted . but there was another problem one of the pads had a crack down the middle so i got my money back for them lol it was only a tenner dearer, worth it for less hassle lol.
