I was just on here and read someone wants to know where to get ceramic brake pads. The lowest price I saw you guys talking about was almost $70.00. You can buy Bosch ceramic brake pads online. They cost 49.99 and there is a 10 dollar rebate.www.murraysdiscount.com

I'm sure the price varies on brand name. I switched to ceramic pads and I didnt spend over 60$.

50 bucks for the raybestos for me, too. I don't really perefer Bosch anything after my spark plug and O2 nightmares. Just my preference. Thanks for the tip, though. 10 bucks is a good amount of beer.

are the ceramic brake pads good for reducing that nasty dust that keeps building up on my front rims? are there any other advantages?

For me the lack of brake dust is the best benefit. They should also be quieter and last longer as well.
