Default Brake pads difference

Hi all:
I'm anticipating the front brake pads on my 2005 Honda Accord Hybrid will
have to be replaced soon. What's the differences (pros/cons) between
semi-metallic and ceramic pads? W
hich one should I consider? Does brand names (e.g. Raybestos) really make a
difference. Thanks for any input!

Honda OEM (= original equipment manufacturer= the real
mccoy) brake pads
(1) cost about the same as high quality non-OEM ones
(2) do not put out the dust that many non-OEM ones do
(3) maybe most importantly, will help ensure that wear of
the brake rotors is not excessive.

A Honda owner can install non-OEM pads that use really hard
material, and so the pads themselves last long. But hard
pads will tend to reduce the lifetime of rotors, for one
thing, leading to greater expense and trouble in the long
run.

You can buy OEM pads online at a very competitive price at
places like bkhondaparts.com or slhondaparts.com . Your
local dealer may even now have an "internet store" where you
can buy at much reduced parts prices.

If you are concerned about price and if you live in Canada, buy Monroe
premium pads at Canadian tire. They often sell the front set for $35.
Note that you have to order for a 6CYL Accord as I found out. The pads
for 4CYL are so small I could use them on my bicycle. In any case,
these pads have very high friction i.e. car stops very quickly without
fade, plus they do not wear out the rotors. The pads wear out as quick
as a bar of soap.

honda oem pads don't give you this "option" so why waste time
considering? oem works better, costs about the same, and will save you
money on disk wear.
