Akebono Brake Pads Review – During the day I run a brake & alignment shop and I only install the best brake pads I can get. Akebono is an original equipment brake pad supplier to a number of car makers. If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough from me.
The thing I like about Akebono pads is I never have comebacks from noise issues whenever I use them. The other thing is they feel like factory pads when you step on the brakes. Unlike cheap pads that don’t.
Used to be when I was doing brakes on a Honda, I’d always have to go to the dealer and buy the factory pad because If I used aftermarket pads I’d almost have a comeback everytime.
When our local parts house started carrying Akebono I started installing them and have never had one comeback since. For Asian vehicles they’re my first choice.
