I have not used a set of these in a few years but I bartered work with someone and these fit the bill. It was a 2018 Camry XSE - part #'s 105.60150 (front) and 105.18050 (rear) were used. I replaced the front rotors due to pulsation and used Centric Premiums. The rear rotors were reused. Oddly enough the rear pads used a riveted shim instead of the clip-on style. The shim felt rubbery, more rubbery than the shim on the front pads. I still used M77 on the areas of the pad that the caliper and caliper piston contacted. I had the car in my possession for a while so I did an extended test drive. Compared to OE, these pads are a bit "soft" for the first few stops when cold. After they warm up, the pedal feel and friction levels are very similar to OE - probably 85% identical. Overall, the difference is not significant enough for the average driver to notice. Also, no noise. Price was $27 for the fronts and $29 for the rears which was less than OE and other options (Wearever, Akebono, etc.). In conclusion, these pads work fine for the average driver and I did not see a reason to spend extra money for more expensive aftermarket pads...
