I'm giving ThermoQuiets a 3rd chance on my car. I would have a concern with the IMI being damaged by the caliper piston - but except for a occasional clunk they seem to be stopping the car quite well. I've tried them on a Honda Civic and a Nissan Quest with bad results.
Tried Thermoquiets on one of our cars before and after a while, they squealed so badly everytime the brakes were used that it was embarrassing. Replaced them with Monroe ceramic pads.
Have had good results with Akebono and Hawk pads and they will probably be my future choices for brake pads.
I've got Thermoquiets on my Jeep. They are quiet, perform well, and leave very little brake dust. I'll be getting another set, if I ever wear these out.
I had ThermoQuiets on my Honda and they stopped great and very lil dust however they didnt fit well and when you went from Reverse to Drive you heard a tap....
Went to dealer and he showed me how the Wagners were just a lil to short...
Went with Honda Pads that didnt last long but then got Wearever Plats and they were perfect.
However LOTS OF DUST.
