What are the best Brake pads for my Volvo

What are the best Brake pads for my Volvo? That is a good question. With so many brake pad manufacturers claiming to make the best brake pad for each individual vehicle, how do you choose the best brake pad for a Volvo? Well, we have been installing brake pads on european cars for the better part of 25 years now, and I have to tell you that our #1 choice for brake pads for a Volvo are Akebono Brake Pads. Akebono Brake pads are some of the best high performance brake pads on the market. Ceramic brake pads offer great braking performance, wear well over time and are very lightweight -- all of which are important for high-performance driving. Because they're ceramic, these brake parts dissipate heat well, which keeps performance strong, even after repeated hard stops. They also don't break down very much with repeated use; that means they produce less dust than other types of brake pads -- and the dust that they do produce is lighter in color and doesn't stick to the wheels. Which means no ugly black front wheels on your shiny new Volvo. Akebono Brake pads are a little more expensive than your average local part store metallic pad, but over time you will truly see the benefit of spending that extra few bucks for the Akebono Brake Pads for your Volvo. And if you are a do it type of person, you can look at this full color pictorial and instructional page for replacing the brakes on your Volvo yourself.

I agree that Akebonos are great pads. Aisin is also entering in the after market brake pad arena and I believe they are OEM suppliers. Any thoughts on the European Ferodo Ceramics? They're a major OEM supplier.
