Advanced cars require advanced brake pads. Though other brake pads may be made to be similar to OEM standards, our R1 Concepts Ultimate OE brake pads are constructed to be better in terms of longevity, performance, and value. Our brake pads have a lower price and superior performance. They are a sophisticated and technologically-advanced option for the modern driver and modern vehicles. There are numerous incredible benefits of using Ultimate OE brake pads: long wear, low noise, and very low dust.
Same Original Equipment Process
Better brake pads mean less wear on your vehicle - and better performance when you're out on the road. Our OE brake pads provide accurate and ultimate stopping performance, due to the superior processes that we use. This includes post-curing for even better durability and an advanced OE formulation. Our advanced brake pads have rubber coated shims for smoother, quieter operations, making them the perfect solution for everything from sports cars to luxury models. We also use the same positive molding process used for OEM brake pads, ensuring that our brake pads are perfect from the materials to the process.

Complete your brake install with these products. If your vehicle has a brake warning system, be sure to replace your brake sensors if brake warning light appears. Change your brake pads when replacing brake rotors for best performance and longevity. It's always good to replace your brake fluid every few years (please follow your vehicle's owners manual).
